Obviously, Everyone Dreams Of Playing For India: Suryakumar Yadav

“It has been worth the wait, and I’m really happy about it. From here on, how I build it is all in my hands. I’m really excited for the journey ahead.”
“I’ve always been batting the same way as I am now. But yes, after I came to Mumbai Indians in 2018, things started changing a bit. I got to know what my responsibility is, how do I go about my game, how can I take it one step ahead. That’s when I started practicing even more.

“Really disappointed with that. In the third game too, there was a good opportunity today to hold one end and try and play till the end but couldn’t do it. That’s two things I’m really keeping in mind, how do I build from here? But that’s how you learn and move forward”, he concluded.
