Sourav Ganguly tweeted a bizarre message about Suryuakumar Yadav that had elements of Virat Kohli’s play. After the knock that easily assisted Mumbai Indians in winning in the ongoing IPL 2023.
The Mumbai batsman actually got back to his old self at Wankhede. Which eventually led to that absolutely spectacular innings against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday. Where he scored 83 off just 35 balls.
It seemed Suryakumar Yadav had hit a slump earlier this year for a brief period that continued into the start of IPL 2023, but how do you stop this man?
However, since regaining his form with a 43-run knock against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede. Suryakumar hasn’t turned back. Following the dismissal that easily gave MI the victory. The legendary Sourav Ganguly tweeted a remarkable message about Suryuakumar that had a hint of Virat Kohli in it.
Sourav Ganguly made an astounding tweet about Suryuakumar Yadav
Surya Kumar yadav the best T20 player in the world .. it seems he bats on a computer .. @surya_14kumar @mipaltan

With a home target of 200 runs, Mumbai Indians got off to an impressive start thanks to Ishan Kishan’s ferocious 21-ball 42. However, in the fifth over, Wanindu Hasaranga struck twice, dismissing both of the openers.
After that, Suryakumar teamed up with Nehal Wadhera. Although they got off to a slow start. It was Hasaranga who gave the former a break in the 11th over with twin sixes.
From that point on, Suryakumar was unstoppable as boundaries were hit one after another. Causing Wankhede to erupt in celebration with each hit.
Ganguly praised Suryakymar as the “best T20 batter” on Twitter shortly after the pitch. He wrote: “Surya Kumar Yadav is the best T20 player in the world. It seems he bats on a computer. @surya_14kumar @mipaltan”.
Numero Uno showing why he's the best in the world. Didn't watch it live but I'm sure this was another video game innings by him. 😂 @surya_14kumar

Did you notice Kohli’s influence in that tweet, though?
Suryakumar’s 49-ball 111 in the series against New Zealand last November prompted Kohli to tweet: “Numero Uno showing why he’s the best in the world. I didn’t watch it live, but I’m sure he had another video game innings. @surya_14kumar ”.
MI needed 8 more runs when Suryakumar was dismissed for 83 runs in the 16th over. With a six that brought up his fifty-first run, Wadhera eventually put an end to the chase in the following over.
RCB tried a variety of different combinations, but none succeeded in stopping the No. 1st-ranked T20I batter. He laced seven boundaries and six maximums in his breathtaking 35-ball knock. His highest ever in his IPL career to take MI close to the target of 200.
