Team India batter Suryakumar Yadav went berserk during the second ODI against Australia on Sunday, September 22 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. He lighted up the stadium with four consecutive sixes off Cameron Green in the innings. His terrific batting performance entertained the fans.
The heroics happened in the forty-fourth over of the Indian innings. Suryakumar Yadav had survived a close stumping call in the previous over and was in no mood to let go of a great chance. He smacked the first delivery of Cameron Green’s over, which was a length ball around the middle and leg stump over a deep backward square leg for a six.
Suryakumar Yadav followed it up with a scoop over fine leg which went all the distance for six. Cameron Green tried to mix up his deliveries and went for a slower one on the third delivery. However, the Indian batter picked it up and lofted it over deep extra cover for another six. The onslaught did not end as Suryakumar Yadav slammed a fourth consecutive six over deep mid-wicket.

Suryakumar Yadav continued the tremendous striking as he quickly raced to his fifty in just 24 deliveries. He stayed unbeaten in the innings smashing 72 runs off 37 deliveries at a strike rate of 194.59. His knock was filled with six boundaries and as many sixes. This was his second consecutive fifty in the ongoing ODI series.
Indian batting roars together ahead of ODI World
Team India’s batting line-up is a great form ahead of the 2023 ICC ODI World Cup, which kicks off on October 5 in India. The second ODI against Australia has proved the prowess of India’s batting unit. The likes of Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav have shown good form in recent matches, which is a huge plus for the team.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s experience makes it a formidable batting unit. Shubman Gill is the leading run-scorer for India in ODIs this year, while KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli average more than fifty. The form of Indian batters ahead of the mega-event is a dangerous signal for the opposition teams.
