India’s star batsman Suryakumar Yadav produced a brilliant performance against South Africa in the T20 World Cup on a day when no other player could deliver.

After the innings, former India all-rounder Gautam Gambhir made a grand remark about Suryakumar’s innings, claiming it was the best T20 innings he had “ever seen”.

“He took us to 133. I have seen many innings in the past. People are hundreds for India, hundreds for him. Couldn’t be better than that. It couldn’t be more difficult. Is it the situation or the bowling. When he came in to bat, India were 50/5 (26/2) and if you can get 40 off 60 on a wicket like that…I haven’t seen a better T20 innings, to be honest,” Gambhir said. Star Sports.

“Yes, you can talk about hundreds and other things, but it doesn’t get any better than that. For me, this is the best T20 innings ever played by an Indian,” Gambhir said.

For South Africa, Lungi Ngidi was the pick of the bowlers as he took four wickets, including India’s top-3 of Rohit, Rahul and Kohli. And Wayne Parnell chose three.
