Former Indian pacer and now a Mumbai Indians team operations head, Zaheer Khan was all praise for Surya Kumar Yadav after the MI batsman made an outstanding international debut for India following several years of wait .

Surya was scoring heavily in domestic cricket and IPL and his wide range to shots meant that an Indian white
ball debut was round the corner. However it took much longer time than expected.

Surya handled himself very well

He was overlooked for Australia white ball series and finally got his due in the T20I series vs England .

“With Surya, what stands out is his consistency in last three IPLs, and domestic circuit as well. He is someone who thoroughly deserved this chance and he has worked very hard, and at times you have to be patient, at times opportunity doesn’t come even when you are performing,” Zaheer said during an interaction ‘Twitter Space With Zak’ organized by the Mumbai Indians.

“That’s something that was happening with Surya handled himself very well. And people around him also have been telling him that you have to be patient and just keep doing what you have been doing and it showed in his approach when he started.

“It was like a dream coming true and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands, and showed how determined he was to make it to that level, and win matches for India.”
