The voices of fans and cricketers only amplified further after Yadav showed a stunning display with the bat, scoring a free-flowing 79* for Mumbai Indians, chasing down Royal Challengers Bangalore's target of 165.

Yadav smashed 10 boundaries and 3 sixes, reminding everyone how good an asset he has been for the Mumbai Indians franchise.
