I’m Enjoying Batting This Way: Suryakumar Yadav On His 111-Run Knock

Mount Maunganui [New Zealand]: After India registered a commanding win over New Zealand, ‘Man of the Match’ Suryakumar Yadav expressed his happiness with the way he’s batting at the moment.

Suryakumar carried his rich vein of form forward as he slammed the second hundred of his T20I career during the second T20I of the three-match series against New Zealand in Mount Maunganui on Sunday. With this win, Team India have gained a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Suryakumar’s batting masterclass of unbeaten 111 and Deepak Hooda’s four-wicket haul helped India bundle out New Zealand for 126 runs to clinch the second match by 65 runs in the three-match T20I series here at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Sunday.

“The plan was clear when I went into bat. At the 12th/13th over, we thought about batting deep and getting around 170-175 was a par score. Secret (behind his freak shots) is about the intent and you need to enjoy yourself. I’m enjoying batting this way, I’ve been doing the same thing in the nets, all practice sessions and going out [to the middle], all these things happening, I’m very happy with that,” Suryakumar said in a post-match presentation.

“It’s also about the work you do in the practice sessions. It’s a great feeling coming here, having a full game and going 1-0 in the series feels good. I feel that I didn’t think too much about what was happening. Just had my game plan and it worked well. Fantastic crowd here,” he added.

Suryakumar took just 49 balls to bring up his ton in the penultimate over of India’s innings. He smashed a four and a six after that but couldn’t get a strike in the final over as India managed a total of 191/6 in 20 overs. Yadav remained unbeaten on 111 from 51 deliveries, an innings consisting of 11 fours and seven huge sixes.
