India’s batsman Suryakumar Yadav, who made his stellar debut in international cricket, said on Tuesday that Sri Lanka’s tour should start with zero. In addition, calm and focused head coach Rahul Dravid said he was very excited to learn from them. Suryakumar said this was his attempt to start anew. Suryakumar made his maiden fifty in his home T20 series against England. Shikhar Dhawan is part of India’s second class team that toured Sri Lanka. The team will play a three-match ODI and T20 International series from July 13.
The Mumbai right-handed batsman said, ‘There will be pressure, because if there is no pressure, there will be no fun. It will be a big challenge and I am really looking forward to it. Asked if a successful debut would help him cope with the pressure, he said, “I mean, it’s a very different challenge (the first series against England) and as a batsman, every time you play (on the field), you play a different game, you start anew every time.
He said, ‘Here I have to start from zero. It’s a different series and it’s a different series, but the challenge is the same. I have to go to the field and perform like I did. Having said that, I look forward to playing under Dravid’s supervision for the first time. He said, ‘This is a great opportunity for everyone. Traveling in the midst of this (epidemic) is a big challenge. The best thing about the trip is that Rahul (Dravid) sir will be around you. I’ve heard a lot about him. He said, ‘I think this is my first tour with him. I have heard a lot from many players that they are very calm and attentive when speaking in this role.
