In the second match of the three-match T20 series against New Zealand, Suryakumar Yadav came out to bat at number 3 in place of Indian team great batsman Virat Kohli. Surya, batting brilliantly at number 3, hit a stormy century. This century innings of Surya was called by Virat Kohli as a video game innings. The reaction of Suryakumar Yadav has also been seen on this.
On Surya’s ton, Virat Kohli tweeted, “Numero Uno showing why he is the best in the world. Didn’t see it live, but I bet it was another video game knock of his.” On this Suryakumar Yadav was asked in the press conference after the match, he said that I will take it as a compliment and will try how to do better.
He said, “Recently we have played a few games together, have had a very good partnership. I enjoy batting with him. One thing is, he has to run a lot because he is so super fit. When We don’t talk much about the game when we are on the field together. We respect each other, everyone knows about their game, who plays like that, so they don’t talk much. I also don’t speak much, I just tell them one thing that you keep playing from one side, then I will keep batting on one side.”
