Suryakumar Yadav laughs off comparison with greatest finisher Michael Bevan

India batter Suryakumar Yadav on Tuesday laughed off his comparison with one of the sport’s greatest finisher Michael Bevan, saying that he has played very less games for the ‘Men In Blue’ so far.

The 31-year-old had batted at various positions for the Indian team in T20Is and ODIs.

Suryakumar came to bat at No.5 for Team India in the firsy ODI against West Indies and remained unbeaten while chase 178 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahemdabad.

The batter was asked that based on his ability to finish games, which he has done a couple of times for India, people have compared him with Australian great Michael Bevan.

“Michael Bevan, huh? Sir, I’ve just played five games. Or maybe seven. Let me remain, Suryakumar Yadav,” said Yadav hilariously during a virtual press conference, on the eve of the second ODI.

“Whatever number I can bat, whatever situation I am in, if I can make the team win from there, that will be my focus. But I want to be fearless as I am, always,” he added.

While chasing a below-par target, India batters especially Rohit Sharma played with a lot of freedom and Yadav hinted that the team will continue the same approach going forward. He also feels that batting first isn’t really a big challenge for the side.

“Not really, I think, we have kept things really simple, we are going to bat the same way, we did in the last game, it is just that when we bat first, we need to try and bat till the end to have that defendable score, but the way we batted in the second innings in the last game, I think it was perfect,” the batter said.
