Suryakumar Yadav, India's T20 skipper delivered a batting masterclass, hammering a magnificent century in the decisive 3rd and Final T20I against South Africa. This stellar innings not only showcased Yadav's exceptional skills but also played a pivotal role in shaping India's performance in the series. Join us in celebrating the brilliance of Suryakumar Yadav as he leaves an indelible mark on the cricketing landscape with a remarkable century.

India initiated their innings with a commendable start as Jaiswal and Gill swiftly accumulated 29 runs for the opening wicket. The third over witnessed the introduction of Maharaj, who wreaked havoc in the Indian camp by dismissing Gill and Tilak Varma in consecutive balls.

The momentum shifted as Suryakumar Yadav and Jaiswal showcased their batting prowess, crafting a formidable partnership of 112 runs for the third wicket. Both batsmen notched swashbuckling fifties, adding flair to the proceedings. However, Tabraiz Shamsi intervened, breaking the partnership by dismissing the southpaw in the 14th over.

Undeterred, Suryakumar Yadav continued his exceptional performance, contributing 47 runs for the 4th wicket alongside Rinku Singh. Yadav's stellar century, equalling the records of Rohit Sharma and Glenn Maxwell for four T20I centuries, further solidified India's position.

Towards the end, India faced a sudden collapse, potentially falling short of a par total on the compact, high-altitude ground. South Africa's Maharaj and Williams claimed two wickets each, while debutant Nandre Burger and Shamsi secured one wicket each.

As the innings concluded, India set a target of 201 for South Africa, laying the groundwork for an intriguing contest.
