3. Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav hogged the limelight with his consistent performances in the IPL over the years. He gained fame after he started to play shots all over the park for Kolkata Knight Riders. After he moved to Mumbai Indians, he started performing well consistently.
Fans started to term him as “Indian AB de Villiers” because of his style of play. The 30-year-old eventually earned an opportunity to don the Indian outfit. He made his debut against England in the T20I. Sky grabbed his opportunity in both hands firmly by scoring a fifty on his debut.
He has played 8 T20Is where he composed 181 runs at a superb batting average of 45.25 and a strike rate of 163.06. Since there is no Virat Kohli for the T20I series against New Zealand, Suryakumar might take up the coveted No.3 spot.
