There are many inspirational cricket players in the world who have overcome obstacles to achieve their objectives. The player’s age has a significant impact on his or her career, but cricket’s late bloomers, like Praveen Thambe and Michael Hussey, have broken down the age barrier and begun new eras in the gentleman’s game. The fiery Indian batter Surya Kumar Yadav has joined the ranks of these extraordinary late bloomers.
For almost ten years, Surya Kumar Yadav has competed in the Indian Premier League. With his local team, the Mumbai Indians, he made his IPL debut in 2012. Since then, the batter’s exceptional play has won him a spot in the starting lineup for every team he has ever played for. His bat helped him win games, but he wasn’t selected for the national team until 2021. At the age of 30, Surya Kumar Yadav was chosen for the national squad and has since achieved great success.
Let’s quickly review this late bloomer’s career.
Surya Kumar Yadav, the Indian Mr.360
The guiding principle of Surya Kumar Yadav is “Dream-Work-Achieve.” He sets high standards for himself, works hard, and achieves them. Recent victories for Team India were made possible by his excellent innings. Surya has a powerful will and an independent mentality. He continuously has the willingness and courage to take on new challenges. His batting strategy and results this year just speak for themselves. He is frequently dubbed as the Indian Mr. 360 by fans because of his batting technique and uncanny similarity to AB de Villiers, the first Mr. 360.
2022, a notable year for Surya Kumar Yadav
Surya Kumar Yadav, who scored 404 runs in a total of 11 innings this season, is recognised as the best Indian T20 batsman in 2022. Surya outperforms every other Indian player with an average of 40.40. His hit rate is 190.56 percent. So far this year, he has two half-centuries and a century (117). Surya Kumar Yadav is now behind KL Rahul in terms of the stats from the first 20 T20 games. In the first 20 games, KL Rahul scored 755 runs at a strike rate of 153 and an average of 47, while Surya Kumar Yadav scored 648 runs at an average of 38 and a strike rate of 176.
Acceptance of challenges
Whatever obstacles are put in his path, Surya Kumar rises to them. In the current T20 series against the West Indies, Suriya was named as the opener. He failed in the first two games, but won the third one by demonstrating his talent. In just 44 balls, he scored 76 runs, leading Team India to victory.
Just one step behind the No.1 rank
Surya Kumar Yadav continues to be second in the ICC T20 rankings. Pakistan player Babar Azam is in the first position with 818 points, while Surya Kumar Yadav is in the second position with 816 points.
Among his followers, Surya enjoys a good reputation. Surya prevents disruptions to his performance by concentrating on his game rather than engaging in controversies. It won’t come as a surprise if Surya quickly moves up to the top spot in the ICC T20 rankings.
