Suryakumar has made a very late debut, but looking at his game, it seems that he should have made his debut much earlier. He said, ‘I often talk about my past. When I am in my room or traveling with my wife, we talk about the situation two-three years ago. How is the situation today and what has changed between then and now? Often keep talking about.
Definitely there was a bit of disappointment at that time but we always kept on keeping in mind that if there is something positive then we should focus on that. How can I become a better cricketer and move forward? After that time I tried different things like eating well, spending enough time in practice sessions, sleeping at the right time, which is paying off today.

Suryakumar admitted that some of his strokes took him by surprise but he never tried to outdo cricket.

Suryakumar said, ‘I never tried to get ahead of the game. I never thought that if I am playing well then I should score so many runs because it is important to stay in the present. Confidence always remains. When you are performing well then also you have to go through the same processes. Even on the day of the match, I try to do 99 percent of the same things that I do on a normal day.
Kohli respects my game: Surya
Suryakumar said about batting at number three, ‘Recently in some matches, I and Virat played many good partnerships together. I thoroughly enjoy batting with him. The biggest thing is that I have to run a lot because he is a very fit player, but when we are off the field, we don’t talk too much about the game. We respect each other’s game.
