RCB captain Faf du Plessis ended on the losing side after the bowlers couldn’t stop Suryakumar Yadav at the Wankhede Stadium.
Faf praised the star batter, calling him one of the best and greatest batters in the shorter formats. SKY came in and amassed 83 off 35 balls, laced with 7 fours and 6 sixes, as the five-time champions won the game by 6 wickets.
“He is one of the best and greatest at the moment. The bowlers can’t do anything in front of him. The variety of strokes he has is unbelievable. SKY was unstoppable, and we couldn’t do much,” he said.
Chasing 200, MI won the game in 16.3 overs. Apart from him, Nehal Wadhera amassed an unbeaten 52 off 34 balls. Ishan also played a valuable knock of 42 off 21 balls.
