Surya Kumar Yadav comes from a middle-class family. He was born to Ashok Kumar Yadav, an electrical engineer, from Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh, who came to Mumbai to join the Atomic Energy department of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre.

At a young age, his father saw Surya’s love for the game. At 12, Ashok was told that his son has enough potential and he enrolled Surya in Elf Vengsarkar Academy. There, Suryakumar was nurtured under the able training of Dilip Vengsarkar. He went on to play at all the age group tournaments in Mumbai.

Domestic circuit

Suryakumar Yadav made his first List-A match debut in Vijay Hazare Trophy for his home side Mumbai against Gujarat. He impressed everyone and in no time he made his debut in T20s playing for Mumbai against Hyderabad in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He got a call in 2010 for first-class cricket against Delhi. Suryakumar was in sublime form, as a result, he was appointed as a skipper for Mumbai. He was also included in India A side in 2018.
The right-hander has a massive 1000-plus runs on his name at the U23 level in the 2011-12 season. He also scored a double century against Odisha in the same year.

When he first came to the ground, he was just 8 or 9. He would pick the ball and throw it back, but he would stay on the ground. We would have MCA’s U-14 nets at our ground back then. The nets were supervised by Ashok Kamath Sir. The moment he saw Suryakumar at the nets, he said this boy will go places. In the age group, he would initially get out after scoring 50 or 60. But there was this particular game at Cross Maidan and there he scored 140-odd off just 40-45 balls. And that was the start of great things,” Surya’s childhood coach Ashok Sawalkar once said.

Suryakumar Yadav’s IPL journey

Going by his early form, Mumbai Indians scouted and signed in 2012. However, Suryakumar’s full potential was never quite explored and he struggled to gain game time. After spending a long time on the bench, he finally made the switch from Mumbai to Kolkata in the 2014 IPL Auctions and things changed thereafter. Slowly but steadily, Yadav did justice to the trust shown in him by his new franchise.

He made headlines in 2015 with his quickfire runs. Looking at the form, Mumbai Indians brought him back to Wankhede in the 2018 IPL auctions. That year, Suryakumar finished as the highest run-getter in the tournament for Mumbai Indians with a tally of 512 runs. This year was another successful campaign for Yadav. He scored 424 runs for the team and was a crucial part of Mumbai’s record fourth IPL title victory. As of now (March 23, 2023), he has scored 2644 in 123 matches. Suryakumar Yadav is retained by Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023 for Rs 8 crores.
