Early signs

Surya Kumar Yadav made his debut in first-class cricket for Mumbai against Delhi in a Ranji Trophy match in 2010. In his maiden first-class appearance Surya Kumar Yadav made an impressive 73 off 89 deliveries, hitting 15 fours. He was the only Mumbai batsman to have crossed 50 in that innings and became almost regular in the team since then. In the next season, Yadav became one of the top run-scorers of Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy, hitting a double-century against Orissa only in the third match of the season, followed by another century in the next match. But the time did not move smoothly for Yadav as his form sunk remarkably as he was able to score only 73 in first-class innings before the 30-yar old batsman returned to runs in 2014, finishing among the top three run-scorers for Mumbai. Surya Kumar Yadav has played in 77 first-class matches and scored 5326 runs at an average of 44.01 including 14 centuries and 26 fifties and the highest score of 200. The batsman also has gathered 2779 runs in 98 List 'A' matches at an average of 37.55 including his best score of unbeaten 134.

But he managed to score only 5 in the match. Still, Yadav has scored 3656 runs in 173 matches in the domestic T20 at an average of 31.79 including his highest score of unbeaten 94. His consistent show in the domestic T20 game has rewarded him the deserving call-up in the Indian squad for 3 T20 International matches so far and Yadav has scored 89 runs at an impressive average of 44.50 and a strike rate of 185.41. In his T20I debut against England on 14th March 2021, the batsman struck a splendid 57 that was hugely praised by India captain Virat Kohli.
