In the 48th match of IPL 2020 played at the ground of Abu Dhabi, the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) performed brilliantly and defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 5 wickets.
The hero of this victory of Mumbai was undoubtedly Suryakumar Yadav, who single-handedly snatched the match from RCB’s hands. Suryakumar played a beautiful inning of 79 runs off 43 balls with the help of 10 fours and 3 sixes. It was Suryakumar Yadav’s third half-century in the ongoing tournament.
Suryakumar Yadav’s red-hot form irked the Bangalore side but there was nothing that Virat Kohli & co could do as they watched on Yadav take the bowling apart.
It was a bad day for Virat Kohli on the field on Thursday – first with the bat, then with the ball. Suryakumar Yadav’s form just did not help the mood of the Bangalore skipper and left him visibly irked during the game.
Actually, this incident happened when the Mumbai Indians team was batting and Suryakumar Yadav was seen in a very good rhythm. After the 13th over of the innings was over, skipper Virat Kohli came towards Suryakumar Yadav with a ball in his hand and appeared to say something to him, but Suryukmar ignored him and proceeded to go to the other side of the crease. This video is going viral on social media.
Here are some of the clips from the match:
The Mumbai Indians team has almost fixed their place in the playoffs with their 12th win in their 12th match this season.
