India captain Rohit Sharma said his “dugout can really be at ease” when Suryakumar Yadav is in the middle, playing astonishing shots. Suryakumar scored a magnificent 25-ball 61 not out as India crushed Zimbabwe by 71 runs to set up a semi-final date with England.
“The dugout can really be at ease when he bats, and he has shown a lot of composure while batting. We expected this from him, and he’s gone from strength to strength,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation.

“What SKY is doing for the team is remarkable, just coming out there, playing that way, taking the pressure off the others. We know his ability, and it allows the guy at the other end to take his time. It’s a good all-round performance, something we were looking for,” Rohit added.
India 186-5 in 20 overs (S Yadav 61*, KL Rahul 51; S Williams 2-9) beat Zimbabwe 115 in 17.2 overs (R Burl 35; R Ashwin 3-22, M Shami 2-14, H Pandya 2-16) by 71 runs
