Former Indian batting coach, Sanjay Bangar has heaped praises on Indian middle order batter Suryakumar Yadav. He termed Surya’s crazy ability to hit all around the ground as an inspiration for many young guys out there.
Suryakumar Yadav ‘s rise in T20 cricket this year has been phenomenal. Making his debut at the age of 30, Surya has risen through the ranks right to the top in no time.

Suryakumar Yadav finished the tournament as the second-highest run-scorer with 239 runs at a massive strike rate of 189.
Many cricketers around the world have heaped praise on Surya. Former Indian batting coach Sanjay Bangar is the latest to join. He said during a show at Star Sports that Surya has become an inspiration for many with his multi-dimensional ability. He also emphasized the need for more players with that hitting ability in the Indian cricket team.
“Suryakumar Yadav is a player who will revolutionize Indian T20 cricket,” Sanjay Bangar
Sanjay Bangar has described Suryakumar Yadav as a player who can revolutionize the T20 cricket approach in India. He said that he will become an inspiration for players who want to target both sides of the field.
“Suryakumar Yadav is a player who will revolutionize Indian T20 cricket. You will have to find more multi-dimensional players like him, just like the England team, which is filled with all-rounders till No. 9 or No. 10“
“Players who can target both sides of the wickets with their shots, can play the switch hit, reverse sweep, and find unconventional pockets. I feel such players will get more encouragement. The number of options he has, he plays all types of shots. He is an inspiration, and you will get to see more players who play like that going ahead”
Bangar further added that Suryakumar Yadav has elevated his stature by performing in difficult overseas conditions.
“He has become a totally all-round batter. There was a time when Suryakumar Yadav was known for playing only shots over fine leg. Now his range has increased, and his stature has increased. The special thing is that in pressure situations, whether it is Australian or English conditions, which are considered the most difficult for batting. He has gone there and on his first tour itself, he has left his impact”
