During the recent World Cup match between India and the Netherlands, Suryakumar Yadav provided a hilarious moment that left everyone amused. Despite India’s outstanding performance, the players found a way to entertain themselves on the field.
In the final group game, India demonstrated their formidable batting prowess, scoring a massive 410 in the first innings, the second-highest in the country’s World Cup history. While the Indian bowlers were expected to dominate, the Netherlands surprisingly put up a decent fight.
The comical incident took place in the eighth over when Mohammed Shami offered some width to Colin Ackermann, who seized the opportunity and hit the ball through cover point. Suryakumar Yadav, attempting to field the ball, made it look more challenging than it was. Despite sliding too early and appearing to miss the ball, the slow pace allowed SKY to improvise – he decided to “swim” on the grass to reach the ball, ultimately saving a run for his team.
The sight of Suryakumar’s unique fielding technique caught the attention of Twitterati and even Virat Kohli, who was seen chuckling on the field. Social media exploded with reactions as fans couldn’t resist poking fun at the Indian international.
In summary, Suryakumar Yadav’s freestyle “swim” to save a boundary added a humorous touch to the match, providing a light-hearted moment that both players and fans enjoyed.
