SKY smashed an unbeaten 103 off 49 deliveries at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, collecting 11 fours and six maximums along the way and bringing up the three-figure mark with a six off the last delivery of the MI innings. His blazing knock helped power the five-time champions to a formidable 218/5 after being invited to bat by GT skipper Hardik Pandya.

Such was the impact of his knock that he was swarmed by members of the opposition, including leading bowlers Rashid Khan and Mohammed Shami, after bringing up what is the fourth century of the season so far.
“We have seen 200+ have been chased here, but SKY was unbelievable. It is hard to bowl to him and some of the shots he played were unbelievabl,” Rashid said after the innings.
Surya was off to a shaky start early in the season, having struggled in the home season for India before the IPL, but has since regained his old form and has quickly moved into the top three in the run-scorers’ list with four half-centuries and a century to his name.
The blazing knock naturally created quite the buzz on social media, with both cricketers and fans left awestruck by SKY’s sheer domination of the bowlers and the effortlessness with which he collected fours and sixes. Here are some of the reactions to his century:
Take a bow, @surya_14kumar ! His maiden IPL ton, and in just 49 balls – an absolute masterclass in batting. MI has set a competitive 218. Can they defend this against a charged up GT? #IPL2023 #MIvGT
