IPL players earning millions, WC blind cricketers in extreme poverty: Sukhram Manjhi
The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League has witnessed some phenomenal individual performances, with players going all out to help their teams cross the line. With the top two teams, Mumbai and Bangalore battling it out in the 48th match of the league, viewers were overwhelmed with the extraordinary skills on display. Mumbai batsman Suryakumar Yadav, who pioneered his side to a clinical victory, also climbed several places in the list of Dream11 IPL top run getters.
Suryakumar Yadav has been a vital cog for defending champions Mumbai and has been instrumental in the side's success in Dream11 IPL 2020 as well. The 30-year-old has carved a niche for himself in the star-studded batting line and has succeeded in cementing his position among the stalwarts. In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Yadav once again steered his team to victory against Bangalore at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Chasing a total of 165 against the Bangalore bowling line-up was not going to be a cakewalk considering that the wicket showed signs of slowing down. Suryakumar Yadav showcased exceptional batting skills as he played the role of an anchor to perfection. The batsman displayed a wide array of strokes as he remained unbeaten on 79 to see his side home.
