As making his international debut against England in March 2021, Suryakumar Yadav had no symptoms of nerves when he hammered Jofra Archer over fine-leg for a first-ball six in a T20 match. On Wednesday, he will return to the same location as India’s vice-captain for the T20 series finale against New Zealand.

Yadav will enter the field at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad with his reputation as the bowling attack killer unlike any other having skyrocketed since his debut.

The ICC T20 Player-of-the-Year stated, “It feels fantastic,” during a press conference on Tuesday. “When I entered the changing room, I informed our manager that I had returned to the original location. I was silently descending the stairs while reflecting on my wonderful recollections of 2021. It will be entirely different this time. A fantastic audience is anticipated at the stunning stadium.

An exceptionally low number of goals have been scored in this series since no stroke player has been able to overcome rank turners in Ranchi and Lucknow. Instead of the spectacular batting that is typical in T20s, the topic of playing surfaces has received greater attention.

Pitches have dominated the conversation in the level 1-1 series since it is risk India’s reputation for easily winning bilateral matches at home. After calling the match “a shocker,” Indian captain Hardik Pandya ordered the removal of the Lucknow curator.

Yadav wanted to proceed. “We took action within our power. It was a fun game, but we had to work hard and adapt. The outcome of the wicket shouldn’t matter if the game is close. You visit, encounter a difficulty, accept it, and continue. It ought to be seen as a challenge.

Ahmedabad’s remodeled stadium is known for producing big scores.

In Lucknow, Pandya and Yadav helped India win the match with one ball remaining despite the difficulty of chasing a modest 100-point goal. Due to the absence of both the series’ captain Rohit Sharma and his deputy KL Rahul, the duo is taking on the role of middle-over. “We’ve had successful relationships when batting together for a very long time. At Lucknow, we were attempting to support one another and have a wonderful time.

Yadav is also anticipating the possibility of making his Test debut in the series against Australia that gets underway on February 9. However, the batter wanted to remain in the present and concentrate on the last T20.

Everyone likes to play cricket, so test it out. You only use red balls when you first start playing domestic cricket, the speaker remarked. “Excitement is present. We are all aware of how thrilling the series will be. You want to live in the now, which we all agree is what ultimately matters. There will be plenty of time to consider it after that.
