Suryakumar Yadav produced a blistering knock in IPL 2023 on Friday, ending the wait for his maiden ton in the league. He smashed a 49-ball unbeaten ton during Mumbai’s game against Gujarat Titans on Friday night. Suryakumar, who made his debut in the league on April 6, 2012, waited 4053 days for his first three-figure score in IPL. The star batter smashed 11 fours and six sixes on the route to his knock against the Titans at the Wankhede Stadium. This was also the first century by a MI batter since 2014.

Suryakumar Yadav’s blistering century came off just 49 deliveries

Suryakumar took the bowlers and smashed them all around the par. He kept true to his ‘Mr 360’ nickname. The batter began slowly as he had only 22 runs off 17 balls after 11 overs. Surya then changed his gear and smashed a six each in the next two overs (against Alzarri Joseph and Mohammed Shami). He launched an all-in attack after the 17th over of the innings. The batter was on 53 off 34 deliveries before the final 18 deliveries of the innings and then he smashed another 50 in just 15 deliveries.

The Indian bather continued with his range of shots, hitting Mohit Sharma for 20 runs in the 18th over with three fours and a six and bringing up the first century of his IPL career. He did it in style with a six off the last ball of the innings. In the process, Suryakumar also put on another 54 runs for the sixth wicket with Cameron Green (3 not out), which came off only 18 balls.

Following his blistering knock in Mumbai, Star batter Virat Kohli gave a brilliant reaction. He didn’t waste time and took on his official Instagram account to acknowledge Suryakumar’s ton. He wrote, “Tula maanla bhau,” adding a salute emoji.
