Manoj Tiwary made a bold statement: Mumbai Indians’ Suryakumar Yadav made all the difference last night at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium as he stole the match away from Virat Kohli and co., single-handedly. Initially, with the wickets falling in quick successions, it looked like Mumbai Indians will lose the game, however, Suryakumar turned the tables and took the match away by a storm.
Suryakumar Yadav, who was not picked in the Indian team for the upcoming tour to Australia, soaked in all the pressure and turned out to be the hero of the match as he played a match-winning knock for his team. He scored 79 runs off 43 balls, smashing 10 fours and 3 sixes, and took his team to the winning sides.
Among many, former Indian cricketers and the Indian head coach Ravi Shastri also took to his Twitter and applauded the performance of Suryakumar Yadav with a special Tweet. In his tweet, Ravi Shastri asked SKY to stay strong and patient. He wrote:
“Surya namaskar. Stay strong and patient @surya_14kumar

The tweet soon went viral and was flooded with amazing reactions. However, the comment that stole all the attention came from the cricketer Manoj Tiwary. Manoj’s tweet became another talking point on the social media.
In his tweet, Manoj Tiwari expressed how he wished that Ravi Shastri was the coach of the Indian Cricket team where he scored a century. He further praised him for boosting the morale of SKY. He wrote:
“I just wish u were the coach of Indian team during the series where i scored 100.. Your message like this would have surely helped my international career. Seeing this tweet of urs #Surya will be happy.”
