A flamboyant right-handed batsman from Mumbai, Suryakumar Yadav can be considered as another fine product of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Suryakumar is counted as one of the finest batsmen of the current Indian generation and the Mumbai-born promises of a bright future ahead.
Yadav kickstarted his journey in the Indian cricket fraternity in 2010 as he made his first-class debut against Delhi during the 2010-11 Ranji season. Suryakumar accumulated decent numbers in the domestic circuit across all the formats. However, the right-hander failed to capture the attention of the national selectors.
A good performance in the domestic circuit resulted in Mumbai Indians giving Yadav his first IPL contract in 2011. During his stint with Mumbai, the batter didn’t get many chances to play on the field but he received the golden opportunity of picking the brain of some of the legends of the game including Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Rohit Sharma, and many more.
It was the IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders who realized the true potential of Suryakumar Yadav. KKR utilized the batter as a lower-order finisher. Good numbers in the T20 Championship helped Surya in gaining the limelight and he found himself making a comeback in the Mumbai camp in 2018.
Who is Suryakumar Yadav’s wife Devisha Shetty
After 2018, there has been no looking back for the top-order batsman as he has now successfully established himself as a vital force behind MI’s success in the recent past. A spectacular performance for the Indians resulted in Suryakumar making his debut for India during the England tour of India 2021.
Yadav is currently enjoying a purple patch in his cricket career and some credit for the same goes to his wife as well. Devisha Shetty has perfectly essayed the role of a supporting wife for the cricketer as she has been there with him through thick and thin.
The couple met each other in 2012 and dated for a couple of years. It was in 2016 that they tied the knot by following South Indian traditions. Notably, Devisha hails from a South Indian family and is a dance coach by profession.
