Suryakumar Yadav: Cricket Journey

My salute to those who win by themselves. Suryakumar Yadav says that no food was eaten in 2 days and neither training could be done. I just kept walking by the seashore. Indian team was announced on 26 October, in which the selector forgot to mention Suryakumar yadav, even after 3 years of excellent performance, Suryakumar Yadav did not get a chance in the team, he says that at that time he did not understand what to do.

Then on October 28 against RCB, I got relief when I scored runs. After the match, the head coach of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri tweeted “Surya Namaskar and keep Patient”. Then the next day Sachin Tendulkar’s message came and Sachin Tendulkar writes that My coach Ramakant Achrekar used to say clearly that if you are honest and true to the game then the game will take care of you.

Sachin further wrote this is your final hurdle. Your dream of playing in the national team will definitely come true, so focus on yourself and keep practicing. Suryakumar Yadav says that Sachin Tendulkar had made it all clear to me in a single message that what I have to do.

After that I kept looking for chances to score runs. Suryakumar Yadav was playing with the legendary players from day one. In 2010, when Surya Kumar Yadav made his Ranji debut for Mumbai, he played at number six after Rohit Sharma. He scored 73 runs in 89 balls in that innings. The next year in 2011, he scored the highest runs for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy.

Suryakumar Yadav was also the captain of Mumbai Ranji team and junior Indian team for 56 years. Even in IPL, his performance since 2016 was good, yet he has to wait for 10 years to get Indian. In an interview, Suryakumar Yadav was asked what did you learn after so many rejections. Surya Kumar Yadav says that I learned to make clear goals, make clear plans and execute them.

To understand words clear plan, clear goal and execution. We have to look back 9 years of Surya Kumar Yadav cricket journey. In 2013, under the captaincy of Surya Kumar, the Indian team won the Asia Cup under-23. Along with Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul Axar Patel and Jasprit Bumrah were also in that team.

Surya Kumar Yadav says that all these players had made their debut in the Indian team in the next one or two years. In 2016, Suryakumar Yadav realized that all the players who played with him were now playing for the Indian team. Suryakumar Yadav felt why I was left behind.

Then Suryakumar Yadav started an experiment on his lifestyle. They set their own sleeping and waking times. This process lasted for 2 to 3 years. The thinking was that wherever there is something missing, work hard and see what happens.

Some senior management advised that you start meditating. After that Suryakumar Yadav started meditation twice a day for 10:10 minutes. SKY says that initially he thought it was very boring. But I thought let’s try it honestly.

The effect of the meditation done after that was visible during the match and SKY became perfect in his shot selection. After that all these things became a part of Suryakumar Yadav’s routine. Gradually the effect of all this started showing on the game.

Suryakumar Yadav’s Ranji performance was better in 2017. After that SKY did wonders in IPL in 2018. In the 2018 IPL, SKY scored 512 runs at an average of 36. After that Suryakumar Yadav started enjoying it and he kept working hard.

Now this was the challenge in front of  SKY that what he could do better and what he could improve in the coming tournament. After that SKY used to work hard on him with the coach for whatever points came up after practice.

 According to some news articles, it is believed that Suryakumar Yadav would have played international cricket very early. But in 2014, after being dismissed early during a T20 cricket match, Suryakumar Yadav broke the glass of the dressing room. In another match, Suryakumar Yadav also had an argument with his fellow player Sardul Thakur, due to which the Mumbai Cricket Association expelled Suryakumar Yadav from the team and banned him for some time.

Mumbai team coach Chandrakant Pandit in whom Suryakumar Yadav played says that today Suryakumar Yadav is mentally very song but few years back it was weight distracted and demoralized but depth of man knows how he bounces back.

Suryakumar Yadav practiced in the net for hours and paid attention to his diet. Worked hard in the gym for the big shots. And the biggest thing is Suryakumar Yadav changed his attitude. Today Suryakumar Yadav is always seen smiling. He plays big shots under pressure without any hesitation. But behind this mental attitude, a lot of hard work has been done. His coach says that it is not so easy to change your nature.

Still, he did it, it’s a big deal. Sky hit a half-class in the first T20I. The very next day Sky was named in the ODI team. He again scored 50 runs in the second match of the ODI and was also the Man of the Series in the series and was selected in the Test team only 3 days later. After that Surya kumar Yadav shines like the sun in the T20I cricket.

SKY has scored the most runs for India in T20I cricket since debut. And so far in 2022, Surya kumar Yadav has scored runs at an average of 40 in 14 matches where his strike rate is more than 190.

 My Friend Reader The main point in this article is that the depth of a person is revealed in bouncebacks. I am saying that only a deep person can change his attitude and nature. SKY admits that in 2016 he looked at the mistakes behind him and admitted to paying attention to the mistakes he had committed. SKY believes that we should always do our hard work honestly, we should not pay attention to its results.
