Comment of Suryakumar Yadav During Pre-Match Presser Goes Viral

In the upcoming T20I series against Australia, Suryakumar Yadav will be leading the Indian cricket team, and before the first match, his comment during the pre-match press conference left everyone in splits. During the presser, a journalist said that Suryakumar will be playing the series with 'a lot of young guys who will play in a lot of World Cups', referencing the fact that India have selected a number of youngsters in the absence of experienced players who just featured in the Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign. However, Suryakumar quickly interrupted him to say that "I am also young," a statement that left everyone in splits.
Suryakumar was part of the India playing XI in the Cricket World Cup 2023 final, where they lost to Australia, and he opened up about his feelings following the defeat.
Suryakumar said that “it is a little disappointing, obviously. At the end, when you look back at the journey, it was a really great campaign. Every member, not only the players, was very proud of the way we displayed our talent on the field. That was the positive: the brand of cricket that we played throughout the tournament. And we are really proud of that.”
He also said that the disappointment will take some time to subside after the World Cup.
