Suryakumar Yadav On Pitch controversy: Since the second ODI between India and New Zealand played at Shri Atal Bihari Bajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow, the pitch controversy is not taking its name to stop. Captain Hardik Pandya gave a big statement on the pitch after winning the match. He did not describe the pitch of this match as fit for a T20 match. At the same time, Suryakumar Yadav, the vice-captain of the T20 team, has given his own opinion on the pitch controversy.
Indian T20 team vice-captain Suryakumar Yadav has played down the Ekana Stadium pitch controversy, saying pitch doesn’t matter much and he is ready to play on any kind of surface. Indian captain Hardik Pandya had described the Lucknow pitch as surprising after achieving the target of 100 runs in the second T20 with difficulty in the last over. The curator was also blamed for the unusual behavior of the pitch and was sacked.
Suryakumar said in the press conference before the third and last T20 match of the series, ‘We (Hardik and I) talked about it later, and decided that whatever pitch we get in future, we will not complain. It is perfectly fine. Suryakumar said, ‘It does not matter on which clay pitch you play. These things are not in your control. We did what was in our control, we had to adapt and move forward with those circumstances. But it was an exciting match.
Suryakumar, who has been running in excellent rhythm for some time, gave the credit of his success to the experience of domestic cricket. Suryakumar Yadav said, ‘Before making my debut in international cricket, I have played a lot of domestic cricket, which has helped me a lot. You have to work hard on yourself and I carried forward that hard work by playing on different challenging pitches. I have learned a lot by seeing so many experienced players in the team and talking to them.
