The predicted top performer of the India VS West Indies 2022 2nd T20I:
Suryakumar Yadav is having a string of low scores off late. But that doesn’t mean he has lost his form. If we carefully look at the way he has given his wicket away, we can see that he has had an attacking approach. This was the change in mindset that Rohit Sharma had addressed before the beginning of the England Tour. So, Surya is just playing that brand of cricket. And as we all know, that game comes at the cost of a few low scores itself.
