- His coach, Dinesh Lad told his parents to never stop Suved from playing cricket because he was sure that he would perform very well in cricket. He even suggested to his parents that studies can wait, and they should not force him to study. In an interview, his coach further said,
We always speak of attitude in cricket. Skills can be developed. With Suved, he had both. His attitude towards the game and just how he held the bat, it came naturally to him. There are not many who get the basics right even before they are coached. Since school days, once set he is used to converting those starts into big knocks. The stage he has reached today is because of dedication. He is very sincere and I have never seen him miss a training session. In fact, he keeps pushing me to conduct extra sessions.”
