Suryakumar Yadav is mostly known for his stint with the Kolkata Knight Riders where he was part of their title-winning campaign in 2014. However, not many are aware of the fact that Surya was with the Mumbai Indians before that and made his IPL debut in the 2012 season. The dynamic batter had then got only one game to play against the Pune Warriors and he ended up bagging a four-ball duck. Surya didn’t play a single game in IPL 2013 season.

Ahead of the IPL 2014, Kolkata Knight Riders secured Suryakumar Yadav for an IPL salary for an amount of INR 70 lakh. The team led by Gautam Gambhir trusted him to play the finisher’s role and the Mumbai lad didn’t disappoint. He performed the role to perfection smashing 164 runs in 10 innings, facing 117 balls, at a strike rate of 140.17. Surya remained unbeaten on five occasions and managed to hit 16 fours and five sixes.

Suryakumar Yadav was promoted to number four in IPL 2015 season and the man began the season with an unbeaten 46 off 20 deliveries with one four and five sixes. However, things didn’t transpire as expected for the rest of the season for him. Surya could muster only 157 runs in 13 matches for the team at a strike rate of around 139. Consequently, the team couldn’t defend the title and bowed out of the tournament earlier than expected.

Surya was back to fulfilling the role of a middle-order finisher in the KKR set up in IPL 2016. He featured in 15 matches for the side and scored 182 runs in 11 innings at an average of 26 and a strike rate of 127.27. It wasn’t a great season for Suryakumar Yadav but even then the KKR decided to persist with him in the 2017 season.

Suryakumar Yadav endured yet another underwhelming season in IPL 2017. By far, this was the worst IPL for him as it never felt like he was hitting the ball well. The dynamic cricketer played 10 matches and batted in seven innings to only muster 105 runs at a poor strike rate of 119.31. This led to KKR releasing Suryakumar Yadav ahead of the 2018 mega auction of the Indian Premier League. Since 2014, Suryakumar Yadav earned a salary of INR 70 lakh each season

This is where things took a turn for good for Suryakumar Yadav. He was bought by the Mumbai Indians in the 2018 mega auction for an amount of INR 3.2 crore and earned the same amount each season till IPL 2021. He opened the innings for MI, led by Rohit Sharma, and turned out to be a superstar player.

In IPL 2018, Surya was the top run-getter for MI and was also in the race to win the Orange Cap. He managed to amass 512 runs in 14 innings at a strike rate of 133.33. He smashed 61 fours and 16 sixes in the season and scored runs at an average of 36.57. Unfortunately, MI couldn’t make it to the playoffs and the juggernaut of Surya stopped in the league stages itself.

Suryakumar Yadav continued his brilliant run of form for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2019. He amassed 424 runs in 15 innings at an average of 32.61 and a strike rate of 130.86. He was one of the reasons why Mumbai Indians managed to win their fourth IPL title beating Chennai Super Kings in a last-ball thrilling final.

IPL 2020 was a pretty different one with COVID-19 around and the matches were played behind closed doors. Suryakumar Yadav was the second highest run-scorer for the eventual champions amassing 480 runs in 15 innings at an average of 40 at a strike rate of 145.01 hitting 61 fours and 11 sixes.

IPL 2021 was not great for the Mumbai Indians but Suryakumar Yadav stood tall for them scoring most runs for the side. He scored 317 runs in 14 matches at a strike-rate of 143.43 with 40 fours and 10 sixes.

Thanks to his exceptional performances in the earlier seasons, Mumbai Indians decided to retain him for an IPL salary of INR 8 crore. The five-time champions had a forgettable season but Surya was definitely not having one smashing runs at will. He was the third-highest run-scorer for the team mustering 303 runs at an average of more than 43 and a strike-rate of 145.67 after featuring 8 matches. 

He has been paid Rs 8 crore for the 2023 and 2024 seasons as well. 

Suryakumar Yadav performance for India

Suryakumar Yadav’s consistent groundbreaking performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL) led to selectors finally picking him for India’s T20I team. He made his much-awaited international debut in March 2021 in T20Is against England. Since then, the man has never looked back.

He has so far played 60 T20Is for India amassing 2141 runs at an average of 45.55 and a brilliant strike rate of 171.55 with four centuries and 17 half-centuries. Surya has also smashed 192 fours and 123 sixes leaving the fans in awe with his dynamic and 360-Degree batting.

When it comes to One-Day Internationals, Suryakumar Yadav is yet to make a lasting impact. He has so far played 37 ODIs after making his debut in the format against Sri Lanka in July 2021 scoring 773 runs at an average of almost 26 and a strike rate of 105.02.
