Mumbai cricketer Suryakumar Yadav has been named in the squad for upcoming limited overs series against England.
It’s been a long wait for him and Suryakumar revealed that he began to cry when he saw his name.
In the interview with BCCI, he said-
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.
He also added that he is very keen to learn from Indian captain Virat Kohli.
“I have always dreamt of playing under Virat Kohli for a long time and I am excited to go and learn a lot from Virat as quickly as I can so that I can be a better player.”
He also spoke high of Rohit Sharma and how he hasn’t changed over years.
He then spoke about his father’s advice whenever he was disappointed.
“My father who has been a great motivating factor for me in life used to tell me, “You just have to work hard and if it is not coming your way, you have to work even more and put that extra yard to be a little different.”
He would tell me, Keep working hard, when the time is right, that door will open and then, you have to grab it with both hands.”
