At the current T20 World Cup, Team India has been a dominant force, and middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav deserves a lot of credit for his outstanding performance. Suryakumar, who bats at position number four, has dazzled everyone with his diverse shot selection and ability to send the ball almost everywhere on the field. After Virat Kohli, he is now India’s second-highest run scorer in the competition with 225 runs at a strike rate of 193.97 from five innings.

The top-ranked T20I hitter talks about his strategy, which has everyone speechless. He supports his skills, which have helped him soar in the competition. “I’ve made more successful shots than unsuccessful ones when playing such strokes. The confidence to perform such strokes is thus quite great. In a video posted to, Suryakumar said to R Ashwin, “And I’ve been going out and just exploding.”

Suryakumar hasn’t played in Australia before, but he hasn’t had many problems, if any, adjusting to the bounce and tempo. The batter thinks the secret to it is plenty of practice at his home field in Mumbai, Wankhede, which has a similar environment. During the conversation, Suryakumar also shared a strategy for handling pressure from the opposition.

“Everyone has asked me the same question: ‘You’ve never been to Australia, where the tracks are bumpy, quick, and wide. How will your preparations be like?'” However, as I said, the bounce is the same when I practice at Wankhede, back home, even though the ground there is much smaller. I practice a lot there because they set up fantastic fast tracks for me, and I’ve always loved hitting at expansive fields when I’ve been here. Because I can see such large pockets and gaps, whether I’m under pressure or anything similar, I will run quickly. Therefore, I’ve always preferred batting on large grounds and wickets with bounce and fast tracks. So far, it hasn’t been an issue for me, and hopefully, I continue in that vein,” added the batter.

India, who have secured four wins out of the five matches they’ve played so far, will now lock horns with Jos Buttler’s England in the semifinal in Adelaide.
