Suryakumar Yadav, an Indian batter, is looking forward to playing on Sri Lanka’s sluggish and twisting surface. Yadav is an excellent spin bowler, as he has demonstrated in both domestic and IPL cricket with the Mumbai Indians.
Suryakumar Yadav made his T20I debut against England earlier this year as a result of his outstanding form with the Mumbai Indians. He struck a half-century in his debut, demonstrating that he has the potential to become an important batsman for India.
Manish Pandey and Suryakumar Yadav (playing in opposite teams) scored half-centuries in the intra-squad match.

Yadav, speaking to the media ahead of the series against Sri Lanka, said that preparations are well underway. He also believes that his previous experience playing on such wickets will benefit him and the rest of the team.
Suryakumar Yadav expressed his thoughts as follows:
“We have played in these conditions. We have played in Mumbai, Chennai and conditions where the humidity is high. Most importantly, we have come here 15-20 days before the tournament to get acclimatized to these conditions. We played a game too yesterday so it is slow and steady. If there are slow wickets, you need to take time. It will be a good challenge and I am looking forward to it.”
Suryakumar Yadav (in Press) said “Playing for Mumbai Indians has been a great experience, I have been part of this team for a long time, I have learned something from all players. IPL is a great learning and it has helped me a lot”.— Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) July 6, 2021
Suryakumar Yadav believes that playing all of India’s games on the same ground will not give India an advantage because the circumstances will be the same for both sides. However, he believes that once they play a game, preparing would become easier and they will have a greater understanding of the situation.
Suryakumar Yadav commented in this regard:
“Two teams playing together is the first time happening and I am really excited. Playing on one ground, it will be the same for both the teams. After the first day you get to know how the conditions are then you plan according to ground dimensions and pitch conditions.”
