Suryakumar Yadav scored an unbeaten 79 off just 43 balls, while RCB skipper Virat Kohli lost his cool and resorted to sledging MI batsman Suryakumar Yadav. Having done extremely well in domestic cricket and in IPL, Suryakumar Yadav’s knock came just two days after he received the heartbreaking news of not making it to the India squad for the tour of Australia.
Shockingly, the selectors decided against picking him as His knock of 79 came off just 43 balls and was studded with 10 fours and three maximums as Mumbai Indians chased down 165 with five balls to spare.
The incident started when Kohli decided to engage Surya into banter around the 13th over of the chase when the RCB skipper picked up the ball and walked to the batsman and said a few words.
I don’t know whether it was about the selection or not but what Kohli has done today was not in good taste.
No matter why Naseeruddin Shah called him world’s worst behaved cricketer.

MI beat RCB by five wickets as they chased 165 in 19.1 overs, while Surya’s knock also earned him the player of the match. But things didn’t end there as former Mumbai Indians spinner Harbhajan Singh took to Twitter to give the Indian selectors a timely reminder of Suryakumar Yadav’s batting abilities. Harbhajan hailed the latest knock from the batsman while taking a dig at the selectors as he tweeted:
Don’t know what else @surya_14kumar needs to do get picked in the team india.. he has been performing every ipl and Ranji season..different people different rules I guess @BCCI I request all the selectors to see his records

Kohli was staring at Suryakumar Yadav and Yadav did not take his eyes off the RCB skipper either. Later Kohli came and stood right next to the Mumbai Indians batsman before the latter decided to walk away without saying anything as he left the RCB skipper red-faced.
Over no: 9.6 … That’s the reason behind the stare of SKY😏…. Kohli can abuse players, but in return no one should stare at him🥱🥱😴#Suryakumaryadhav #sky #ViratKohli #MIvsRCB #mumbaiindians #mi #BCCIpolitics pic.twitter.com/LZbqfTKnhy
