Is Suryakumar Yadav fit to play for Mumbai Indians next match?

Suryakumar Yadav is set to rejoin the Mumbai Indians squad for their practice session at the Wankhede Stadium as they gear up for their next home game against Delhi Capitals on April 7. The team management will assess his fitness during the net session to determine his availability for the upcoming match.

Mumbai Indians have endured a challenging start to IPL 2024 under new skipper Hardik Pandya, suffering three consecutive losses. Despite setbacks against Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Rajasthan Royals, Yadav’s potential return could inject much-needed firepower into the MI lineup, providing a boost to their batting department.

The talented batsman, who holds the No.1 ranking in T20I cricket, last featured in competitive cricket back in December 2023, where he impressed with a century in the third T20I against South Africa. However, his stint was marred by a grade 2 tear of his ankle, necessitating surgery. Subsequently, Yadav underwent an operation for sports hernia, further delaying his return to the field as he underwent rehabilitation at the NCA facility in Bengaluru.

As fans eagerly await Yadav’s comeback, his inclusion in the playing XI for the next match will hinge on his fitness and readiness to take the field. Stay tuned for further updates on Suryakumar Yadav’s availability as Mumbai Indians look to turn their fortunes around in the upcoming fixtures of IPL 2024.
