Suryakumar Yadav, despite having an enormous amount of talent, SKY took a little more time to arrive into the international arena. Such is the pool of talent in India that he had to wait till he was 30 years old to make his T20I debut. Surya was an aggressive batter right from the start of his career. But it was the IPL which turned out to be the turning point and opened the doors for him into the Indian team.
SKY started his IPL career in 2011 with Kolkata Knight Riders. He batted lower down the order at No. 6 and played some brilliant cameos there.
