Going by his early form, Mumbai Indians scouted and signed in 2012. However, Suryakumar’s full potential was never explored and he struggled to gain game time. After spending a long time on bench, he finally made the switch from Mumbai to Kolkata in the 2014 IPL Auctions and things changed thereafter. Slowly but steadily, Yadav did justice to the trust shown in him by Kolkata board.

In 2015 he made headlines for his quickfire runs. Looking at the form, Mumbai Indians  brought him back to Wankhede in the 2018 IPL auctions. That year, Suryakumar finished as the highest run-getter in the tournament for Mumbai Indians with a tally of 512 runs.
