Suryakumar Yadav completely destroyed Hong Kong here tonight. India’s opponents did well in the opening 15 overs, but when SKY entered the match, he slammed an undefeated 68 off just 26 deliveries, which completely changed the course of this innings.
He hit four sixes in that final over, assisting India in reaching 192/2. The total meant that India posted a winning total.
Virat Kohli too looked scratchy but he scampered his way through to this tournament’s first half-century. Though hardly his most polished fifty, Kohli clearly needed it in his comeback tournament.
You Got To Be Flexible With Your Batting Position: Suryakumar Yadav
Earlier in the day, Nizakat Khan, the captain of Hong Kong, chose to bowl first after winning the toss. Even Rohit wanted to bowl first but he had to do with batting first. India made one change to their starting lineup for their second group game in Dubai, resting Hardik Pandya.
While Rohit continued his attacking approach when he came out to bat, KL Rahul struggled to get going. He scored just 36 runs and took 39 balls for it.
Surya was awarded the player of the match for his performance, “Some of [my shots] are predetermined because this format is about how you prepare when you go in to bat, but it’s important to stay in the present when you go out there. [The pitch] was a little slow, watching from outside, but my plan was clear.
My role was to take the tempo up and express myself. [Adapting to different roles] I think you’ve got to be flexible, you should be good to bat at any number. I really love and enjoy it.”
