Said this on Virat
Suryakumar, a resident of Mumbai, praised Virat’s fitness after the victory. He said, ‘Recently we have played a few matches together. We both had a very good partnership. I really enjoy batting with him. Yes but there is one thing that one has to run a lot while batting with him because he is so super fit. Actually, it is very difficult to match Virat in terms of running between the wickets and Surya also kept his point about this.
