Batting and Fielding
|Birth Date||14 September 1990|
Still taking those small steps in domestic cricket, Suryakumar Yadav has already established his reputation as a prolific run-getter. The Mumbai middle-order batsman won the MA Chidambaram Trophy presented to the best cricketer at the U-22 level in the 2010-11 season. He scored over 1,000 runs in his first 11 games in first-class cricket. A part-time medium-pacer, Yadav was signed by the Mumbai Indians before IPL 2011 and represented the franchise in one match, in 2012. At the 2014 IPL Player Auction he was signed in by the Kolkata Knight Riders. Having gained the faith of his captain, the stylish stroke-maker played all games in IPL 2014 and made crucial match-winning runs in the lower-middle order and impressed with his fielding ability.
