Washington Sundar On His Batting: Indian cricket team all-rounder Washington Sundar thanked caretaker coach VVS Laxman for providing him opportunities with bat and ball in the recently concluded 3-match ODI series in New Zealand. Sundar got a chance to bat for the first time after February 2022. He did a great batting against New Zealand in the third ODI played in Christchurch. During this, he scored a half-century. Sundar played this innings at a time when the wickets of Team India were falling continuously. Through his half century, India was able to reach 219 runs. After the match, he said that scoring runs against New Zealand’s best pace attack has boosted his confidence. Sundar has returned to ODI cricket after recovering from injury.
Washington Sundar performed well with the bat in the three-match series against New Zealand. In the first match played in Auckland, he played an unbeaten inning of 37 runs off 16 balls. Due to his innings, India was able to score 306 runs. Whereas in the third ODI played in Christchurch, he once again scored 51 runs while batting brilliantly.

Batting boosted confidence
Speaking to Prime Video after the third ODI was canceled due to rain, Washington Sundar said, of course I must thank Laxman sir for the opportunity he gave.

Getting runs against New Zealand has boosted my confidence. I will continue whatever I have done in this series. According to Sundar, he is clear about his batting. He is happy that his hard work paid off in the 3-match ODI series.
