Suryakumar Yadav All-time IPL XI: Suryakumar Yadav has performed incredibly well with the bat in the last few editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The hardwork done for the Mumbai Indians (MI) helped the right-hander earn his maiden call-up to the India limited-overs team during the home series against England. Recently, Suryakumar Yadav picked his all-time IPL XI with some terms and conditions.
During a recent interview with Cricbuzz, Suryakumar was asked to pick his all-time IPL XI but with two conditions, one, he had to pick himself and two, only four Mumbai Indians players could be chosen. He picked the explosive pair of Rohit Sharma and Jos Buttler as the two openers. Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli will bat at number three with Suryakumar picking himself for the fourth position in the batting order. Surprisingly, the right-handed Mumbai batsman omitted MS Dhoni from his all-time IPL XI.
He went in with the trio of AB de Villiers, Hardik Pandya and Andre Russell as the finishers. Suryakumar picked Ravindra Jadeja and Rashid Khan as the two spinners in his side. The duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami will be the frontline pacers.
