World No 1 T20 batter Suryakumar Yadav slammed a fiery ton in the 2nd T20I vs New Zealand at Mount Maunganui on Sunday (November 20) with plenty of Indian fans in the stadium to watch the masterful knock. Surya came in to bat in the 6th over and took charge from the word go. His century came off 49 balls that included 11 fours and 7 sixes. In the end he finished with 111 off 51 balls that came at the strike rate of 217. 65. The fiery knock took India’s total to 1191/6 at the end of 20 overs. They could have got more than 200 had Tim Southee not taken a hattrick in the 20th over.
Check out some records Surya surpassed in the process:

Take a look at reactions after Suyrakumar Yadav’s 100:

— Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) November 20, 2022
Southee came in the last over to bowl the last ball and he picked up a hattrick, dismissing Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda and Washington Sunday off successive deliveries. Had he not taken that hatttrick, the Indian total might have crossed the 200-run mark. Surya did not get the strike for most ball of the over and hence India had to finish with 191/6.
