The Indian team started the five-match T20I series against Australia with a win. Team India won the first match of the series played at Visakhapatnam by 2 wickets. Now the second match of this series will be played on November 26 at Thiruvananthapuram ground. In the first match of the series, Surya Kumar Yadav, who was the captain of the Indian team, had a wonderful innings of 80 runs with the bat. Couldn’t get it done yet.
Suryakumar Yadav can become the first Indian player to do so.
In the ODI World Cup 2023, Surya Kumar Yadav was not able to give any special performance with his bat, due to which he also faced criticism. Surya Kumar is currently ranked No. 1 in the ICCT20 batting rankings and this is due to his impressive performances in the last few matches. In the first T20 match against Australia, the Indian team could chase down the target of 209 runs only on the basis of Suriya’s innings of 80 runs off 42 balls. This was Suriya’s third consecutive half-century in T20 Internationals along with his innings against Australia. Before this match, Surya Kumar had played his last 2 T20 matches on the tour of West Indies in which he scored consecutive half-centuries. Now, if Surya manages to score a half-century in the second T20 match against Australia, he will become the first Indian player to score a half-century in consecutive T20 matches.
Virat and Rohit managed to bowl three consecutive innings.
So far, five players from Team India have managed to score half-centuries in three consecutive innings in T20 Internationals. Virat Kohli is the first to achieve this feat in 2012, 2014 and 2016. Next is Rohit Sharma who has achieved this feat in the year 2018. While KL Rahul has achieved this feat in 2020 and 2021, Shreyas Iyer also scored half-centuries in three consecutive T20I matches in 2022. Apart from this, Surya Kumar Yadav has once again achieved this feat after the year 2022.
