Mumbai Indians lifted the IPL trophy for the fifth time by defeating the first time finalists Delhi Capitals in the finals of the IPL 2020 and once again MI batsman Suryakumar Yadav performed in an exemplary manner throughout the tournament. Suryakumar who plays for Mumbai in the domestic cricket scored 480 runs in 16 matches for his team including four fifties in the tournament and majority of the cricket lovers were quite sure that he will certainly get a berth in the Indian team for the Australian tour. But the selectors didn’t include him in the squad which made many people unhappy and some of them alleged that the selectors are pretty harsh on the talented batsman. Suryakumar Yadav was also disappointed as he has been waiting for the national call for a long time now.
In a contest between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore, SKY got involved in a verbal duel with the RCB skipper Virat Kohli and many felt that this incident happened because Suryakumar was angry with Virat Kohli and the selectors for not selecting him. Though Suryakumar Yadav praised Virat Kohli many times earlier, in fact once he had called him “God” too, recently he did something which infuriated cricket fans, especially the followers of Virat Kohli.
Just like other cricketers, Suryakumar Yadav is also active on social media networks and recently he liked a tweet which trolled Virat Kohli and the selectors. The controversial meme is made from a scene of a Tamil movie entitled “Master” and it showed Rohit Sharma fighting the selectors, Virat Kohli and haters. Suryakumar soon realized that he made a mistake by liking the tweet and he unliked it but many people had seen it by then and some also saved the screenshots.
Suryakumar Yadav was trolled left and right by fans of the Indian skipper and now the MI batsman has tried to do damage control by commenting on the tweet made by Virat Kohli.
Virat posted a video from his practice sessions in Australia with the caption, “Love test cricket practice sessions” with two heart emojis.

On this, Suryakumar Yadav commented, “Energy Sound can’t wait to watch Domination #theBrand” with fire emojis in between the words.

The Indian team will be playing three ODIs and the same number of T20Is in Australia along with four test matches. However, Virat Kohli will be a part of the Indian squad for the first test match only as he will return India after that on the paternity leave.
