‘He is not a robot..’ – Fans hit back at Former Indian cricketer for calling Suryakumar Yadav a choker

The 32-year-old World number one T20I batter ended up as the third highest-run scorer in the eighth edition of the 20-20 World Cup.

Former Indian batter Wasim Jaffer, who is known for his blunt opinions in cricket, be it about any team or any individual player is now on the receiving end of the hard trolls and criticism from some Indian cricket fans. Recently, Jaffer went on to criticize the star Indian batting sensation, Suryakumar Yadav.

“Surykumar could not perform when we needed him the most,” said Jaffer to CricTracker while he was analyzing the performance of the Indian team in the second semi-final against England.

These comments from the Mumbai veteran didn’t go down well with some of the Indian fans and they took no time in lashing out at the former domestic cricket legend. They took to Twitter for recalling the contributions of SKY to Wasim Jaffer.

Here’s how fans reacted to Jaffer’s comments on Suryakumar Yadav

Speaking of Suryakumar Yadav’s performance in the eighth edition of the 20-20 World Cup, he smashed 239 runs in the six innings with a brilliant average of 59.75 having three half-centuries to his name. Notably, the 32-year-old batter also stood strong when the entire Indian batting line-up collapsed against South Africa in a super-12 match.

Unfortunately, the Mumbai batter could score only 14 runs in the second semi-final against England and fell prey to Adil Rashid.

Talking about the match against England, the English opening pair of skipper Jos Buttler and senior batter Alex Hales completely outmuscled the Indian bowling line-up including the likes of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Arshdeep Singh. The English duo comfortably chased down the target of 169 runs only in 16 overs to enter the final of the tournament in a convincing style.
