Suryakumar Yadav: MI vs GT: Suryakumar Yadav slams maiden IPL hundred as Mumbai Indians post 218/5 against Gujarat Titans | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: In-form Suryakumar Yadav smashed his maiden IPL hundred on Friday to power Mumbai Indians to a huge 218 for 5 against Gujarat Titans at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. It is MI’s fourth consecutive 200-plus total in the season.
Suryakumar played a cracker of an innings, smoking six sixes and 11 fours during his 49-ball unbeaten 103 knock.
Apart from Suryakumar, skipper Rohit Sharma (29), Ishan Kishan (31) and Vishnu Vinod (30) played their parts with the bat for the hosts after they were sent in to bat first by GT captain Hardik Pandya.
The quick-fire knocks negated the damage caused by GT spinner Rashid Khan (4/30).

India and MI skipper Rohit could not convert his start but appeared to be getting back to his usual self at the crease, hitting a few exquisite shots in his 61-run opening stand in the powerplay with Ishan Kishan (31) to lay the platform for a big total.
Rohit got off to a rapid start with two fours, but the highlight was a six over backward square leg, collecting 14 off Mohit Sharma’s (1/43) first over.
Rashid, who took his overall wickets tally to 23 to top the bowling chart, jolted MI right after the powerplay to have Rohit caught in the first slip for an 18-ball 29, which included three fours and a couple of sixes.
The second breakthrough came four balls later, with the Afghan leg-spinner trapping Kishan LBW.

Rashid continued to make inroads as he had Nehal Wadhera (15) chop one onto his wickets, but MI’s acceleration was enough to take them to 96 for three at halfway mark.
Suryakumar and Vinod then took the attack to Mohammed Shami (0/53), hitting him for 15 runs in the 13th over, before the two batters smacked Alzarri Joseph for a six each in the 12th.
Vinod perished in the 16th over as he hit a full toss off Mohit to be dismissed for a fine 30 off 20 balls (2x4s, 2x6s), having put on a 42-ball 65 for the fourth wicket with Suryakumar.

Rashid, however, kept chipping away as he snapped the key wicket of Tim David (5) in the 17th over, taking an easy return catch for his fourth wicket in the game.
But Suryakumar continued with his barrage of shots from the other end, hitting Mohit for 20 runs in the 18th over with three fours and a six and brought up his first century of IPL career 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.
