Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir praised Mumbai Indians (MI) batsman Suryakumar Yadav for his half-century against Delhi Capitals (DC) at Abu Dhabi. Suryakumar made sure he takes MI to the win in the Super Sunday clash between the top two teams in IPL 2020 currently.
Suryakumar has played under Gambhir for Kolkata Knight Riders and the cricketer-turned-politician is aware of his abilities. Taking to Twitter, he posted, “Just remember the name Surya Kumar Yadav @IPL @BCCI @mipaltan @surya_14kumar”.

Seeing Gambhir’s post for Yadav, fans remembered Rajasthan Royals (RR) batsman Sanju Samson. He lauded Sanju a lot when the youngsters scored a couple of half-centuries back-to-back in IPL 2020. But ever since his failure, Gambhir hasn’t posted a tweet about Samson.
Here is how Twitterati reacted to the tweet for Suryakumar:
And forget the name Sanju Samson?

Using the draft tweet from evening match by replacing “Sanju Samson” with “Surya Kumar Yadav”. Big brain time. https://t.co/OPDFI1IY8g
