Indian cricketer Suryakumar Yadav has been incredibly exceptional on the field in the recently concluded game against the Netherlands cricket team at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. He gave absolutely everything on the field to save a few runs for the team, courtesy of his electrifying pace and ability to attempt a dive to prevent the ball from touching the boundary rope.
He drew plaudits for his dynamic fielding not once but twice against the Dutch cricket team. During the fifth ball of the first over, Jasprit Bumrah tossed a full delivery that was directed towards the outside off region, which gave enough time for the Netherlands’ opener Wesley Barresi to drive through the point. Meanwhile, Suryakumar desperately wanted to save a run so he made a slide before flicking the ball back to save a run.

However, Suryakumar Yadav never gave up as he was determined to chase down till the end before he dived in the followthrough.
