After a win over Australia Suryakumar Yadav's No Non-Sense Take

The stand-in captain of team India, Suryakumar Yadav, will take some time before he can let the heady feeling of being the India captain sink in, but when he is out there with the willow, he believes in keeping the baggage of leadership in the dressing room. He made his senior India captaincy debut with a two-wicket victory over Australia in the first T20 International in Vishakhapatnam on Thursday and also headlined the 209-run chase with a superb 80 off 42 balls.
At the post-match presentation ceremony, Surya said, "I think it's a proud moment. Whenever you play cricket, you think of representing India. It will take some time to sink in, but I'm very proud.”
When asked how to compartmentalize batting and leadership, Surya said, "I left the captaincy luggage in the dressing room. I just tried to enjoy my batting, whether I am batting 10 or 40 balls.”
SKY also said, "The way the boys kept their nerves was great to see. It was a tailor-made situation for Rinku. His composure relaxed me also.”
