Suryakumar Yadav gave a witty reply to Hardik Pandya after the latter commented on a post, which displayed the former training at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Suryakumar Yadav had posted a picture on Instagram of him diving for the ball and fielding it successfully. He captioned it as 'SKY is clear to fly' cleverly punning on the word 'SKY', which also denotes the initials of his name.
