Indian middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav showered praises on his teammate Prithvi Shaw for working hard on his fitness and improving his game.
SKY signed off by saying that he is excited to see how the young Indian opener performs in his upcoming matches. Both Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav played a crucial role in India’s ODI series win against Sri Lanka. While Shaw gave the Indian cricket team a much-needed excellent start to the game, on the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav ensured the middle-order capitalized on the good platform laid by the openers.
In the ongoing three ODIs against Sri Lanka, both the cricketers scored more than 100 runs. SKY made his ODI debut in the series by scoring 124 runs at an average of 62, whereas Shaw amassed 105 runs at a strike rate of 125.

After the match, at a virtual press conference, Suryakumar Yadav was asked about his views on the performance and growth of Prithvi Shaw. Heaping praises on Shaw, SKY said:
“I only have one word for him. Whenever I see him bat or whenever I meet him, I only call him a ‘showstopper,’ meaning he is someone whom you love seeing and who loves everyone to have an eye on him.”
So, whenever he bats, he bats like that. And I would love to see him remain the same. He is batting brilliantly. His attitude while batting is brilliant. He has worked very hard on his fitness. It is really good to see him doing so well.”
