Suryakumar Yadav becomes the second Indian batter to score two T20I centuries in a calendar year after Rohit Sharma in 2018.
Suryakumar had hit a sensational 48-ball century in a losing cause for India against England in the third Twenty20 international at Trent Bridge in July this year.
Suryakumar was the third-highest run-scorer in the recently concluded T20 World Cup in Australia with 239 runs in six innings at a brilliant strike rate of a shade under 190. He also went past 1000 runs in 2022 during his unbeaten 61 in the last group game of the T20 World Cup against Zimbabwe in Melbourne. The only other man to have scored 1000-plus T20I runs in a calendar year is Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan, who amassed 1326 in 2021.
