Suryakumar Yadav, who was once overlooked for India’s tour to Australia, smashed an unbeaten half-century to help Mumbai Indians whip Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Suryakumar showed composure and he even kept calm when RCB captain Virat Kohli tried to put him off his game by sledging the Mumbai Indians batsman. A video from Wednesday’s conflict is going viral on social media in which Virat Kohli will also be seen walking up to Suryakumar in a tender to sledge him but the top-order batsman kept his calm and walked absent.
