I Try & Express Myself As Much As Possible: Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav scored a blazing century (112* off 51), and helped India to a 91-run victory against Sri Lanka at Rajkot on January 7. After the match, Suryakumar spoke to India head coach Rahul Dravid about several aspects of his game.

When Dravid asked Suryakumar to pick the best T20I innings he has played, the right-hand batter said it is difficult to pick one.

“I enjoyed batting in all the difficult situations. I can’t pick any one inning. It is actually difficult to pick one, I just enjoyed myself. I am just doing the same things that I did last year. I have said before as well, I just try and enjoy when I go in to bat, and express myself as much as possible. In those difficult situations when other teams try and take the game off, I try and take them on. If it works well for me and the team, I am happy,” said Suryakumar to Dravid in a video on BCCI.tv.

Suryakumar also added that there are occasions when he plays a pre-determined shot. “Obviously this format you have to be a little bit pre-determined at the same time you got to have another stroke as well. If the bowler is a step ahead of you during that time, but yes I try and play the field what fielders are in, what the bowler can bowl at that time and it works out.”

The head coach then went on to ask Suryakumar whether he practises the incredible shots he plays in a T20I match during training as well. To which Suryakumar said: “Absolutely I mean during the net sessions I try and hear the sound of the bat. If I am meeting the ball really well or I mean I try and set the field for myself whenever any left-arm spinner or leg-spinner or fast bowler is bowling and just try and time the ball as much as possible. And hearing the sound of the bat, if I am happy on that day even if it happens for 10 minutes I am happy when I come out of it.”
