In an interview with The Bharat Express News, Mumbai Indians and Indian batsman Suryakumar was asked about his ideal batting position in T20Is where he feels most comfortable. Suryakumar replied:

“I loved hitting in every position: 1, 3, 4, 5. I feel like number 4 is a good position for me. The situation I’m hitting allows me the game to keep under control.

I feel like the most important period in a T20 game is from the eighth to the 14th – Suryakumar Yadav

The 32-year-old believes that the most important stage in a T20 cricket match is from the eighth to the fourteenth. He said:

“I’ve seen a lot of games where teams have great power play and strong finishing, but I think the most important period in a T20 game is from eighth to 14th.”

Suryakumar Yadav went on to say that hitting number 4 is a challenging job which he likes. He claimed:

“You have to step harder on the pedal in that phase. I try not to play too many risky shots. I try to play over cover and try to cut through the point, run hard and keep the scoreboard ticking so that after the 15th over the finishers have no problem finishing the game. No.4 is also a challenging position to hit, which is why I enjoy it. ”
