Pakistani wicketkeeper batsman Kamran Akmal praised Suryakumar Yadav of India and stated that the way he batted against Sri Lanka was simply incredible. He also added that India beat the Sri Lanka regular team away from home, which was not easy, and praised their second ODI win.
There was a time in the second ODI between India and Sri Lanka when Suryakumar hit Yadav so effortlessly that he seemed unstoppable. He was able to place the ball in different places every subsequent delivery, which was just remarkable to watch. Hailed as India’s Mr.360, the 30-year-old continued to impress, bringing in his first fifty in one-day internationals.
While he couldn’t finish the chase, it didn’t stop him from standing out from the rest of the Specialized batters. He had also played a notable cameo in the first ODI. Pakistani cricket expert Kamran Akmal praised India’s middle-order batsman, suggesting that he batted like a seasoned campaigner against the Lankan bowlers, calling his bats “incredible”.
“The way Suryakumar hit Yadav was incredible. He showed the maturity and composure of a batsman who has played 70-80 ODI’s. His vast experience of playing domestic cricket boded well for him. He played authoritatively during his stay in the crease, but unfortunately got LBW at a crucial moment,” said Kamran Akmal, HT reported.
India took a memorable win from the jaws of defeat to Sri Lanka in the second OD, thanks to an 84-run eight-wicket tie between Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, with the former making a brilliant half-century. With the win, the Men in Blue took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game series. Akmal further praised the Shikhar Dhawan-led side, claiming it wasn’t an easy win, especially after losing wickets in a heap.
“Thanks to the Indian team. Winning on Sri Lankan soil with the young team and new coaching staff is a commendable task. They also did it against the regular side of the home team, which is not an easy task.
“India played really well on this tour, especially in the second ODI. Even after losing six wickets at just 160, they still managed to win the game from that difficult situation,” he said.
The third and final ODI of the series will take place in Colombo on July 23, followed by the three-match T20I series.
