Suryakumar Yadav on MI Win: In the first match of IPL 2023 today (April 16), Mumbai Indians were captained by Suryakumar Yadav. Before the start of this match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma had a stomach ache and then Surya had to come for the toss. Rohit entered the field as an impact player in the second innings. Here the good thing for Mumbai was that as captain Surya did not let Rohit miss. He first stopped the Kolkata team for 185 runs and later easily achieved this target. After the match, he kept his reaction as a captain.
Surya said, ‘We just had to maintain the rhythm we got in the last match and the boys did the same. In the afternoon, I felt that the wicket was a bit dry but the way the batting happened here, it got settled by the evening. A target of 180-190 can be chased at Wankhede and then Ishaan took us ahead by giving us a tremendous start.
What did Surya say on his innings?
In this match, Surya also played a blistering inning of 43 runs off 25 balls. On his innings, he said, ‘I landed on the pitch absolutely relaxed. I took 6 to 7 balls in the beginning. I thought that if my eyes freeze once, I can take the team forward. Certainly in the first 7 to 10 overs you need to do smart batting and for the latter we know how many power hitters we have.
Piyush Chawla’s bowling was also appreciated
During this, Surya also praised veteran spinner Piyush Chawla. Piyush Chawla had spent only 19 runs in 4 overs while bowling tightly. He also took a wicket. Surya said about Piyush, ‘Legendary spell was thrown from his side. He comes forward under pressure. He is a wonderful person.
Mumbai Indians won by 5 wickets
Batting first in this match played at Wankhede, Kolkata Knight Riders scored 185 runs losing 6 wickets thanks to Venkatesh Iyer’s innings of 104 runs off 51 balls. In response, Mumbai’s top and middle order batsmen achieved the target in the 18th over itself, playing short and quick innings. This was the second win of Mumbai Indians in this season.
