The Indians have mastered the White ball format completely being the number 1 ranked team in both ODI’s and T20’s. The number of talented players has been noticed in the T20 format as well. The IPL has also given the Indian team some of the most talented players ever known in the country. This is a format that has been the most popular among the fans due to its fast-paced nature that is filled with big sixes and thrilling matches. The format also has no room for error where the batters cannot afford dot balls and the bowlers cannot afford the boundaries.
The one player who has been an absolute revelation in the Indian team has been Surya Kumar Yadav also known as SKY by the fans. Surya has been the best batter in T20I’s for India with over 2000 runs in his 60 games at an average of over 45. The strike rate of 171.55 has only made him a dangerous batter in the game right now. Surya has been known as the modern-day 360 player capable of playing shots all around the ground and putting the bowlers under pressure. The IPL is where he came into the limelight for the Mumbai Indians, but it is the national squad where he has made the most impact.
Sky named the T20I Player of the Year 2023
With all the achievements of Surya in T20 there is no surprise in him being named as the T20I player of the year of 2023. Surya has been giving consistent performances last season and deserves this award. He might be missing out on some games right now due to injury, but that does not mean that his phenomenal knocks can be ignored. He has been an important player in the team who is capable of playing the big innings and winning games for his side. It all looks great for the 33-year-old skilled batter who has already got enough recognition to be named as one of the best players in the shortest format.
This explains how much of an impact Surya has made in his two-year career where he has played a lot of great knocks. The people will be wanting Surya to get back to full fitness and give those same breath-taking performances he is known for. These are great times for Indian cricket and we hope to see this continue throughout. The players like Surya Kumar Yadav have made India a complete superpower in the shortest format and it looks like he is going to have a long career going forward.
