Suryakumar Yadav is living a very eventful life in the last couple of months. After having a title-winning season with Mumbai Indians, he was snubbed from the Indian squad which made a huge uproar. He also had a stare-off moment with RCB and Indian skipper Virat Kohli which became viral on social media garnering reactions from various quarters. Meanwhile, Yadav himself revealed the conversation he had with Kohli after the moment on the ground.
The match in which the stare off happened, Surya batted Mumbai Indians to victory with a 43-ball 79. Yadav recently opened up on the infamous incident, saying that things were absolutely fine after the game ended.
“It was all very instinctive. Virat Kohli is a huge cricketing figure and he plays the game very aggressively. It was an important game for both teams and whatever happened, it did during the game,” Surya told Hindustan Times in an exclusive interview.
