Mumbai batsman Suryakumar Yadav continued his rich vein of form in the ongoing IPL after he notched up yet another match winning knock in the cash rich league. Wickets kept on falling from the other end but Suryakumar never let Mumbai out of the hunt as he smashed 10 fours and 3 sixes en route to his blazing innings. 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 clash is going viral on social media in which Virat Kohli can be seen walking up to Suryakumar in a bid to sledge him but the top-order batsman kept his calm and walked away.
The fans took to social media and blasted Virat Kohli for his bad sportmanship and many slammed the Team India skipper for trying to sledge Suryakumar Yadav. Suryakumar was adjudged player of the match for his heroics with the bat that saw Mumbai consolidate their position at the top of the Indian Premier League 2020 points table. Earlier, after being sent into bat, Virat Kohli-led RCB could only post a below-par total of 164 for six from their allotted 20 overs. Devdutt Padikkal was the star with the bat for RCB. The left-handed opener scored 74 runs off 45 balls. Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers as he returned with figures of three for 14 from his quota of four overs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Kohli came to sledge SuryaKumar Yadav during the break and Surya left like a gentleman. This shows how desperate Virat is to win this IPL. Didn’t expect this from a player like Virat Kohli.#BCCIpolitics Rember his name #SuryakumarYadavpic.twitter.com/M5EnVmCqUZ
