“Enjoyed it completely (on playing a finisher’s role). I’ve been doing the same thing for the last two years, and just looked to bat like how I do in the nets. I think the passion for this game kept me going,” Yadav said while speaking to the broadcasters ahead of the second ODI on Tuesday.
“I have been bowling as well, and am ready if the captain asks me to. I have batted at every batting position possible, and I have been playing at number three in the T20s. But I am ready to bat wherever the team management wants me to,” he added.
“My dad kept telling me to stay patient” – Suryakumar Yadav
While talking about his debut Surya expressed his disappointment about the absence of his family.
