Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav’s omission from the Indian team raised eye-brows. Yadav has now opened up about the stare-off with Virat Kohli.

“I have seen him this energetic in every game. It wasn’t as if he was like this in the game against MI. Even when he plays for India or even in franchise cricket and against any team, he is aggressive and energy is always spot on. It was an important match for them (RCB) as well. After the match, he was back to normal. He told me well played,” Surkyamar Yadav told Sports Tak in a video posted on YouTube.

“It wasn’t anything. It was just in the heat of that moment. I was also a bit surprised that it was highlighted so much,” he said of the incident.
