Talking About His Brilliant Shot That Mesmerized Sachin Tendulkar, Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav was in explosive form during the match against Gujarat Giants (GT), scoring his first IPL century to propel his team to a record victory over a strong bowling opponent. Once they triumphed in that game, MI was able to raise their NRR and give themselves a shot at making the playoffs.
Yadav raised some eyes during the game by playing a unique shot down to the third man area that went all the way for a maximum. During the game, the shot went viral and has been making the rounds on social media ever since.
He played a variety of shots during his brilliant run and scored goals all around the pitch. No shot, though, was as daring as the one he took, in which he made a pacey delivery appear easy by guiding it over the third man fielder for a six.
Speaking to JioCinema, Yadav added that he had practised this shot against Shami numerous times and had figured out his plan of attack before actually pulling the trigger.
Mumbai's chances of making the playoffs depend entirely on Surya's present batsmanship. The Mumbai team now feels more optimistic as they find themselves in a strong position to advance to the playoff round thanks to his magic with the sword. Their following match is scheduled for May 21 against a depleted SRH team.
