Former India captain Virat Kohli interviews in-form Suryakumar Yadav after his scintillating innings against Hong Kong. In the match, Yadav smashed the Hong Kong bowlers and scored an unbeaten 68 in just 26 balls. Surya shared a match winning partnership of 98 runs with Virat. After the match, Kohli interviewed Yadav and talked about his aggressive innings and mindset.
During this, the former Indian captain asked about Surya’s plan for 6 sixes. Virat Kohli asked Suryakumar Yadav that if you hit 4 sixes in the last over, were you thinking that you can hit 6 sixes and become the second Indian batsman to do so? To this Suriya replied, “I was trying to give my best, but Yuvi couldn’t get close to Pa.”
Virat said about Yuvraj Singh’s 6 sixes that, “It was a magical over. It was great to be against Stuart Broad.” Let us tell you that Yuvraj Singh had hit 6 sixes in 6 consecutive balls in the T20 World Cup 2007 match. Apart from him, Kieron Pollard has also hit 6 sixes in T20 International cricket.
