Suryakuma Yadav Biography
The year was 2015, and things were going exactly as per everyone’s prediction. Rohit Sharma had played a great knock at his happy hunting ground, the Eden Gardens. Mumbai Indians were cruising towards an easy victory against the side they absolutely love to play against – Kolkata Knight Riders. What was not in the prediction, was a knock by a certain Suryakumar Yadav.
The player, who happens to be a Mumbaikar, changed the complexion of the game single-handedly. His sublime shots to the leg side boundary was a visual treat to many.
