New Delhi: In the second T20 match played between India and New Zealand, Suryakumar Yadav’s stormy century filled the nerves of cricket fans. Surya hit 11 fours and 7 sixes in 51 balls and scored an unbeaten 111 at a strike rate of over 217. This was his second century in T20 cricket. However, there was a time when it took a long time for Surya to make a place in Team India.

Despite performing brilliantly in domestic cricket, he was not able to make a place in Team India as most of the batsmen were performing better in the middle order. As soon as Surya got a place in Team India, he surprised with his quick performance. The 32-year-old Surya made his T20I debut against England in March last year and in a short span of time he has not only become the No. 1 batsman in the world but also the No. 1 run-scorer this year.

there was frustration at that time

After this innings, Surya remembered his old days in the press conference. Surya said that I always remember the past because when I stay in the room or travel with my wife, we talk about the situation two-three years back. What has changed now?

Surya further said – There was frustration at that time, but I used to see what positive I could extract from it. How can I become a batsman cricketer or how can I go one step further. After that time I tried doing different things. Eating good food, doing quality practice and sleeping on time. Surya said- I used to do this even before that, but could not do it with quality. So my wife and I talked about it a lot. After that things changed completely. I am eating the fruits of doing those things today.

This statement given on Virat’s compliment

Virat Kohli has also given a compliment to Surya. He said- I enjoy batting with him a lot. There is a lot of running with him because his fitness is tremendous. Surya said- When we are inside, we do not talk much about the game. We respect each other about our respective games.

I always tell them one thing that you keep batting from one side and I will keep playing from the other side. I will take what he has said about batting like a video game today as a compliment and will try to improve my performance further.
