Rohit Sharma Vs Suryakumar Yadav: When wife is with you…, know what answer Suryakumar gave to Rohit Sharma’s question
Suryakumar Yadav Interview: Referring to the best innings of his career, Suryakumar Yadav said that before that I had nets only for 15 minutes and came out. I told Paaji, now the batting will happen by going to the ground.
suryakumar yadav interview: Suryakumar Yadav has established himself in limited overs. Now he is eyeing a place in the Indian Test team. Suryakumar Yadav expressed this desire in an interview given to Indian Express. During the conversation, Suryakumar also shared an anecdote related to Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma once said that Suryakumar Yadav travels with too many suitcases. When asked if there is any reason behind this. Suryakumar Yadav starts laughing on hearing this. Suryakumar Yadav said, When my wife travels with me a few suitcases add up, especially when we are traveling abroad. It also depends on the weather (cold or hot). There are shoes for different outfits. Saying this, Suryakumar starts laughing again.
Sharing another anecdote, Suryakumar said that once when me and Virat Kohli were batting, he saw my shots and said to me, are you playing video games. Suryakumar said in the interview that he himself was surprised by some of the shots he played, how he played them. During this, Suryakumar also mentioned his best innings.
Suryakumar Yadav said that he has been playing such shots in domestic cricket and IPL. But in big tournaments like International Cricket or World Cup, it is very difficult to play such shots. It did so successfully, which surprised me a bit. The other day, I saw video of my batting in the last three months. After that I said to myself “Hey, yeh innings mein aise khel diya kaise khel diya? how did i do it I saw it on social media and it kept replaying on my timeline. So I kept watching all this.
Virat Kohli said – Are you playing video games? (Virat Kohli Said- Are you playing video games?)
Rohit Sharma has known me for a long time. He said in a few matches, I don’t want to say anything about you now. After this, once I was batting with Virat (Kohli) bhai, and he came and said to me “Tu video game khel raha hai kya? Yours is also going differently. Nice to hear these things.
Rahul Dravid expressed confidence
I also spoke to Rahul Dravid. When he saw these innings of mine, he came and told me that the way I bat, I can change the game. When he became India’s coach, I went and told him that when the game is going on between 7-14, then please send me for batting. I have batted many times for Mumbai Indians in that position. Rahul Dravid agreed with Suryakumar Yadav and said to play freely.
What do you like to do before batting? (What do you like to do before batting?)
Suryakumar Yadav said that before going to bat, I sit in the dugout and watch the whole game. I don’t watch TV. I like to warm up before going into bat. My effort is to run fast between the wickets and stretch myself as much as possible. Your body should be warm before batting, then you can go and score three runs in the very first ball.
Which was the most decisive innings of Suryakumar Yadav? (Which was the most defining knock of Suryakumar Yadav?)
I think the half-century against South Africa in Perth was the defining innings for me. It was the most challenging wicket I have faced so far. Before the match, I went to bat in the nets for 15 minutes and that’s where I got the feel of Perth. The practice pitches were fast. So I faced only 15 balls and told Vicky paaji (batting coach Vikram Rathour), now whatever batting is to be done will be done in the match.
When I went to bat, I told myself that this pitch is faster than I thought. So, when I switched to non-striker, I kept thinking what shots I could play as the pitch bounced a lot. When we were 49 for 5, we had nothing to lose. We could have been all out for 75, but I decided to take a positive approach.
Everyone is saying that you should be selected for Test cricket? ,Everyone is saying you should be picked for Test cricket now?,
I feel I am very close to making it into the Indian Test team. I have played this format. I have experience of red-ball cricket because we all start with red-ball cricket. Yes, the conditions are challenging but if you can set your mind and change your game, you can succeed.
