Bangla Hunt Desk: One of the major reasons behind Mumbai's success in the IPL this time is the extraordinary batting of Surya Kumar Yadav. Surya Kumar Yadav played for Kolkata Knight Riders for four years. He was also made co-captain but then left KKR to Surya Kumar Yadav. And this is the biggest mistake Kolkata has made in 13 years, claimed KKR's IPL winning captain Goutam Gambhir.
Kolkata Knight Riders released Surya Kumar Yadav in the last auction. At that time, Mumbai Indians took Surya in the team. This time in the IPL, Surya Kumar Yadav went down to bat at number three and batted brilliantly. He made 480 runs with the bat. The whole world saw the light of day in this IPL. After that Gautam Gambhir claimed that leaving Kolkata Surya was the biggest loss to Kolkata Knight Riders. However, when Surya was playing KKR, he did not bat in this position.
Gambhir also claims that there are very few selfless cricketers like Suryakumar. Surya Kumar Yadav sacrificed his wicket to save Rohit Sharma in the final yesterday. Gambhir claims that there are very few such cricketers at present. And KKR needed such a cricketer who could bat effortlessly in any position. Gambhir also claims that many cricketers may come but the Knight Riders will never find Indian talent like Surya.
