Reputation of explosive Indian basman Suryakumar Yadav as a T20 player seems to be increasing with each passing day.

International Cricket Council (ICC) recently used a poster loosely based on the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Top-Gun’ starring Tom Cruise to help spike the interest of the cricket buffs for the much-awaited high-octane clash between India and Pakistan at MCG. 

On the poster, ICC used the image of No.2 ranked T20I batter, Suryakumar Yadav. “Suryakumar Yadav: SKY Is The Limit,” ICC wrote on the poster.

“Top-Gunning it. Will SKY pilot India to victory in #T20WorldCup 2022?” the tweet by ICC read.

The post on Twitter has now gone viral garnering more than 38,000 likes and 3,600 retweets.

Surya with a 360 degree approach has been in brilliant form in the shortest format of the game this year. He has emerged as one of the prolific batters all around the world.

The likes of Kane Richardson, Ricky Ponting and Wayne Parnell have drubbed Suryakumar as one of the best T20 batters across the globe.

Team India will depend a lot on Surya’s form to make any impression in the mega event.
