After the maiden-call up, Suryakumar is excited to share the dressing room with Indian cricket team greats like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

“I have already started thinking about how I am going to spend time with all the greats over there.

“I will get to learn so much from our captain Virat Kohli and then there is Rohit Sharma, everyone, A-Z all the players. I am really looking forward to spend quality time, grasp as much as I can,” Suryakumar told Sports Today.

The 30-year-old is very focused and said it’s how he makes full use of the opportunity that has come at the right time for him.

“There were a few instances during the IPL where I used to dream about winning games for India and I think the opportunity for me has come at the right time. It’s on me how I take it and how I make full use of it.”

The Mumbaikar further said he is going to take one game at a time without thinking too much.

“Not thinking about too much, I would say, I would go one step at a time, take one game at a time. I have a few plan. Obviously, I would love to go ahead and explore in this series,” Surya said.
