Later, he became the top run-scorer for Mumbai in the 2011-12 season of the Ranji Trophy.


He scored a splendid double-century against Orissa and a hundred in the next match in the same season. He performed equally well in the Duleep Trophy.

Suryakumar Yadav – The master of IPL:

Mumbai Indians bought Suryakumar Yadav for IPL 2012, but he didn’t get many chances to play in the tournament, as the team was already loaded with players like Sachin, Jayawardene, and Gibbs.


He played only one match in the season, and even in that match, he didn’t get the chance to bat. He remained in the same team for the next season too.

Then, in the IPL 2014, KKR bought Yadav after Mumbai released him. It became a blessing in disguise for him, as he played some wonderful cricket for his new IPL team as a middle-order batsman.


Later, he became the vice-captain of the team for the IPL 2015. Then, Mumbai Indians, again, bought him for whopping ₹3.2 Crores for the IPL 2018. He scored 512 runs in the season with a strike rate of 133.33.

In the next season, in IPL 2019, he played some excellent cricket for MI. He scored 424 runs, including 2 fifties, in the tournament.


He even scored 71* runs in the final against CSK and led his team to win the trophy. SKY is playing for MI since then. He then played for the same team for the next seasons (2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 & 2024).
