‘I feel the jump on the wicket’: Suryakumar opens on first practice session in Australia


The men in blue led by Rohit Sharma left for Australia on Thursday morning for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. The Indian team will play two exhibition games against Western Australia on October 10 and 13, followed by warm-up matches against Australia and New Zealand for the World Cup.

The 32-year-old batter has been unstoppable since his debut for the Indian cricket team. He had scored tons in the Indian Premier League and that gave him a chance in the Indian team. In the shortest form of the game, he is the highest runner in 2022 and is currently the No. 2 batter in the ICC T20I rankings.

The BCCI shared a video on its Twitter handle where Surya talked about the first training session in Australia.

“I was really looking forward to coming here and attending the first practice session, getting on the ground, walking and running and feeling what it’s like here. The first net session was great too. I just wanted to feel how the pace of the wicket is, how the bounce is,” said Suryakumar.

“Obviously it starts off a bit slow. There were butterflies and there was excitement, at the same time you also have to see how you put yourself in this atmosphere. I’m excited, but at the same time it’s important to follow your routines,” he added.

The Mumbai batter also said: “During practice I can feel the bounce on the wicket, the pace of the wicket and people talking about ground size in Australia. It’s important to read your game plan on how to score runs on these wickets. All these things are very important. Good conditions, I’m really looking forward to it.”

Team India won their last two bilateral T20I series against Australia and South Africa and will play their first match against Pakistan in the World Cup T20.
