India’s Mr 360 degree and World’s top T20I batsman Suryakumar Yadav recently revealed his success mantra in T20s. As per the unorthodox batsman, he always likes to put himself under pressure during practice as it helps him during crucial match time.

The explosive batsman made the statement after scoring a blazing ton which helped India win the third T20I against Sri Lanka on Saturday. In the process, the Men in Blue registered a 2-1 series victory over Sri Lanka.

“It’s really important to put pressure on yourself when you are preparing for a game. If you do that in practice, it gets a little easier while playing the game. There is a lot of hard work involved but it’s about doing quality practice sessions. You should know what your game is and prepare accordingly,” said Suryakumar.

“Boundaries behind are like 50-60 meters, so I was targeting them. There are some shots that are pre-determined but you need to have other shots too so that if the bowler changes his plan, you can have an answer,” said the explosive batsman while revealing the reason behind his shot selections.

Suryakumar also hailed Team India coach Rahul Dravid for giving him the full freedom to express himself in the middle.

“Dravid just lets me enjoy and tells me to express myself,” said the flamboyant batsman.

Notably, Suryakumar’s blistering unbeaten century (112 no, 51b) and a dominating performance by bowlers helped India thrash Sri Lanka by 91 runs in the third and final T20I.
