Indian cricket player Suryakumar Yadav breaks Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell’s record by becoming the third fastest Indian batter to hit 1000 runs in 567 balls.

Suryakumar achieved the half-century mark in just 18 balls, giving Team India the joint-second-fastest half-century in T20 international cricket.

Yadav surpassed the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Colin Munro, Evin Lewis, and Thisara Perera. Glenn Maxwell had scored 1000 runs in 607 balls making it a record that has now been broken by Indian star batsman Suryakumar Yadav.

Suryakumar Yadav reached this wonderful milestone during the second T20I match against South Africa at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on Sunday.

Yadav scored 61 runs off 22 balls where he smashed 5 fours and 5 sixes.

It’s never easy to knock enormous sixes, but the right-handed batter has demonstrated that he has power. Now, it won’t be inaccurate to state that the batter has become an important part of Indian cricket. The team and the management can now rely upon Surya to score runs in crucial moments, which is a huge comfort considering how much the squad previously depended on Virat Kohli. Though Virat Kohli remains the fastest Indian batsman to reach 1000 runs in T20Is, it only took 27 innings for him to achieve such a milestone. KL Rahul is among the record holders with the fastest 1000 runs in 29 innings, whereas, Suryakumar Yadav is placed in the 9th position joining the legendary league of batsmen like Kohli, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Shikhar Dhawan, and Suresh Raina.
