Team India Head coach Rahul Dravid said Suryakumar Yadav is earning rewards for his hard work on and off the field. Suryakumar was in exceptional shape with bats in the ongoing T20 Globalism A trophy where he scored 225 points in 5 matches with an impressive average of 75. He played a pivotal role along with Virat Kohli India’s qualifiers for the semi-finals of the mega international cricket tournament.
The brilliant batsman scored 61 unbeaten 25 balls which were tied to six and four six balls. The No. 1 hitter of the ICC seeded T20I showed his class against the Zimbabwe bowling lineup as he knocked them out in the last five times to help India spread 186/5 in 20 overs. Which turned out to be too much for the opposition.
Dravid praised Suryakumar and pointed out why he is the best in the shortest form at the moment.
“It’s unbelievable. That’s why he’s the number one T20 player in the world right now because of that consistency in a format where it’s hard to score goals with the hit rate he’s doing. It’s not easy to be consistent with the kind of hit rate he’s scoring,” he said. Dravid in the post-match presentation, it’s totally cool with the way he’s playing.
The former India captain spoke about how much hard work Suryakumar is doing off the field.
“I think he’s been very clear about his operations, he’s very clear about his tactics. I think he’s worked hard. I think one of the things about Surya is the amount of hard work he put in, in the nets thinking about his game, his fitness. I mean, if you look at Syria two years ago. , just to see how he takes care of his body and how much time he spends getting fit.”
The legendary cricketer said it was a pleasure to watch Surya bat earn the rewards he put on and off the field for success.
“I think he just earns the rewards for a lot of the hard work he put in on and off the field, and it could go on for a long time. I think it was very exceptional for us, it’s just a joy to watch. It’s a pleasure to watch him hit when he’s on the field,” Dravid said. This kind of shape.
The coach also talked about how difficult a tournament like the T20 World Cup can be, where one or two matches out of the game can end the journey of a strong team.
“Yeah, it was a tough form. It’s a challenging tournament when you have six teams and it’s only one or two results as we’ve seen with some of the other teams. And I think with us too I think one or two results could have gone the other way. We could have won. With some precaution, winning a few games as well, so, yeah, that’s a really tough shape to be able to get into the top four. They’re obviously nice and we’re happy with that, but obviously we know that, hopefully we’ll have two good days in us as we go. forward,” added Dravid.
