Those 7 Seconds… Suryakumar Reveals The Untold Story of Miller’s Catch, Discloses the Secret of a Call to Dravid!

Suryakumar Yadav shared that when the ball was coming towards him, he glanced at Rohit Sharma for a second. He also revealed a story involving Rahul Dravid.

After winning the T20 World Cup, the Indian team’s return home is imminent. Meanwhile, a detailed interview with star batter Suryakumar Yadav has been published. Devendra Pandey of the Indian Express spoke in-depth with Suryakumar. In this interview, Suryakumar discussed various topics, from his famous catch in the final to his batting. He also made a significant revelation about Rahul Dravid.

After the final victory, a video surfaced where Virat Kohli hands over the World Cup trophy to Rahul Dravid, who then celebrates in an unprecedented manner. When asked if he had ever seen Dravid so happy, Suryakumar replied:

“That 30-second clip, when he took the trophy and screamed… that moment when he expressed his joy. I will save this clip forever.”

During this conversation, Suryakumar shared another story about Dravid. He revealed that after the Indian team lost the ODI World Cup final last year, Dravid did not want to continue as the head coach. However, Rohit Sharma called him and requested him to stay. Suryakumar said:

“After celebrating with the trophy, Dravid approached Rohit and thanked him. After the ODI World Cup final loss, Dravid wanted to step down, but Rohit and Jay Shah convinced him to remain in his position.”

In the same interview, Suryakumar narrated the story of catching David Miller’s ball. He mentioned that he had practiced a lot for such catches. He explained that Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya had set the field for a wide yorker, and he was positioned slightly wide at long-off. When the catch was coming, all he thought about was catching it somehow. Suryakumar stated:

“Normally, Rohit bhai doesn’t stand at long-on. But he was there at that time. When the ball was coming, I glanced at him for a second. I ran, and my goal was to catch it. If Rohit was nearby, I would have tossed the ball to him. But he was far. I can’t describe what happened in those 4-5 seconds.”

Suryakumar added that when he caught the ball and tossed it, his feet did not touch the boundary rope. He mentioned that anything could have happened. If the ball had gone for six runs, India might still have won the match, but the equations would have been much tougher.
