How Suryakumar Yadav resembles gully cricket played on steroids in professional cricket


Similar to adroit tennis-ball batsmen, Surya is capable of playing the lap, reverse lap, and sweep as well as changing his shots at the last second with a deft wrist whip.

Suryakumar Yadav, joke kaati-kitu irukaar He presents it as though it were a joke. Abhinav Mukund, a former opener for India, is heard gasping on the Tamil commentary after witnessing Suryakumar Yadav’s breathtaking six that brought up his hundred.

Another former India opener, S Ramesh, who had languid, beautiful wrists, was seated next to him. He spoke up and said, “Hardik Pandya looks stunned also, and Rahul Dravid must be asking, “What was that, we never played those shots in our day! “.

This is the picture. Suryakumar had surged across to the offside just before he was released, indicating that he intended to sweep him over square-leg. The bowler made a change and pushed it farther outside of off stump. However, Surya instantly revised his original idea and, with astonishing dexterity in the bat movement, cut the ball past cover point for a six.

Another illustration that emphasizes a point expressed earlier in these pages. Tennis-ball cricket played in gullies is slowly emulating that professional sport. The good batters of our youth used tennis balls and all these shots against seamers: the lap, the reverse lap, the sweep, this Surya shot as well (changing shots at the last second), and whipping the yorker length ball all over the infield. It still occurs in that unprofessional society today.

Few people at the time believed that any of this could be accomplished in serious hard-ball cricket. Similar to how it was thought hard to chase down high totals on the fifth day of a Test match.

The theme even from the supporters used to be, “Arre how can you, the pitch is deteriorated, they can deploy fielders near the boundary, and they can bowl wide, wider than in limited-overs game.” All of that ‘knowledge’ has now been discredited.

The only distinction is how totally professionalized the entire zaniness of gully cricket has become. Now there is a way to accomplish that zaniness. Like they’ve captured and honed that DIY mentality in a laboratory.

They use “shape” as their core component.

The former Caribbean star Darren Sammy gasped on air during the series against West Indies when Suryakumar asked, “What bad did (the bowler) Alzari Joseph do?” Surya hit a back-of-length delivery that was fast and accurate, angling in on the off stump, for a six over long-off.

In a word, it boils down to how modern batters retain their shape, stretch their upper bodies, fully extend their arms, and work to keep their balance even at the risk of falling over. Then, bam. Positioning is key, followed by learning how to hold the rest of the body so that the violence may scientifically develop to its maximum potential. There is no longer the same visceral rush from watching a six as there once was. First off, it frequently rains sixes these days. The batsmen’s ability to mix several small motions (and a challenging stillness) to flawlessly come together to carry out the vision is the reason for the gasp-worthy admiration. the placement and the shape.
