India batter Suryakumar Yadav became the sixth Indian to score a T20I hundred when he got to the three-figure mark in the third T20I against England on Sunday. Yadav smashed his maiden T20I century off a mere 48 balls against England at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
Surya also became the sixth Indian batter after Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Harmanpreet Kaur to score a century in T20Is. More than a decade ago, it was Raina who became the first Indian to hit a T20I century, after which Sharma and Rahul followed suit.
Earlier, Dawid Malan made a sublime 77 off 39 balls as England put India’s second-string attack to the sword to finish with a mammoth 215 for seven.
Opting to bat, skipper Jos Buttler (18 off 9 balls) and Jason Roy (27 off 26) helped England reach 52 for 1 in six overs. Malan and Liam Livingstone (42 not out off 29) then shared an entertaining 84-run partnership to set the platform for a massive total.
Having already sealed the series, India rested their frontline bowlers in Jasprit Bumrah, in-form Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal, besides star all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
