IND vs NZ: “Adapting to the situation was very important” – Suryakumar Yadav after winning Player Of The Match award in 2nd T20I match against New Zealand
The Indian cricket team recorded a nervous victory over New Zealand in the 2nd T20I match. The Men in Blue won the match by 6 wickets and squared off the T20I Series. Skipper Hardik Pandya is said to be pleased with the bowling unit’s performance as they never allowed a batsman to rest.
New Zealand would be utterly disappointed with their batsmen as there was not a single 20 run partnership in the innings which is unacceptable in modern cricket. Management should perhaps use Glenn Phillips down the ranks as the hitter seemed to be getting into all sorts of trouble against spinners.

Suryakumar Yadav seemed to be in complete control of the match and played according to the situation of the match. The batter scored 26 runs in 31 balls and surprisingly hit only 1 four. He and Hardik Pandya formed a crucial 31-run match-winning partnership as the duo took calculated risks.
The Men in Blue had hoped for a sweeping win after cutting New Zealand down by 99 runs. Management amazingly promoted Washington Sundar to number 5 where he scored 10 runs in 9 balls and had a terrible mix up between him and Suryakumar Yadav.

Adapting to the situation was very important – Suryakumar Yadav
During the post-match presentation, Suryakumar Yadav was asked about his performance. “Another version of SKY today. Adapting to the situation was very important when I started. After Washy’s loss, it was important that someone play the game to the end. (On Washington Sundar run out) It was my fault, it was definitely not a run, I didn’t see where the ball went. Suryakumar Yadav said.
It was a challenging wicket – Suryakumar Yadav
“It was a challenging wicket. We didn’t think it would go this way in the second innings, but it’s important to adapt. We only needed one hit in that over and it was very important to calm our nerves. Before we got the winning points, he (Hardik) came to me and told me ‘you’re going to finish it on this ball’ and that gave me a lot of confidence.” he added.
