Suryakumar Yadav is not only known for his wide variety of innovative shots but also for his witty sense of humour. The 360-degree batter has continued his on-field form as he has been the leading scorer for the record five-time champions Mumbai Indians with 544 runs. Recently, SKY was spotted pranking Tilak Varma when the whole Mumbai Indians squad was travelling on a flight.
Suryakumar has been a great asset for the Mumbai Indians this year as he has amassed 544 runs at an average of 41.85 and a massive strike rate of 183.78. He also has a century to his name this season which he scored against defending champions Gujarat Titans, who arguably have one of the best bowling attacks in this IPL. On the other hand, youngster Tilak Varma has scored 300 runs in his 10 appearances this season for MI.
In a video posted by the official Mumbai Indians Twitter handle, Suryakumar Yadav can be seen taking a slice of a lemon from the air hostess to prank youngster Tilak Varma, who is seen to be deep asleep on the flight. SKY squeezes the lemon in Tilak’s mouth and he wakes up from his sleep abruptly. The action receives laughter from other passengers on the plane too. The video has been captioned, "Chain se sona hai toh jaag jao 🍋🤣🥲" The video has gone viral on social media and has received more than eight thousand likes in just four hours.

Talking about Tilak Varma, he has been of the best finds for the Mumbai Indians and was also part of the India U-19 squad for the 2020 under-19 World Cup, where India finished as runner ups. Tilak scored 86 runs in three innings at the world cup and has been one of the best batters for MI in last year’s IPL as well as this year.
The Mumbai Indians too are having a great season so far as they have defeated Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator match of the playoffs. The Mumbai Indians will now face the Gujarat Titans on Friday in Ahmedabad for the Qualifier-2. The winner of this match will qualify for the final of this year’s IPL along with CSK.
