Mumbai Indians were missing Suryakumar Yadav, and his absence jolted the batting order, resulting in two consecutive defeats for the five-time champions.
During the limited-overs series against West Indies, he suffered an injury and was ruled out of the remaining matches. As a result, he was not a part of the first two matches of the Rohit Sharma-led team, having not recovered fully.
However, SKY was back in the playing XI in the third contest against Kolkata Knight Riders. The 360-degree player scored 52 off 36 balls, laced with 5 fours and 2 sixes.
The veteran started slowly but went for his strokes after getting set. Suryakumar has scored the most 50+ plus scores for MI since 2017. He has registered this milestone on 13 occasions which is more than Rohit Sharma (11), Ishan Kishan (10), and Quinton de Kock (10)
