Suryakumar Yadav surpassed Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni on this elite batting list

Suryakumar Yadav got the fifth place on this elite batting list after his quickfire 47 during IND vs NZ 1st T20I.

Team India suffered a 21-run defeat in the opening T20I of the three-match series against New Zealand on Friday after being restricted to 155/9 in the 177-run chase.

However, even as the result didn’t work out India’s way in the match, Suryakumar made a huge jump in the T20I run-getters’ list with his 34-ball 47 in the 1st T20I.

Suryakumar Yadav has now surpassed former India star Suresh Raina and legendary former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to become the fifth-highest run-getter in T20Is.

Take a look at India’s top run-getters in the format:

●     Virat Kohli – 4,008

●     Rohit Sharma – 3,853

●     KL Rahul – 2,265

●     Shikhar Dhawan – 1,759

●     Suryakumar Yadav – 1,625

●     MS Dhoni – 1,617

●     Suresh Raina – 1,605

NZ is now leading the 3 match T20I series by 1-0 and a win in the 2nd match on 29 January will ensure a series win. Hence, Team India will be looking to win the 2nd T20I at any cost.
