Mumbai Indians may have been eliminated from the tournament after losing to Gujarat Titans in Qualifier-2 of IPL 2023, but the team’s explosive batsman Suryakumar Yadav won the hearts of cricket lovers with his stormy innings. Suryakumar played a brilliant inning of 61 runs in 38 balls with the help of 7 fours and 2 sixes. With this inning, he also crossed the 600-run mark in IPL 2023. Surya is currently sixth in the race for the highest run-scorer this season.

Second highest run scorer for Mumbai Indians

In the 16th season of IPL, Surya scored 605 runs in 16 matches at an average of 43.21 and an excellent strike rate of 181.14. With this, Surya has reached number two in the list of batsmen who have scored the most runs in the IPL season for Mumbai Indians. So far for Mumbai, there are only two batsmen who have crossed the 600-run mark in a season. Before Surya, Sachin Tendulkar did this feat in 2010.

Surya did this feat after Chris Gayle

Surya became the first Indian player in IPL history to score over 600 runs with a strike rate of over 180. No Indian batsman could do this in the last 15 seasons. Surya is the second batsman to do so in IPL. The first player to register his name in this list was Chris Gayle who did this feat in 2011.
