Suryakumar Believes in ‘Following Process’ After India A Snub

Written by Abhishek Patil

Despite having a brilliant Indian Premier League season, Surya Kumar Yadav’s name did not figure in the India A squads announced by the BCCI for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka and West Indies.

And the Mumbai batsman believes in following process and fate, saying that if the call-up has to come, it will come.

“I used to think about this before, why it’s (the call) not coming again and again but this year I had a chat with a lot of players during IPL and I had a word with Rohit (Sharma) as well what happens if you perform well and your name is not in the side which you are thinking of” he said.

“So he was like I think at the end what matters is how you enjoy the sport and how you enjoy playing cricket and that’s it.

“If you always think about result, and then your process and the routines which you follow that will be affected. And I do the same thing rather than thinking about the result, I believe in process. If the process and routines are right, I think the results will always be taken care of itself by what I feel, I just believe in following process, if it (the call) has to come, it will come,” he said.

Surya, who has been Mumbai’s batting mainstay, was speaking at a press briefing organized by the Triumph Knights Mumbai North East, whom he is leading in the ongoing T20 Mumbai League.

Surya, who played for the eventual champions Mumbai Indians, scored 424 runs in the recently concluded IPL from 16 matches with 71 not not being his highest score.
