Watch: Sourav Ganguly's Reaction After Suryakumar Yadav Demolishes Virat Kohli's RCB

Suryakumar Yadav, who has just returned to form, had one of the best batting performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL), smashing a 35-ball 83 to end Royal Challengers Bangalore’s chances of making the playoffs.

In the encounter on Tuesday, Surya seemed invincible as he smacked the RCB bowlers all over the pitch. Surya’s outstanding performance against the Royal Challengers captivated the world, and even former India captain Sourav Ganguly praised him on Twitter as the “best batter” in T20 cricket worldwide.

Suryakumar appeared to be at his most dashing. In just 35 balls, he scored 83 runs, including seven fours and six sixes. In a 200-run chase, his innings helped MI to a six-wicket victory. The powerful batsman had no choice but to be lauded by the cricketing world.

The finest T20 player in the world is Surya Kumar Yadav, it seems like to be he bats on a computer. @mipaltan @surya_14kumar,” Ganguly wrote.

Even Mumbai Indians replied to Ganguly’s tweet, writing: “From Dada to Surya – only respect”

Suryakumar has 3,020 runs in his IPL career at an average of 30.82 and a strike rate of 141.45. Twenty half-centuries have come from his bat, with his highest total being 83.

It was recently seen that Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly have unfollowed each other on social media, and it is well known that the two legendary cricketers have been engaged in a long-running cold war that is now very popular.

Given that Suryakumar’s innings was a key factor to RCB’s defeat in this match, Ganguly’s tweet may be an attempt to point out Kohli as his team got defeated.
