Suryakumar Yadav is currently the T20I’s No. 1 batter and his knockout against Zimbabwe in the T20 World Cup Super 12 stage proved why the batter is so highly regarded among cricket fraternities. The right-handed batter struck out for 61 runs off just 25 balls using 6 fours and 4 sixes. This batter’s innings helped Team India to 186/5 in 20 overs. The batter had walked to go on to bat in the 12th over, and he gave the Indian innings some much-needed momentum, and the Melbourne crowd was in for a treat.
After the match that Team India won by 71 runs, Suryakumar Yadav took to Instagram to share photos from the match, captioning the post as, “Not feeling better.”
On the post, Virat Kohli left a comment that read: “Alag level”. As soon as the former India skipper left this comment, fans caused it to go viral on social media.
Even the official BCCI Twitter handle shared Kohli’s comment and they wrote, “.@imVkohli approves.”

This was Suryakumar’s third half-century of the tournament and he once again played some stunning strokes in the match.
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri asked Suryakumar about the slope shot that gave the Indian batter a six over deep fine leg. Surya explained how he prepared to play the trick.
“I mean, you have to understand what the bowler is going to bowl at that moment. That’s kind of predetermined at that moment. I practiced the stroke a lot, when I played a lot of rubber ball cricket. So, you have to think what the bowler is up to that moment thinks.
“When the field is in, I just go back to go there,” Suryakumar said.
