Mumbai Indians’ star batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been going from strength to strength with every passing IPL tournament. Suryakumar Yadav has been the bedrock of Mumbai Indians’ batting line-up, having the ability to play explosively and in a level-headed fashion. The 30-year old revealed to enjoy his batting at present.
Mumbai Indians are comfortably placed at the top of the IPL 2020 points table with nine wins in 13 games. With 374 runs in 13 fixtures, Suryakumar Yadav is the third-highest run-getter for the franchise and scored at 41, having clattered three half-centuries. In the last two editions as well, the right-handed batsman mustered 512 and 424 runs respectively.
Suryakumar Yadav highlighted to enjoy his batting quite a lot and it was that way since the start of the competition. At the same time, he felt he kept losing track when it was time to post big scores, throwing his wicket away.
“Currently, I am really enjoying my batting. Since the start of the tournament, I feel I was batting really well, in the practice games as well. In the first few games, I think I actually lost a little bit of track. I was gifting my wicket away I felt,” Yadav told in a video posted by Mumbai Indians’ official Twitter account.
The 30-year old went back to the drawing board to spend some time on improving himself while also practising in his hotel room. Yadav wanted to upgrade the art of constructing his innings and bat deep.
“So then I thought I will go inside and spend some more time on my batting. Even when I used to come and used to practice, back in the hotel room, I would be thinking about my batting and how do I construct it from the beginning,” he mentioned.
“I hope I can carry it into the next game and the playoffs as well” : Suryakumar Yadav
In the second half of the tournament, Suryakumar Yadav focussed on taking his innings as deep as possible, facilitating himself and the team. In this way, Yadav seem to enjoy his batting and is looking forward to the next game apart and the playoffs too. Mumbai Indians will take on SunRisers Hyderabad in Sharjah on Tuesday in what would be the final league game of IPL 2020. With nothing less than a victory needed for the SunRisers, they will come hard at the defending champions.
“In the latter part of the tournament, I thought the deeper I bat, the easier it will become for me as well as the team. Also I can make a good platform for other players to finish the game. I am really enjoying how I am batting right now and looking forward to the next game. I am really enjoying my batting and I hope I can carry it into the next game and the playoffs as well,” the 30-year old added.
