Melbourne: Star Indian batter Suryakumar Yadav became the first Indian player to score 1,000 T20I runs in a calendar year on Sunday.

The batter attained this accomplishment during his team’s final Super 12 stage match at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) against Zimbabwe.

Suryakumar delivered the match’s perfect closing touches to ensure that India concluded his innings on a strong note. He hit six fours and four sixes in his 61* from just 25 balls. He was striking at a 244.00 strike rate.

Coming to India’s match against Zimbabwe, Men in Blue posted 186/5 in their 20 overs after opting to bat first.

KL Rahul (51) and Virat Kohli (26) put a 60 run stand for the second wicket, but Sean Williams (2/9) squeezed some momentum out of their innings. However, Suryakumar Yadav (61*) made sure things finished well for Men in Blue.
