Tim Southee on Surya Kumar Yadav: India has won a resounding victory by 65 runs in the second T20 played against New Zealand. The role of Surya Kumar Yadav was very important in giving this victory to India, who took India to a big score by scoring a brilliant century. Surya Kumar’s innings was so spectacular that even Kiwi fast bowler Tim Southee could not stop himself from praising him. Southee has said that Surya Kumar’s innings was amazing and he is a great batsman.
Southey said, "He is such a player who can hit in many ways. His form has been excellent in the last 12 months, in which he has done well in both IPL and international cricket. Even today his innings was excellent. There are many best T20 players in India. Surya was given 12 months and he can do what he is doing for a long time. India has produced many great cricketers not only in T20 but in all the three formats."
Southee also achieved a hat-trick
Southee took a hat-trick in the last over of the innings and definitely reduced some runs from India’s score. Southee completed his hat-trick by dismissing Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda and Washington Sundar. This was the second hat-trick of Southee’s T20 International career. However, he could not stop India from going for a big score. Chasing a big target, the Kiwi team’s batting was disappointing and they lost wickets at frequent intervals. India have taken a 1-0 lead in the series after the first match was washed out.
