Suryakumar Yadav’s old tweet, in which he is praising Royal Challengers Bangalore and Indian team captain Virat Kohli, is going viral. Suryakumar scored an unbeaten 79-run knock in the IPL-13 on Wednesday night to give Mumbai Indians a stunning five-wicket win over Bangalore. This innings came when Suryakumar was not selected in the Indian team for the tour of Australia, despite the selectors consistently performing well.
Suryakumar’s tweet is from March-2016, in which he wrote, "Big responsibility. Where there is pressure. I have seen God batting at number 3 for India. Virat Kohli."
