Suryakumar Yadav might skip the first two T20 IPL games: Reports


MI’s Suryakumar Yadav is presently receiving rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru after being sidelined since December of last year.

Though his recuperation is proceeding as planned, Suryakumar Yadav’s participation in the Mumbai Indians’ opening two IPL 2024 games is still uncertain. Based on the right-handed batter’s current situation, the likelihood is low. Surya is presently receiving rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru after being sidelined since December of last year. In January, he had to have surgery in Germany to treat a sports hernia.

Starting on Sunday, March 24, two days after the opening match of the IPL 2024 between reigning champions Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Mumbai Indians will take on Gujarat Titans, the runners-up from the previous season. For the world’s top T20 hitter, it’s a race against time. A BCCI insider claims that Surya may not receive permission from the NCA medical team to play in the opening two IPL games of this season.

According to Surya’s Instagram account, he has been spotted performing a lot of strength and conditioning (S&C) exercises, but he hasn’t yet shared any of his batting workouts, which will show how he is progressing. On December 14, Suryakumar Yadav played in a Twenty20 international match against South Africa. He was unable to attend the DY Patil T20 Cup, when Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya made their comebacks.

“There are still 12 days to go before MI play their first game but it could be a race against time to get fit by the first match itself,” a person familiar with the matter stated.

Surya’s most recent public appearance was at Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s pre-wedding celebrations in Jamnagar.

Surya is the most important player in India’s T20 squad, with a strike rate of 171-plus and 2,141 runs in 60 games. He has four T20I hundreds to his name. Following the ODI World Cup, he guided India to a home T20I series victory against Australia.

Surya’s performance will have a significant impact on India’s hopes in the Americas T20 World Cup (USA and West Indies). Even for MI to run a successful campaign, Surya’s availability from the start is paramount.
