Suryakumar Yadav hit an unbeaten 61 off 25 deliveries to lead India to a competitive total of 186/5 in their last Super 12 encounter of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup on Sunday at the MCG in Melbourne.

Craig Ervine, We wanted to bowl first. In the evening, the ball may slip through under the lights. Wellington and Munyonga have been added, whereas Milton has struggled and we wanted to give Tony an opportunity. We needed Wellington Masakadza’s spin since Luke Jongwe was injured.
Suryakumar at his best
He stepped in to bat with India at 87/2 in the 12th over of the innings and immediately went on the attack. Yadav hammered six fours and four sixes throughout his magnificent effort, despite the fact that the other middle-order hitters struggled to get going.
KL Rahul had earlier played a superb knock of 51 off 35 deliveries to set the tone for India. Following South Africa’s loss against the Netherlands earlier in the day, India has already qualified for the semi-finals. They would still like to win this game in order to finish first in Group 2 and go to the semi-finals against England.
