Team India batter Suryakumar Yadav has been going great guns for the team in white-ball cricket. He is known for his ability to adapt to various situations and bat in different gears. His ‘360-degree’ innovative batting style is a sight to watch in world cricket. The right-handed batter gave a glimpse of his batting talent with an audacious helicopter shot on Saturday leaving the fans and the experts stunned.

Suryakumar Yadav opened the innings for India in the fourth T20I against West Indies in Lauderhill, Florida. He got India off to a flying start along with skipper Rohit Sharma. In the third over, the openers slammed Obed McCoy for 25 runs, smashing three sixes and a four. However, Suryakumar Yadav’s six off the third delivery impressed the fans the most.

The right-handed batter picked up Obed McCoy’s fullish delivery early. He got across the crease slightly and flicked the ball beautifully in his trademark style over mid-wicket, giving the bat a twirl and making the shot more elegant. It went over the boundary ropes for a six.

Suryakumar Yadav played a fine hand of 24 runs, including a boundary and two sixes before getting dismissed. So far, he is the leading run-scorer in the series, scoring 135 runs in four innings at an average of 33.75. The 31-year-old was the Player of the Match in the third T20I for India, as his 76 runs powered them to a seven-wicket win.
