SKY showed how easily a team can chase says Suresh Raina

Suryakumar Yadav

Surya Kumar Yadav scored 83 runs in 35 balls which included 7fours and six sixes. This knock of SKY helped Mumbai Indians to chase the target of 200. They chased the target against Royal Challengers Bangalore so easily. The contributions from the bat were from all Indian youngsters Nehal, Surya, and Ishan Kishan.

“Surya Kumar Yadav’s celebration showed how easily a team can chase down 200 runs. He’s in great form and it reminds us that MI know how to chase targets and come back. They’ve won the trophy five times and they have a match-winner in their locker room every year. Whether it’s Tilak Varma, Wadhera, Greene, Tim David, and the biggest is Piyush Chawla. He always bowls in important moments to get MI wickets. This is the reason why they dominate the IPL. Rising from 8th to 3rd in the standings is not something every team can do,” said Raina. 

Graeme Smith on Mumbai’s team performance said that

“We’ve talked about the importance of two points tonight. MI, I was just thinking, I can’t remember them playing a great game this season, but, somehow they found themselves in third position on the log. Tonight’s two points were the key. They had to chase 200 and the bowlers looked out of sorts. But tonight, there were a number of positives for them. Catching needs to improve but the second half with the ball is where they won the game. They’re a great chasing team, strong batting unit, and they showed their dominance with some excellent performances.”
