Moeen Ali, an England all-rounder, praised India batter Suryakumar Yadav for his service to the ICC T20 World Cup ahead of his team's semifinal match against India.On Thursday, India and England will meet in the second semi-finals in Adelaide.He is a genius player, and I do think he is the best in the country.Ali was quoted by Sky Sports as saying that he has certainly taken T20 cricket to the next level.He has risen to the top of the ICC Mens T20I charts after his performances in recent matches.Suryakumar has scored 1,026 runs in 28 T20I innings this season at an average of 44.60 in five games so far.His baton has produced one hundred and nine half-centuries, with the highest score being 117.These runs have been launched at a strike rate of 186.24. Suryakumar's sheer speed and 360-degree hitting has captivated England this year.In the third T20I of the series played earlier this year, he scored his first T20I century, smashing English bowlers for 14 fours and six sixes in his knock of 117 off 55 balls, says Mohammed.They needed a lot of runs, and he got them close.He was thankfully weak when I took him home, though, and I think that's how I brought him. As a player, you want to achieve this.They will be the favorites to win.It is certainly the game we desire and need at this moment.Ali said that if we get through that, it will be a significant boost to our confidence.
