‘Sir, do chhakke fast bowler ko bhi maare…’: Suryakumar’s reply to journalist | Cricket

Suryakumar Yadav’s media interactions are as smooth and straightforward as his percussion. He always has a smile on his face that often turns into laughter during a press conference. Thursday was no different. Suryakumar Yadav’s only professional activity was addressing the press on the eve of the second T20I against Nagpur and he did it to perfection. After both India and Australia practice sessions were canceled due to rain and a wet field, Suryakumar spoke about his agility, Jasprit Bumrah’s condition and also how deceiving Harshal Patel’s slower ones really are.

The stylish right-hander also came up with a brilliant response when a journalist asked if he’s been given a specific role to attack the spinners, as he’s been doing successfully in the IPL for quite some time.

Sir, do chakke toh fast bowler ke to bhi maare toh thoda credit banta hai, kya bolte ho? (“I also hit two sixes against fast bowlers, so I should get a little credit for that, what are you saying?) he said giggling before adding that he is comfortable hitting in any position. “I’m very flexible, no specific role. Actually, I plan for every situation. I’m flexible to hit whatever number I get to bat, I know I just have to do my part and I’m happy to do it.”

Suryakumar had scored a 25-ball 46 in the opening game, which was dotted with two fours and four sixes. India, without Bumrah, delivered a shoddy performance as they failed to defend 208 in the series opener, with the pacers hitting 150 runs.

However, Suryakumar came in defense of the bowlers. “Actually, we didn’t have a discussion after the last game, but as you saw the day before, the game was long and there was also dew, and you also have to give them credit, they kept attacking, we try our best,” he said.

In his comeback match, Harshal Patel conceded 49 runs for no wicket, including a 22-run 18th over. Asked if Harshal’s variations are becoming predictable, Suryakumar said: “He’s very deceiving. I don’t play much in net sessions, but no matter how much I’ve played him and Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar) bhai is also hard to decipher…

“But Harshal’s slower balls and his different variations are really deceiving and he’s just coming from injury so so much benefit of the doubt should be given.”

On hitting, India’s aggressive approach paid off as KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav shot the team over the 200 mark after top hitters Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were ejected early.

“Assessing the pitch is very important. Everyone plays their part, they know their responsibilities and they know what to do in different situations. The openers know their role very well and then it comes down to how we should act.” the game of what they have to do, and it was well set up by the finishers, everything is going really well and we will try to do it over and over,” he said.
