If someone has to define the phrase “Hard work pays off” then he can give an example of Suryakumar Yadav. From struggle to success, the right-handed batsman from Mumbai has seen everything. Despite scoring an ample amount of runs in the domestic circuit and Indian Premier League (IPL), Suryakumar Yadav consistently failed to make cut into the Indian squad. He finally won the trust of selectors this year when he was selected for the white-ball series against England.
He made sure that he assert his authority from the ball one and smashed six on the very first ball he faced in his international career and then later went on to score 57 runs in his first T20I innings. The right-handed Mumbai Indians batsman also looked one of the most promising and stable batsman in the recently concluded series against Sri Lanka.
He was rewarded for his performance in the ODIs with a call-up to England to join the India side as a replacement for the injured players. So far in his short intentional career, he has looked very settled and has shown no signs of nerves. His ability to scores runs quickly and consistently is likely to earn him a spot in the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup, which will take place this year.
Suryakumar Yadav is known for his shots all around the ground. Some fans even call him AB de Villiers of India because of his ability to play unorthodox shots. However, apart from his cricketing life, his love for tattoos has caught the attention of almost every cricket fan. The 30-year-old has more than ten tattoos on his body.
In this article, we will take a look at all the tattoos Suryakumar Yadav and their meanings.
Tattoo of parents name in ambigram form
Like many other people, Suryakumar Yadav is also attached too much to his parents. Before the commencement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, the Mumbaikar inked the name of his parents (Ashok and Sapna) in ambigram form on his right arm. The tattoo reads Ashoka from one end and Sapna from the other end.
“When I got selected for KKR, I put their names in ambigram form. So, from one side it reads Ashok but it reads Sapna from the other,” Suryakumar Yadav said.
