Aaron Hardie Takes Screamer To Dismiss Suryakumar Yadav

Australia National Cricket Team all-rounder Aaron Hardie took a fantastic catch to remove the India National Cricket Team captain Suryakumar Yadav in the first T20I of the five-match series on Thursday, November 23, at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam.

Suryakumar Yadav was facing heavy criticism for his performance in the recently concluded World Cup at home. He was particularly slammed by fans for his poor innings in the final.

However, as the format switched, Suryakumar Yadav showed his true potential. The No.1 ranked T20I batsman played a wonderful knock and helped his team win the match. He smashed 80 runs off 42 balls, with 9 fours and 4 sixes, before being dismissed by Jason Behrendorff.

On the 4th ball of the 18th over, the pacer bowled a slower delivery that was pitched on a fuller length outside off-stump. Suryakumar Yadav tried to smash the ball down the ground but wasn’t able to get a good connection with the ball.

The ball went way up in the air and it looked quite difficult to grab. However, Aaron Hardie sprinted back from mid-on, kept his eyes on the ball, and then completed a stunning catch.

Very happy with the way the boys played – Suryakumar Yadav

Speaking after India’s two-wicket win Suryakumar Yadav expressed his satisfaction over the performance of the players. He said:

“Very happy with the way the boys played. Was very happy with their energy, we were put under pressure but the way everyone showed up was amazing.”

Suryakumar Yadav added that he is really proud to get the opportunity to captain India National Cricket Team. He also credited his bowlers for the win.

“It’s a proud moment, very proud moment, every time you play, you think about representing India but coming out here and captaining India is a big moment. Thought there will be a little bit of dew but there wasn’t. It isn’t a big ground and I knew batting will get easy. Thought they might get 230-235 but the bowlers did really well.”
