It doesn't matter what soil you play on : Suryakumar Yadav

Reports emerged that the curator was sacked from his role following the second T20 match between India and New Zealand

India had to struggle really hard in Lucknow to chase down a paltry target of 100 runs and eventually managed to get over the line in the final over of the match. Such had been the nature of the wicket that skipper Hardik Pandya called the wicket “a shocker” and later reports emerged that the curator was sacked from his role following the second T20 match between India and New Zealand.

However, ahead of the final game in Ahmedabad, Indian vice-captain, Suryakumar Yadav stated that the team have moved on from it and are now ready to battle it out on whatever surface that would be dished out for the team going forward. Yadav, who made his international debut at the same Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in March 2021, added that the team wouldn’t get worried about things that are not in their control.

"It doesn't matter what soil you play on. These are the things which aren't in your control. Whatever was in our control, we did in the last game. And we had to apply and adapt whatever we got. Also, it was an exciting game. No matter what the condition or the format is, if both teams try to have a good competition...wicket shouldn't matter a lot. You go out there, have a challenge, accept it, and move on," Suryakumar said in the pre-match press conference.

"It is completely fine. But we had a chat later on and it was like whatever we get in the future we will go on with it," he added.

For Suryakumar, returning to Ahmedabad is a happy memory. After being unfairly ignored for the longest time, Yadav made his debut for India in 2021 against England in Ahmedabad and since then, hasn’t looked back. He has become the No.1 batter in the ICC T20 rankings and has taken the world of cricket by storm.

“It feels good. When I came to the dressing room, I told our manager that I have come back to where it started. I was taking the steps down quietly and thinking back of 2021…great memories. This will be completely different. Expecting an amazing crowd at the beautiful stadium.”
