Surya likes a meme trolling Kohli; unlikes it later
Mumbai Indians’ star batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the top run-scorers in the thirteenth edition of the IPL. The flamboyant batsman has impressed everyone by playing a wide range of shots in the league. Cricket experts and commentators heaped praise on ‘SKY’ for his style of batting.
Harbhajan Singh had once told that Suryakumar is India’s AB de Villiers. Despite giving all his efforts in domestic and in IPL, he was still not picked by the national selectors. However, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly urged him to be patient while also adding that ‘time will surely come for him’.
Having played 16 matches for Mumbai Indians in the last season, he scored 480 runs at an average of 40. He hit four fifties so far and registered his best score of 79* against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore. The star batsman also maintained a good strike-rate of 145 throughout the season.
Surya likes a meme trolling Kohli
It is quite common for all of us to see memes on social media. The cricket fans are so creative as they come up with a new concept in the form of memes. Recently, one of the fans took to Twitter to share a controversial meme that includes Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and BCCI selectors.
The photo was taken from Kollywood movie teaser ‘Master’ which went viral all over India as soon as it was released on YouTube. According to the meme, actor Vijay who is posing like Master was depicted as Rohit Sharma while the ones who are standing behind him are depicted as BCCI selectors and Paper captain – Virat Kohli.
The meme started spreading on Twitter and it also caught the attention of Suryakumar Yadav. It seems that the Mumbai cricketer was impressed by the meme and he liked it. However, after realising that the meme was an indirect dig at Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav immediately unliked it.
Suryakumar and Kohli faced off against each other during the group stage match between MI and RCB. RCB captain tried to sledge Surya but the latter remained silent and continued with the task of carrying his team on his shoulders.
He took the bowling attack to the cleaners and played the best knock in his IPL career. Sky registered his highest score during the game. He was also named the man of the match for his heroics. After the match, he performed ‘Calma’ celebration.
