IND vs ENG: Rohit Sharma’s decade-old tweet for Suryakumar Yadav goes viral | locust
Suryakumar Yadav’s innings featured 14 fours and 6 highs but after his dismissal India could only manage 198/9 in response to England’s 215/7.
Heading into the T20 World Cup, mid-tier hitter Suryakumar Yadav has most likely cemented his place in India’s squad for the showpiece event after smashing a 117 from 55 in the third T20I against England , which the Men in Blue lost by 17 short. Suryakumar came on in the middle when India were shocked at 13/2 in 2.4 overs and needed over 200 more to win from the remaining overs.
Shortly after his arrival, India lost another key wicket in the form of Rohit Sharma, reducing India to 31-3 in 5 overs. However, things turned around as Suryakumar and Shreyas Iyer went to add 119 runs for the fourth wicket in the next 10 and kept India in the chase until the penultimate.

“Just finished BCCI awards here in Chennai..some exciting cricketers ahead..Suryakumar yadav from Mumbai to watch in the future!” the tweet said.
Apart from the national team, Rohit and Suryakumar play for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
