Suryakumar Yadav expressed his desire to play the longer format of cricket.
Suryakumar has excelled and mastered the shorter format as he became the number T20I batter in ICC rankings after playing 42 games. In T20 World Cup 2022, he was the second leading run-scorer from India. Now, Surya is gearing up to play for Mumbai in Ranji trophy game against Madhay Pradesh after 3 years.
“Yes, obviously, I’ve always dreamt of playing Tests for India as well. When you start playing cricket for your state, you start with the red ball. Gradually you get into the white ball team. I feel that this is the best format of the game, and I really enjoy playing it,” said Surya.
“When I started playing age group cricket and the Ranji Trophy, I played red-ball cricket only. At the start of my career, I earned slowly earned recognition through red-ball cricket. My white-ball (exploits) came later. The red-ball format is very close to my heart. I really enjoy playing it,” Surya added.
