Suryakumar Yadav is currently at his best. He is enjoying every match he plays for Team India. In the recent triumph over South Africa, India have excelled their power in the field of Batting, while the bowling department looked decent. All the fiery batting knocks from Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav and the finishing abilities of Dinesh Karthik looked promising just before the World T20 Cup.

There is no doubt that Suryakumar Yadav is a great search in terms of a modern T20 Player. He bats beautifully and he also possesses an ample variety of shots along the ground. Surya batted extremely well in the series against South Africa. He scored 119 runs averaging around 59 with a great striking rate of 195. The stats themselves define the hitting abilities of Surya.

The battle to be the No.1 ranked T20I batter in the world has further intensified after Indian Batting star Suryakumar Yadav edged even closer to Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan on the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Player Rankings.

Rizwan finished the recent seven-match T20I series against England as the leading run scorer with an impressive haul of 316 runs, but the fact the veteran was rested for the sixth game of the series and managed just one in the series decider in Lahore meant the right-hander lost valuable breathing space at the top of the rankings.

The race for the top spot is so tight that Yadav could have even overtaken his Pakistan counterpart with a big score in the final match of India’s series against South Africa in Indore, but the right-hander was out for just eight.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam remains third on the latest T20I batter rankings and should not be discounted from re-claiming his place at the top, while a host of other batters from around the world made giant strides on the latest set of rankings.

India opener KL Rahul jumps seven spots to 14th on the updated list on the back of his 108 runs from two matches against the Proteas, while South Africa trio Quinton de Kock (up eight spots to 12th), Rilee Rossouw (up 23 places to 20th) and David Miller (up 10 spots to 29th) were also eye-catching movers.

A reliable top-order performer Dawid Malan rises one spot to fifth after a consistent series for England against Pakistan, with team-mate Ben Duckett (up eight spots to equal 24th) also on the improve.
