IPL 2020: Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav showed full composure and he even kept calm when RCB captain Virat Kohli tried to interfere in his game by sledging the Mumbai Indians top-order batsman. A video from Wednesday's clash is going viral on social media in which Virat Kohli can be seen walking up to Suryakumar in a bid to sledge him but Suryakumar Yadav remains calm and walked away from the line of RCB skipper. Mumbai batsman Suryakumar showed composer as RCB skipper tries to sledge him during MI vs RCB match, watch here below.
The batsman, who grabbed everyone's attention with some decent knocks he played so far in the tournament, played another great inning, which raised the question of the selectors not being given a chance in the limited-overs format for India tour of Australia.
The incident happened on the final ball of the 13th over. After hitting South African pacer Dale Steyn for a four on the previous deliveries, MI right-handed batsman Suryakumar hit the final ball of the over towards covers where Virat Kohli was standing. The RCB skipper fielded the ball and started to walk towards Suryakumar Yadav.
Watch the full video of the incident here:
In the match, chasing a stiff target of 165 runs, Mumbai Indians got over the line with five wickets in hand.
Suryakumar Yadav was the star of the night with a blistering knock of 79 off just 43 deliveries. He hit 10 boundaries and 3 sixes in his decent inning. Suryakumar was named Player of the Match for his heroics with the bat by virtue of that Mumbai consolidated their top spot with the fine victory as the team became the first to reach to the 16 points this season of IPL 2020. Mumbai Indians have pretty much sealed their playoffs but mathematically they are still not there.
Earlier, after being sent into bat first, Virat Kohli-led RCB could only post a below-par total of 164/6 from their 20 overs. Devdutt Padikkal was the star with the bat for them. The left-handed opener played a watchful knock of 74 runs off 45 balls with 12 boundaries and one maximum. Padikkal added 71 runs for the first wicket with the new-comer Josh Philippe.
For MI, Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers as he returned with figures of 3/14 from his quota of four overs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
MI will take on DC while Virat-led RCB will play with Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next fixtures, hope so this incident won't affect both of the top-class players.
