Surya and Venkatesh reveal India's innovative T20 strategy.

We have one more opportunity today, “Aaj ek aur opportunity hai.”

Suryakumar Yadav has only played 21 innings for foreign teams. Only eight games have been played by Venkatesh Iyer. When Rohit Sharma fought his way to 7 off 15 before being bowled by Dominic Drakes, Suryakumar was at the opposite end. India was in a critical position at 93 for 4 in 13.5 overs. India were just where West Indies intended them to be, Kieron Pollard would later admit.

If time had been different, India’s batters would have attempted to build up before launching toward the end. Iyer and Suryakumar took advantage of the “opportunity” after spotting it. Carnage and a partnership of 91 off 37 resulted from what came next.

Suryakumar, who opened the game by demonstrating his diversity of skills, has more sixes in a T20I than anyone else (KL Rahul has eight and Rohit Sharma has ten). However, the strike was expected. Making money off of fatalities was one of the many boxes India checked.


Iyer and Suryakumar helped India easily win the first T20I by scoring 42 runs in 4.5 overs. India made 62 in the final five shots of the second game, with Iyer and Rishabh Pant leading the charge. Iyer is “someone who reads the situation really well,” Pant had said of his stance with the left-hander.Our key topic was keeping things straightforward.
