Suryakumar hit the ball well and also became the third-fastest Indian to 1,000 runs in T20Is (by innings). Suryakumar reached the milestone in his 31st innings, behind only KL Rahul and Virat Kohli in terms of achievement.

“He is somebody who wants to play the game, wants to keep going out there and keep doing well. That is what keeps him happy and we want to keep him happy.”
