Fans were excited about the return of the 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2023, but the five-time champion Mumbai Indians did not have the best start to the tournament. The team led by Rohit Sharma lost their first game of the tournament, which was against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Suryakumar Yadav, an important Indian batter, has been having a string of bad games, which has disappointed his fans. In Mumbai’s first game of the season, he was out after only 15 runs. Surya has been struggling to find his form lately, and he didn’t do well when India played Australia in February-March 2023.

After getting out early in the first IPL game, South African legend and Royal Challengers Bangalore player AB de Villiers recently talked to Surya about his form and how he could get better.

“Surya is likely at a point in his life where he needs to do something. But the key is not to get scared and not to change your plan. He needs to keep doing what has worked for him in the past “News18 said that De Villiers said this.

“Yes, maybe he can try to remember ‘what are my basics’ or ‘what did I do well when I was just consistently scoring runs,'” he said. “But it’s clear that he’s taken his game to a whole new level.”

It’s not a bad thing to drop a notch: De Villiers
In the same vein, De Villiers said that Surya should forget what is expected of him. He also thought about how going down a level is not always a bad thing.

“It’s not a bad idea to go down a level and stay there for a while before coming back up. You can’t always get 100 points on 40 shots; it won’t always happen “De Villiers said.

“I had to learn this the hard way because the Chinnaswamy crowd was always there and expected me to score a hundred in every game. I had to tell myself sometimes, “Hey, AB, let’s be honest, you’re not very good at reading the ball.” Just make sure you run a ball and give Virat the strike, or just get someone else on. And then slowly but surely I get one good shot, and then I’m back in the game “he added.
