Suryakumar Yadav Evokes His Reactions After Getting Maiden India Call-Up
The classy right-handed batsman recalled his reaction after he saw his name in India’s squad for the very first time. Suryakumar Yadav revealed that he instantly started crying when he saw his name in India’s T20I squad.

“I was very excited as I got to know about the selection. I was sitting in the room, trying to watch a movie, and got a notification on the phone that I was picked in the Indian team for England T20Is. I started crying after seeing my name in the team. I called my parents, my wife, and my sister. We had a video call and all of us started crying”, the official website of BCCI quoted Suryakumar as saying.
“Along with me, they have also been trying to live this dream for a long time. It has been a very long journey and they are the ones who have stood by me throughout. It was really great to see them happy and have those tears of happiness. Everyone wants to play for India. But finally, my time has come”, he added.
Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav is excited for the opportunity to share the Indian dressing room with stalwarts such as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He will be keen to make a statement in his debut series and if he does that India will get a potent middle-order batsman ahead of the ICC T20 world cup which will be played between October-November in India.
