Suryakumar left no area untouched with his trademark innovative shots while sharing a match-winning partnership of 116 for the third wicket with Ishan Kishan to help Mumbai chase down 215 with seven balls to spare.
Asked about his preparations for acing tough scenarios, Suryakumar said, “I always prepare for these situations, if I have to get 12 or 14 runs an over, what are the shots I can play? So when I am sitting at the innings break or when the batters before me are batting that’s what I think about.”
Suryakumar signed off by saying he should have finished off the chase as he did previously in the tournament. Though the duo fell in the backend of the chase, Tilak Varma and Tim David kept the attack going to complete the chase with seven balls to spare.
