IND vs SL: Suryakumar Yadav Lambasts Indian Selectors With Indirect Tirade. The batter for Team India, Suryakumar Yadav, talked about his difficulties in making the Indian team.

I Would Always Think How I Could Be Different: Suryakumar Yadav
He ultimately played in his first T20I at the age of 30, going up against the visiting England team, and he hasn’t looked back since. Despite receiving rejections time and time again, Suryakumar said in an interview with PTI that he was not frustrated by them:
“I won’t say I got irritated but I would always think how I could be different to move to the next level. So hard work continued and you need to enjoy the game also.”
He added: “That’s why you started playing cricket. Whether it was a simple training session or even the food that was healthy but I didn’t enjoy earlier, I started to savor it. I knew that if I stop thinking about outcomes and just focus on the process, I would someday break the door.”

If You Have Gone Through Domestic Grind In India, You Are Ready For International Cricket: Suryakumar Yadav
Before making the transition to the international arena, Suryakumar belonged to the group of cricketers who had gathered a tonne of domestic experience.
The years of grinding had benefits in that it made the transition easier, in contrast to the workload management era, where players with little experience are called up and struggle at the top level.
Observing how his background in domestic cricket helped him adjust, Suryakumar said:
“Grinding it out at first-class level, you learn a lot of tricks of the trade. So when you graduate to the international level and play different bowlers, all you need to do is express yourself.”
He continued: “But let me tell you this. If you have gone through the domestic grind in India, you are ready for international cricket and when you start that level, you are not carrying any baggage. Just execute what you did at the domestic level.”
