Suryakumar Yadav wins hearts with this generous gesture: See what he did !

We don’t see players as humble as Suryakumar Yadav in modern days. Besides playing in the best leagues and tournaments across the globe, Suryakumar Yadav makes sure that he does not forget his roots. And that is exactly why he still plays in local tournaments now and then to interact with the upcoming stars of his area and also with the veterans he once used to play with. He played in a similar local tournament recently and made headlines.

Playing for Parsee Gymkhana against Payyade Sports Club, Sky scored 259 runs off just 152 deliveries – basically he toyed with the bowlers which was quite expected of him. However, it was not the knock that impressed netizens but rather what he did after winning the trophy.

After winning the match and receiving the trophy, he gave it to the groundsmen along with the cash prize that he won.

Speaking about his kind gesture, Suryakumar said that the groundsmen often do not get the credit they deserve. They are the first to arrive at the field ahead of every match and their hard work needs to be appreciated. He revealed that during his days as a youngster, he used to roll the pitch with the Groundsmen.

“I think that’s one thing we always neglect as cricketers. The effort groundsmen make is not spoken much about. They are the first ones to be on the ground. In the morning they are here by 6:30 AM. They will prepare the pitch, clear dew. These things are close to my heart because the time I started to play cricket, I remember whenever I had to bat at the nets, I used to roll the pitch along with groundsmen and a few of my friends,” said Suryakumar Yadav as quoted by The Indian Express.

“They go unnoticed. We score, everyone praises us, we see our name in papers but sadly no one says thank you for their (groundsmen) effort. I feel each player should remember their contribution towards their game. They make pitches for us, they ensure we get a good track to uplift our career. They deserve a lot of credit,” concluded Suryakumar Yadav.
