Suryakumar Yadav's Century: A World Record Equal to Rohit Sharma and Glenn Maxwell

captain Suryakumar Yadav led from the front in the must-win 3rd T20I against South Africa in Johannesburg on Thursday, December 12, bringing up his 4th hundred in T20 international cricket. Suryakumar played a special knock under pressure as the stand-in skipper showcased why he is the No. 1-ranked batter in the International Cricket Council's T20I charts

T20I Excellence: Suryakumar Yadav Hits 4th Century, Equals Rohit Sharma and Glenn Maxwell

Suryakumar Yadav completed his 4th T20I hundred in just xx balls as he was in 6th gear from the word go at the New Wanderers Stadium. Suryakumar hit 8 sixes and 7 boundaries when he went past the 3-figure score in the 19th over of the Indian innings. 

Suryakumar Yadav equalled the world record for most T20I hundreds which was jointly held by Rohit Sharma and Glenn Maxwell. The Mumbai Indians batting star hit 2 hundreds last year and 2 more this year to catch up with two of the modern-day white-ball greats. Notably, Maxwell had equalled Rohit's record only last month during a T20I series against India in a sensational match-winning knock in Guwahati. 

Rohit got all his 4 T20I hundreds in a span of 4 years between 2015 to 2018. Maxwell's 4 hundreds stretch over a span of 8 years while Suryakumar has taken only two years in T20 international cricket to get to 4.
