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.
