“It is my honour to interview SKY today who had played an outstanding knock today. A knock that I thoroughly enjoyed from the other end. He came in and completely changed the momentum of the game on a pitch that wasn’t as easy as he made it look, to be honest,” Kohli said in a video posted on the official website of BCCI.
“Well done, it was a brilliant knock, I have seen so many from a distance when we play against each other in the IPL, or that being done to other teams when we play for India,” he continued.
he asked Suryakumar , “I just want to understand when you walked out there, what was your mindset? You spoke to me that you already had planned something looking how the game was going so please explain that”.
Answering Kohli’s question, Suryakumar said: “Firstly, I like batting with him (Kohli). When we were sitting inside, Rishabh and I were speaking about how we take the game ahead as the wicket was a little slow. When I went to bat, I just tried to be myself and do what I love doing. In the first ten balls, I wanted to hit 3-4 boundaries that time and when I got that, I just kept batting. At that moment, I knew I needed you there and that’s when I told you that keep batting at the other end, it will be easy for you to cover up at the end.”
