Reacting
over
his
knock,
the
Mumbaikar
told,
“I’m
really
happy
with
the
way
the
innings
went.
Captain
winning
the
toss
and
batting
first
showed
faith
in
the
batters,
few
shots
are
pre-determined,
but
these
are
the
shots
I’ve
been
playing
over
the
last
year
and
I’m
not
doing
anything
different.
​The
2022
form
is
gone,
it’s
a
fresh
start
in
2023
and
I
hope
to
continue
doing
well.
It’s
a
good
pitch,
a
nice
bounce
and
a
lush
outfield.”

SKY
in
a
league
of
his
own

The
Mumbai
cricketer
is
the
only
player
in
the
world
with
more
than
1
hundred
and
40+
average
and
175+
Strike-Rate
in
T20Is.

He
also
became
the
first
player
to
slam
three
T20I
centuries
outside
the
opening
slot.

Impressed
with
his
batting
performance
and
the
way
he
toyed
with
Sri
Lankan
pacers
and
spinners,
former
India
opener
Gautam
Gambhir
said
on
Star
Sports,
that
he
should
be
included
in
the
Test
format
as
well.

“He
should
be
included
in
the
Test
team
as
well
because
he’s
in
the
form
of
his
life
and
you
should
make
full
use
of
a
player’s
rich
vein
of
form.
Surya
is
capable
of
changing
the
complexion
of
the
game
and
the
format
won’t
bother
him.
I
just
hope
that
selectors
utilise
his
potential
in
the
red-ball
format
as
well,”
Gambhir
said.

Suryakumar
slammed
a
fifty
in
the
previous
game
which
was
played
in
Pune
but
his
performance
in
that
game
went
in
vain
as
Team
India
lost
the
game
by
a
margin
of
16
runs.
