Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan failed to score 100 on Friday, but the way they played against the SRH bowlers was a pleasure to watch. The former South African captain praised both players.
Mumbai’s Indians failed to qualify for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 playoffs on Friday despite winning the league stage final against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi. They set a gigantic goal of 236 runs and were required to limit the Sunrisers to no more than 65. MI won the game, but 42 runs, as SRH scored 193/8 during the chase.
Mumbai has shown colossal performance on impressive strikes by Suryakumar Yadawa and wicket-batman Ishan Kishan. The latter opened the serve and scored 19 goals in half a century. While he scored 84 goals with 32 goals, Suryakumar saved 82 rounds with 40 assists.
The duo couldn’t score a hundred, but the way they played with the SRH bowlers was a pleasure to watch. The former South African captain praised both players. During a conversation with Krikbuz, the former cricketer said that Suryakumar’s kick was a perfect example of how to exploit the gaps in the opposition pitch.
“The way he did it was very calculating. It was a great understanding of how to manipulate the ball, direct the ball to specific areas to take boundaries. Don’t overdo it. It wasn’t a cudgel, ”Pollock told Cricbuzz.
Pollock also expressed the opinion that Mumbai made an excellent decision to move Ishan Kishan in order, as this is the most suitable position to accommodate a brave young man.
“They also got the job of Ishan Kishan right. I think he is better suited for the first six overs when he goes with the ball, if he makes a mistake, he still clears the field and he can continue his fun way, ”said Pollock.
“It’s great news for India that they have points, but are there any of these two performances? Where do they play? “- he asked further.
Before heading to the World Cup, India will face England and Australia in warm-up games. The team management will certainly try to try different combinations to get the right idea of how to put up a strong XI in the main event.
