Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav engaged in a game of darts and hit the bullseye in a single attempt without even looking at the target, suggested a post by the T20 franchise on Twitter. "1 attempt, no-look... @surya_14kumar hits the Bullseye?? Paltan, what do you think? Fake?? or Real??," Mumbai Indians captioned the video, in which a stylish marksman Suryakumar Yadav can be seen in action. While many fans joined the debate to find out if it is real or fake, some Mumbai Indians' fans expressed their desire to see Yuvraj Singh back in playing XI for the next match in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.
Many fans claimed it's real and displayed their faith in Suryakumar, who returned to Mumbai Indians in 2018 edition of the IPL and scored over 500 runs, including four fifties, in the last season.
