“Just wanted to come here and say massive thanks to you all. It is an unbelievable feeling. This award is for everyone who’s been a part of my journey. My coaches, my family, my friends, my teammates and all you guys are my driving force. Last year was full of blessings. And some unforgetable memories. My favourite one being the first hundred which I got for my country. While the year ended on a personal high note, there were surely some learnings to take. And I want to leave you guys with my biggest learning from the previous year. That was work hard and be honest to yourself. While I talk about the year that has given me so much, I am looking forward to this year and all that is in store for us achieve together. Guys, toh milte hai maidan pe,” said Suryakumar in a video posted by him on Twitter.
