Rohit Sharma Applauds Suryakumar Yadav for His Swashbuckling Knock

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma shared his happiness after his team’s victory in their recent match against Rajasthan Royals at Abu Dhabi on Tuesday (October 6) in the ongoing season of IPL.

“We strive to be out there and play well. We have a lot of quality and it’s about getting the job done. They all have a lot of confidence,” Rohit Sharma said after the game. “They’re all talented and they can take the game away on their day and it’s all falling into place. The conditions are helpful here for the quick bowlers.”

“It was nipping around to start with and it’s good to have bowlers who can exploit the conditions. We also worked a lot on our fielding, because it’s one of the controllables in the game and we made it a point to do that well,” he further added.

Rohit Sharma also praised his key player Suryakumar Yadav, who smashed an unbeaten 79 to help his side post a decent competitive total of 193-4 in the first innings. He also said that he felt a great knock is coming from Yadav and he even told that to him before the game.

Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav, who won the ‘Player of the Match’ award, said that he had worked hard on improving his game during the lockdown imposed by the global pandemic novel coronavirus, which brought the entire world since mid-March.

Yadav further added that he wanted to play till the end and team’s winning is really satisfying. Notably, after his knock, bowlers did their job and sealed the deal.

“I felt it (a big knock) was coming in this game, because in the last few games I was finding ways to get out. This time I just wanted to bat till the end. Loving the added responsibility at the top of the order, and I’ve just been told to play my game and express myself and I did just that. The lockdown helped me with my off-side game rather than just my leg-side pick-up shot,” he told.
