India’s Mr 360 degree batsman Suryakumar Yadav is currently the world’s No. 1-ranked T20I batter. However, he is going through a sluggish form in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

The aggressive batter has scored only 59 runs from three innings in the marquee event so far. Several fans severely criticised SKY for his failures against Ireland and Pakistan and was labelled ‘minnow-basher’ by his critics.

In response to the criticism, Surya said, “If have you been number one for two years, you should be able to bat in different conditions and change the game as per the needs of the team. That displays good batsmanship and that is what I try.”

“It’s difficult to generate that force when there’s no pace on the wicket and when someone has read your game nicely. So, at that time, you have to be very smart how you want to extend your innings. You have to change according to the situation, what team demands at that moment and talk to your partner who is inside, calm your nerves down and then take the innings ahead,” he added.
