Watch Video: Suryakumar Yadav’s ‘Lao bhaiya do’ Reaction Towards Fan While Collecting Player of the Match Award
India continued their winning momentum in the ongoing T20 World Cup defeating the Netherlands by 56 runs in their second game. They now top the group thanks to a brilliant all-round effort from the team. After opting to bat first, it was the batting of trio – Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav – that lifted the side to a very good score.
Perhaps, it was Surya’s knock that changed the momentum of the innings with the Men in Blue scoring 179/2 in their 20 overs. He slammed an unbeaten 51 off just 25 deliveries with seven fours and one six to his name. He deservedly won the Player of the Match award as well.
As Surya stood to collect the award from a fan, the mic caught him hilarious saying, ‘Lao bhaiya do,’ (Give it to me, brother) before he held the Player of the Match trophy. The reaction made the fan and a plethora of fans on the internet chuckle. Watch the video below
When asked about his knock Suryakumar said, “I was just trying to express myself when I went in to bat. The situation was very simple, I just had to up the tempo at that time. I took one ball today (to get going), but the message was loud and clear. We had to get about 8-10 an over and get a total which our bowlers could defend easily. Very happy with the way things went. Really enjoying batting with him (Kohli), the thoughts are very clear when we both are batting. If I get few boundaries earlier then our partnership needs to be stretched and that’s what we are doing.”
With this win, India have moved to the top in Group 2 with two points in as many games. The Netherlands are at the bottom and has yet to score a point after two losses.
