Mumbai Indians star batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the most contributors for the side in the ongoing IPL season. The right-handed batsman said he would continue to perform for the side in the upcoming matches.
The 30-year-old has played some match-winning knocks for the MI this season including unbeaten 79 off 43 balls against the RCB.
“Currently, I am really enjoying my batting. Since the start of the tournament, I felt I was batting really well and in the practice games as well. In the first few games, I think I actually lost a bit of track. I was gifting my wicket away, I felt. So, I thought I will go inside and spend some more time on my batting,” Yadav said in a video posted by Mumbai Indians on Twitter.
“Even when I used to come to practice back in the hotel room, I used to think about what my batting is really and how do I construct it from the beginning. In the later part of the tournament, I thought the deeper I bat, the easier it will become for me, as well as the team. And I can make a good platform for other players to finish the game… I’ve been really enjoying my batting a lot and hopefully, I carry the same thing into the next game coming up and onto the playoff as well,” he added.
Yadav has scored 374 runs in 13 matches and also the third highest scorer of the MI after Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan.
Mumbai Indians have been overwhelming this season with a top place in the points table and a place in the playoffs. They have won nine of its 13 matches in the tournament and miles ahead of the other teams.
The side will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last league stage match at Sharjah Cricket Stadium today.
