India vice-captain Suryakumar Yadav makes his return to the venue the place he made his worldwide debut, in a T20I in opposition to England practically a few years in the past.
“When I came to the dressing room, I told our team manager that I’ve returned to where it all began. I have great memories here,” Suryakumar stated in a press convention forward of the third T20I in opposition to New Zealand right here.
“This is a beautiful stadium, with an amazing crowd. It will be an exciting game tomorrow,” Suryakumar stated.
Suryakumar didn’t discover any fault within the spin-friendly pitches used within the first two T20Is. This was in distinction to captain Hardik Pandya describing the Lucknow floor as a “shocker”.
“Red soil, black soil – it doesn’t matter what soil you play on. This is not in your control. We did what we could and adapted to the situation in the last match. It was low-scoring, but it was an exciting game. Any game, be it T20 or 50-over, if there is competition between the teams, it will be exciting. The wicket does not matter a lot. We must accept the challenge and move on,” Suryakumar, who made a match-winning unbeaten 31-ball 26 at Lucknow, stated.
The Mumbai batter has been named within the squad for the primary two Tests in opposition to Australia. It is an opportunity for Suryakumar to translate his white-ball success to the longest format. “Obviously everyone wants to play Test cricket. When you start your domestic career, you start with red ball cricket. It will be exciting. But at the same time, I’m focussed on tomorrow’s game,” Suryakumar stated.
