Former pacer S Sreesanth was all praise for Mumbai Indians batter Suryakumar Yadav, who slammed his second consecutive fifty in the 2023 Indian Premier League against the Punjab Kings in Mohali. He termed the right-handed batter as a “Mathematician, who dissects the field brilliantly.
Suryakumar Yadav slammed 66 runs off just 31 deliveries, including eight boundaries and two sixes. His partnership with Ishan Kishan powered Mumbai Indians to a six wicket win chasing down 215 runs with seven balls to spare. Speaking on Star Sports, S Sreesanth lauded Suryakumar Yadav’s effort. He said,
“SKY isn’t just a batter, he’s a mathematician. The way he carries himself is simply superb. He dissects the field like a mathematician uses a compass and a protractor on the paper. Suryakumar makes those calculations brilliantly inside his sharp mind and makes full use of the dimension of the ground, the pace of the bowler, etc. He literally knows exactly where the fielder is and where the gaps are. He’s so precise. They say ‘sky is the limit’ but for Surya, even SKY is not the limit.”
Once Mumbai Indians taste victory, there’s no stopping them: S Sreesanth
Mumbai Indians got off to a poor start in the 2023 Indian Premeir League, losing their first two games. However, they have made a brilliant comeback in the season. They are sixth on the table, with five wins from four matches, and an NRR of -0.373. Talking about their comeback in the tournament, S Sreesanth said,
“Once Mumbai Indians taste victory, there’s no stopping them. They have a long history of success. They’ve done it in the past and can repeat it.”
“Mumbai Indians have a very strong batting line-up, that is their strength. They are a fearless side in a run chase and they are proving it. The only missing piece in their batting was Ishan Kishan and his coming to form is a massive boost for MI,” he added.
