You Don’t See Surya Fielding In The Slips Often – Rajkumar Sharma
Speaking to India News, Rajkumar Sharma spoke about Suryakumar Yadav’s fielding. Rajkumar praised SKY and said that he is focused on the field too.
“You don’t see Surya fielding in the slips often. But because [Shubman] Gill wasn’t on the field, he was stationed there and pulled off two incredible catches. He timed his jump to perfection on both occasions and showed how agile he is. Even his third catch in the deep was great as he knew exactly where the boundary line was. This shows how focused he is on the field too,” Rajkumar Sharma said.
