Ahmedabad: On being compared to former Australian cricketer (Michael Bevan), India batsman Suryakumar Yadav on Tuesday laughed and said that let me be Suryakumar Yadav as people have started looking at him like Bevan as a finisher. The 35-year-old has batted at numbers 3, 4, 5 and 6 for India in both T20 and ODI formats. He came to bat at number five in the first ODI against West Indies (IND vs WI) on Sunday. The batsman was asked whether it is okay for people to compare Australian great Michael Bevan on the basis of his ability to finish games. To which the batsman replied, ‘Michael Bevan sir, I have played five games now. Or maybe seven. Let me be Suryakumar Yadav only. “Any number I can bat at, whatever position I am in, if I can get the team to victory from there, that will be my focus,” he said. But I want to be fearless as ever. The Mumbai player played an unbeaten 36-ball 34 and shared an unbeaten 62-run partnership with Deepak Hooda to help India win the first ODI. Chasing the target, India’s batsmen, especially Rohit Sharma, batted openly and Yadav indicated that the team would continue with the same approach. He also feels that batting first is not really a big challenge for the team. Yadav also mentioned that Team India performed better in all departments in the first match of the series and will try to replicate the same. “We have done well in almost all departments and we will try to replicate that. It is a challenge for us to repeat what we have done and move forward.
