Indian polisher Suryakumar Yadav on Thursday addressed concerns regarding Jasipino BumrahIn terms of fitness, it can be said that there is “absolutely nothing to worry about” and the speed spear is ready to return after recovering from a back injury. Bumrah did not feature in the opening T20I match against Australia when the team leadership decided to give the player more time as he will return after recovering from a back injury. The Indian player has been out of action since the end of the tour in England and also had to skip the Asian Cup due to injury.
“Actually I am not aware of any such communication, it is not my department, you should not ask me about it (laughs), these are things for the management and team management to answer. .
“But in the team, the environment is good and all are fit in the first place and ready for the second T20I,” Suryakumar said in a virtual press conference when asked about Bumrah’s match fitness and also where. Umesh Yadav match the scheme of things.
When asked more about Bumrah, Suryakumar said: “Absolutely, he is ready, nothing to worry about.” India, sans Bumrah, had a poor performance as they failed to defend 208 in the series opener, with the drivers running for 150 runs.
However, Suryakumar came out to defend the bowlers.
“Actually after the last game we didn’t have any discussions but as you saw yesterday the game was very long and also foggy, and you have to credit them too, they kept attacking, we’re trying to be the best,” he said.
In his comeback match, Harshal Patel conceded 49 times without a wicket, which includes 22 runs over 18. When asked if Harshal’s variations are becoming predictable, Suryakumar said: “He’s a very good cheater. I don’t participate in net sessions much, but as much as I have played him and Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar) bhai is also difficult to decipher…
“But Harshal’s slower balls and his various variations are really deceiving and he’s just been injured, so much of the benefit of the doubt should be allowed.” In polishing, India’s aggressive approach has been profitable as KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav took the team past the 200 mark after beating top order Rohit Sharma and Virat kohli was fired early.
“Evaluating the pitch is very important. Everyone is playing their role, they know their responsibilities, what they have to do in different situations.
“The openers know their role well and then it comes down to how averaging we need to set the game in terms of what they’re supposed to do and it’s already well established by the guys. In the end, things are going really well and we will look to do it over and over again,” he said.
When asked if there was any specific role assigned to him to attack middle-order spinners, Suryakumar quipped: “I’ve also hit two six-pointers against the archers. fast, so I should get a little credit for that, say?” “I’m very flexible, I don’t have a specific role. Actually, I plan for every situation myself. I have the flexibility to join anywhere, any number I’m asked to, I know. I just have to do my part and I’m happy about it.” Suryakumar scored 25 46 balls, pinned with two pins and four sixs, in the opening match.
India captain Rohit Sharma is quite verbose in Mohali, and on one occasion he was seen grabbing the keeper Dinesh Karthik after the Indian captain went with his instincts for a DRS call, this saw Glenn Maxwell walk back to the hut for the past 12 days.
Asked about the situation, Suryakumar said: “On the pitch, the pressure is huge, so it’s important to have some laughter to lighten the situation but the focus is always there during the game.
“In DRS, sometimes what happens is, the sound of an edge doesn’t reach behind and Rohit and Dinesh know each other very well, they’ve been playing for so long, so they get into the jokes.” Karthik wasn’t entirely convinced as he hadn’t heard anything, but in the end, the DRS showed that Umesh Yadav had dealt a fine from Maxwell’s bat.
