Watch: "Iconic Moments Like This..." - Suryakumar Yadav's Outrageous Six
T20 World Cup: Suryakumar Yadav went across the stumps and played a scoop shot over backward square leg on the ball that was bowled outside the tramline.
Suryakumar Yadav is in the form of his life. The right-handed batter has set the stage on fire with his sensational stroke play at the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. He is the spine of India's middle-order and continues to deliver for the side, more often than not. Sunday was no expectation for the star batter when India faced Zimbabwe at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. He scored a fancy 61 not out off only 25 balls, an innings that was laced with six fours and four sixes.
Suryakumar's knock on Sunday included some breath-taking and unbelievable shots. In the last over of India's batting, he hit a sensational scoop that left the fans dumbstruck.
On the third ball of the 20th over, bowled by Zimbabwe's left-arm pacer Richard Ngarava, Suryakumar went across the stumps to play a shot on the leg side.
Ngarava followed the batter and bowled a full toss to him near the tramline, but Suryakumar still managed to scoop the ball from there for a six over backward square leg.
