'SKY is my dad': Cameron Green's old video goes viral after Suryakumar Yadav's destructive knock against Australia

'SKY is my dad': Cameron Green's old video goes viral after Suryakumar Yadav's destructive knock against Australia

Suryakumar Yadav, popularly known as SKY, was at his best, striking six 6s and six 4s while scoring a devastating 72 in just 37 balls at a strike rate of 194.59, leading India to 399/5 runs.

In the second ODI match between India and Australia at Holkar Stadium in Indore on September 24, Suryakumar Yadav's devastating knocking display led the team to a massive total of 399/5. Shubman Gill, the opening batsman for India, and Shreyas Iyer, the first wicket, gave the team the ideal start.

Suryakumar Yadav, also referred to as "SKY," was at his finest when he struck six sixes and six fours, amassing an incredible 72 runs in just 37 balls at a strike rate of 184.59.
SKY developed a particular like for his Mumbai Indians teammate Cameron Green, who ended with statistics of 2/103 in 10 overs, despite facing Australian bowlers who were in total control. Even in the first four deliveries off his bowling, SKY smashed four sixes.

Following SKY's stunning knock, a vintage video of Suryakumar and Green from their Indian Premier League (IPL) days went popular on social media. A joke about "If you're bad, SKY is my dad" is heard in the video, which made the Indian batter cry.

In the meanwhile, Australia decided to bowl first after winning the toss. It did not, however, work out in its favour. Despite losing Rituraj Gaikwad to Josh Hazlewood in the fourth over, India's Gill and Iyer carried their innings to the end, surpassing the 200-run threshold by 30 overs.

Along with Iyer (105 off 90 balls), Gill (104 off 97 balls) extended his incredible run with his sixth century of the year in One-Day Internationals.

Ishan Kishan (31 off 18 balls) and captain KL Rahil (52 off 38 balls) then carried on the pace. However, it was SKY (72 not out off 37 balls) who provided his supporters the biggest burst of excitement. India gave up 103 runs in the final ten overs, making it their highest-ever total in one-day internationals against Australia.

Earlier in the year, India defeated the visitors with a match-winning 395 against New Zealand.

The Australian team, however, looked to be having trouble scoring 400 runs in 300 balls after they lost two wickets in rapid succession to India's Prasidh Krishna. Afterwards, wickets fell one after the other like a pack of cards. None of the other batters could hold their own for very long, save from David Warner (53 off 39 balls).

Ravindra Jadeja and Prasidh Krishna each claimed two wickets, while Ravichandran Ashwin claimed three for India. Prior to the report's filing, Australia's score in 25 overs was 188/8. By D/L, they have to score 129 runs in 48 balls to win.
