Suryakumar Yadav impressed everyone with his blistering form in the 2022 T20 World Cup. In six matches, the right-handed batter smashed a whopping total of 239 runs at a strike rate of 189.68. Even though Team India had a disappointing end, a 10-wicket loss to England in the semi-final, to their T20 World Cup campaign, Suryakumar emerged as one of the major positives for the Rohit Sharma-led side. As Team India bowed out of the ICC mega event, they now gear up for the upcoming three-match T20I and ODI series against New Zealand from November 18.
Suryakumar took to Twitter and wrote, ” Hello Wellington”, which showed his excitement for the white-ball series against the Kiwis, as the first clash of the T20Is will be played in Wellington. However, the story took a hilarious turn when Australia spinner Amanda Wellington wrote “Hello Yadav” in reply.
