Suryakumar Yadav’s extraordinary display of batting saw him launch four consecutive sixes off Cameron Green during the 44th over of India’s innings in the 2nd ODI against Australia.

In the second One-Day International at Indore’s Holkar Cricket Stadium, India’s Suryakumar Yadav showcased his might by dispatching four consecutive sixes off Australia’s Cameron Green. This stunning assault left Green grappling, as he conceded 26 runs in the 44th over, with Yadav effortlessly clearing the boundary on each of the first four deliveries.

Cameron Green faced a daunting return to the bowling crease after conceding 62 runs in his initial seven overs. Suryakumar Yadav, however, welcomed him with a relentless barrage of boundaries. He initiated his assault with a powerful flick off a length delivery, sending it sailing over the long-leg boundary.

The following delivery saw him expertly scoop the ball over fine leg for his second six. Then, SKY exhibited exquisite wristwork, lofting a full delivery over covers and following it up with a whip over deep midwicket.

Although Green managed to break the rhythm with a wide delivery, Suryakumar’s 24-ball half-century set a new record as the quickest by an Indian against Australia in one-day cricket.

Suryakumar’s explosive innings, complemented by KL Rahul’s half-century and centuries from Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer, propelled India to a colossal total of 399/5. Notably, Cameron Green, Suryakumar’s Mumbai Indians teammate in the IPL, endured a poor outing as the most expensive Australian bowler, giving away 103 runs in his 10-over spell. This formidable total marked India’s highest ever in ODIs against Australia.
