VVS Laxman praises Suryakumar Yadav

Former India batsman VVS Laxman said that he was astonished by the Suryakumar Yadav six off Jofra Archer and said that that batsman’s mindset is praiseworthy.

“Spectacular, he astonished both me and Jofra Archer. His mindset is praiseworthy. He even told Murali Kartik that he wanted to keep it simple. If you complicate things too much, you forget at times what your strengths are and what is your template of scoring runs,” Laxman told Star Sports Network.

Suryakumar Yadav played some creative shots, says Laxman

Laxman went on to say that Yadav has the strokes required to be a match-winner for India.

“The timing we saw today, the way he placed the ball and the manner in which he was coming behind the line of the ball while playing the pacers and playing creative shots according to the field.

“When the spinners came, (he played) fantastic shots. My favourite was the maximum he hit over extra-cover against Adil Rashid.

“He can play the sweep as well, so he is an all-round player and because of that, his strike rate is always high, and he is a match-winner,” Laxman added.

In the 5 match T20I series both the teams lock their horns to play the decider match on March 20, 2021, at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. Post the T20I series Virat Kohli led India and England will play a 3 match ODI series at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.
