New Delhi. With the progress of the matches in IPL-2023, the competition between the teams has intensified to make a place in the playoffs.

Talking in terms of MI, it has been beneficial for star batsman Suryakumar Yadav to come into form at crucial moments.

On Tuesday at the Wankhede Stadium, Surya scored an inning of 83 runs (strike rate 237.14) off 35 balls which included seven fours and six sixes. With this victory, Mumbai Indians have proved themselves as chessmasters. The team has achieved the target of 200 or more runs thrice.

Suryakumar, who scored three consecutive ‘Golden Ducks’ in the three ODI series against Australia, also had a weak start in IPL-2023.

After this, he was able to score only 1 run in the match against CSK while he was dismissed without opening an account against Delhi Capitals.

Captain Faf Duplesey (65 off 41 balls) and Glenn Maxwell (68 off 33 balls) shared a 120-run partnership for the third wicket after Virat Kohli (1) and Anuj Rawat (6) were dismissed cheaply.
