Rashid Khan, Suryakumar Yadav Set New Batting Records As MI Beat GT In IPL 2023
Suryakumar Yadav and Rashid Khan set Wankhede on fire with some brilliant strokemaking that amazed the fans in attendance. Surya smashed an unbeaten 103 off just 49 deliveries to take MI to a strong total of 218 for 5 in 20 overs. Gujarat Titans batter had a poor day in office but Rashid Khan stood out for them as his late blitzkrieg of unbeaten 79 off 32 balls was a total fun for everyone. They together broke and set batting records in the MI vs GT clash in IPL 2023
Rashid Khan smashed 10 sixes against Mumbai Indians to set record of hitting most maximums in an innings for Gujarat Titans. The record earlier belonged to Shubman Gill, who hit 7 vs LSG in IPL 2023. David Miller is third in the list with 6 vs CSK in IPL 2022.
Rashid also joins an elite list of batters who have hit most sixes in a run chase as he smashed 10 against MI on Friday night. He joins Sanath Jayasuriya (11), Adam Gilchrist (10) and Kieron Pollard (10) in this list.
Rashid Khan and Alzarri Joseph put on unbeaten 88-run stand, which is now the second-highest partnership in Men's T20 cricket for the ninth-wicket.
Suryakumar Yadav's unbeaten 103 is now the highest individual score by any batter in IPL vs the defending champions Gujarat Titans. Suryakumar Yadav, with the knock of 103 not out vs GT, now has the third-highest individual score for MI. The top of this list is Sanath Jayasuriya (114*) and Rohit Sharma 109*). Surya went past Sachin Tendulkar (100*) and Lendl Simmons (100*) to the third spot.
Gujarat Titans take a lot of pride in their bowling lineup. But on Friday, Suryakumar Yadav powered Mumbai Indians to the highest total by any team (218 for 5) against Titans in IPL.
