Venkatesh Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav joined hands for the second time in the just-concluded three-match series to help team India complete a whitewash against the Windies. Just like what happened in the first T20I, team India was in a spot of both after suffering a mini middle-order collapse when Venkatesh joined Surya in the middle.

Later, after the match, during the post-match conference, Venkatesh Iyer revealed how Surya welcomed him to the crease. Iyer said:

“That’s what you need, guys bouncing off each other. When I went out there, even Surya was relatively new to the crease. I still remember the first words he told me- ‘Aaj ek aur opportunity hai’,”

He added: “So I think, when a senior player tells you that, it gives you a lot of confidence, you see pressure as a privilege.

“He is one of those guys who everyone likes in the dressing room, he has got great chemistry. It was wonderful batting with him, I was really enjoying his batting from the non-striker’s end,”

Talking about Suryakumar, he also unleashed his brute power as he smashed an explosive half-century and was dismissed after scoring 65 runs off 31 balls, smashing seven sixes and one four.
