This young man was given another chance at the end of 2010 when he made his first-class debut against Delhi. Surya was certainly not in the mood to share the spotlight this time, as he scored a thundering 73, the highest of the match. Surya dominated Mumbai’s run charts in 2011-12 Ranji season, accumulating 754 runs in 9 matches at an average of 68.54 after a thrilling debut. In only his third match of the season, he smashed a double-century against Orissa and backed it up with another century in the following.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) paid INR 70 lakhs for the Mumbai player in the 2014 IPL auction. He was a member of the franchise’s championship team, scoring 164 runs in his rookie season.

In IPL 2015, he made waves when he smashed a match-winning 20-ball 46 against Mumbai Indians, overshadowing Rohit Sharma’s immaculate 98. In the 2018 IPL mega auction, he returned to the Mumbai Indians.

He received the largest pay cheque of the auction as an uncapped player – 3.2 crores. He played 16 matches in 2019 and scored 424 runs at an average of 32.61, with the top score of 71.

Suryakumar was exceptional in the IPL 2020, scoring 480 runs at 40 and striking at 145.01. He was MI’s second-highest run-scorer after Quinton de Kock as they won back-to-back IPL titles.

Suryakumar retained by the Mumbai Indians as their fourth-choice player ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. He scored 303 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 145.67 before suffering an injury and being declared out for the rest of the season.

Suryakumar, on the other hand, did not bat on his debut but made 57 in his first T20I innings in the fourth T20I match.

Suryakumar hasn’t looked back since and has advanced by leaps and bounds. He was a member of India’s T20 World Cup squad in 2021, where he played four games and scored 42 runs in three innings. India assigned a massive target of 216 to chase during the last T20I encounter in Nottingham in order to defeat England 3-0. While India’s top batting order fell early in the chase, Suryakumar’s fireworks raised optimism.

He took the assault to the England bowlers and played his strikes with such grace that he made batting look easy. During his 55-ball 117, Suryakumar hit 14 boundaries and six sixes, keeping England at bay until the penultimate over, when Moeen Ali removed the fiery Indian batter. Suryakumar retained his spot in India’s T20 World Cup squad because to good performances in bilateral series leading up to World T20 2022.
