Suryakumar Yadav Scores Debut Hundred in IPL 2023

Mumbai Indians’ Suryakumar Yadav continued his sublime form in the Indian Premier League, this time notching up his maiden hundred of the tournament against Gujarat Titans in Mumbai.

Batting at No. 3, Surya took his time to settle, but once he looked set, he took on GT’s bowling attack, smashing the likes of Mohammed Shami and Alzarri Joseph all over the ground.

Yadav’s innings comprised 11 fours and 6 sixes, with the last one helping him reach the milestone for the first time in the Indian domestic league.

GT’s Rashid Khan was the standout bowler, as he picked up four wickets for 30 runs at a time when the other bowlers were struggling.

Playing an unbeaten innings of 103* off 49 balls, Suryakumar stitched up a 65-run partnership with Vishnu Vinod (30 off 20 balls).

Suryakumar has previously represented Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL, and was bought by the Mumbai-based franchise in 2018. Ever since, he has been one of the key foundations of the outfit.
