Suryakumar Yadav made a stellar outing in his first opportunity with the bat during the fourth T20I against England in Ahmedabad. Suryakumar scored 57 in just 31 deliveries, breaking six fours and three sixes during his inning.
The right batsman hit a six from his first ball against Joffre Archer.
He was named the man of the match for his brilliant shot and at the post-match press conference Suryakumar said he was pleased with how he scored during the fourth T20I.
“Very pleased with the way things went out. My plan was really clear when I went out to fight. I’ve seen Archer for the last two or three seasons in IPL“I watched all his matches when a new batsman came in, what plans he had, obviously I had my plans too,” said Suryakumar.
The inning by the 30-year-old batsman was cut short after a controversial third decision by the judge led to his dismissal. He was caught at the border line by David Malan, but the legality of the catch remains controversial for many, with the third judge ultimately sentencing him for lack of convincing evidence.
“It was a great opportunity for me to fight under number three for India. Yes, I knew he would have enough, I’m really happy with things. Regarding my dismissal, I’m not disappointed because few things are out of my control. The things that are under my control, I try to control this and the things outside of that are not in my hands, “Yadav said.
Earlier, India skipper They grow kohli also expressed disappointment with the call of a third judge, who saw the dismissal of well-disposed Suryakumar Yadav and said the soft signal should be removed.
“There was a case during the test series when I was next to Jinx (Adjinkya Rahane) and he obviously caught the ball, but he wasn’t sure, so we went upstairs. If it’s half and half an effort and the outfielder doubts, there is no way the square leg referee can see it clearly. The soft signal is becoming important and difficult, “Collie said when asked about this and called for something radical to replace the soft signal.
I don’t know why there can’t be a “I don’t know” call with the referees. It’s like a call and a referee. These are decisions that can change the course of the game, especially in these big games. We were at the end of the reception today, and tomorrow it could be another team. You want these to be smoothed out and keep the game really simple. It’s not perfect in high-pressure games and there’s a lot of clarity in the field, “he added.
