Mumbai Indians will make their IPL 2022 debut against Delhi Capitals on March 27. In this match, Mumbai will go without its star batsman Suryakumar Yadav. Currently, he is recovering from a hairline fracture in his thumb.
He suffered an injury during the series against West Indies. Due to this he could not even play the T20 series against Sri Lanka. Surya is currently doing his rehabilitation at NCA. He is recovering fast but it is a bit difficult for him to play in the opening match of Mumbai. Therefore, no risk of any kind can be taken like the board medical team.
The pertinent details have been told to PTI quoting a senior BCCI source. Since Surya is the second most important batsman for Mumbai after Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians management will not want to take any risk with him.
However, it is expected that by the second match, he will make a full comeback. Because there is a gap of 5 days between the first and second match of Mumbai. The team will play its second match against Rajasthan Royals on April 2.
Suryakumar Yadav is known as 360 degree player. It is reported that Yadav will be available for the second match. He batted brilliantly against the West Indies and was adjudged “Man of the Series”.
The complete team of Mumbai is as follows-
Ishan Kishan, Devald Brevis, Basil Thampi, Murugan Ashwin, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande, Tilak Verma, Sanjay Yadav, Jofra Archer, Daniel Sams, Timal Mills, Tim David, Riley Meredith, Mohammad Arshad Khan, Anmolpreet Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Rahul Buddhi, Hrithik Shokeen, Arjun Tendulkar, Aryan Juyal and Fabian Allen
