World number 1 T20 batter, Suryakumar Yadav was quiet with the bat for some time now. It wasn’t a good sign either for India or for Mumbai Indians. However, one can’t keep a player like Suryakumar Yadav quiet for a long time. The Mumbai Indians batter finally got back to scoring runs for the team in the last game against Rajasthan Royals. Chasing a score of 212 runs, Yadav scored a quickfire 55 off 29 that helped the team with the victory.

Ahead of the Mumbai Indians clash against Punjab Kings, Mohammad Kaif acknowledged that the franchise has always backed Suryakumar Yadav. He added that it was the result of their faith that Suryakumar Yadav has been doing so well for his franchise. Last year, the explosive batter had to miss the competition because of injury but now he is back with a bang.

Mumbai Indians always had faith in Suryakumar Yadav: Mohammad Kaif

“Mumbai Indians Always Had Faith in Suryakumar Yadav,” Says Mohammad Kaif

“Mumbai Indians always had faith in Suryakumar Yadav. They have been backing him right from the start and no one had an iota of doubt over his talent and capability. With his knock against RR, he’s proven his worth. SKY has once again proved why he’s rated so highly as a batter. These are good signs for Mumbai Indians,” Mohammad Kaif said.

Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Mumbai Indians was also pleased with how Suryakumar Yadav and Tim David assisted MI in defeating RR by six wickets. He gave the pair credit for demonstrating their abilities and thinks Mumbai has a good enough batting lineup to often chase down such totals. Despite all this, the Mumbai Indians team is still in the lower half of the points table with 8 points.

In order to keep themselves alive in the competition, not only Mumbai Indians will have to put forward their best performance. The last time the two teams faced each other, thanks to the over by Arshdeep Singh, Punjab won the match by 13 runs. In that game as well, Suryakumar Yadav had scored 57 runs in 27 balls. Punjab Kings if they win this game will take a huge jump on the points table to become the second team to have 12 points apart from Gujarat Titans.
