Suryakumar Yadav is expected to miss the Mumbai Indians’ opener against the Delhi Capitals

Suryakumar Yadav will be unavailable for Mumbai Indians’ Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 opener against Delhi Capitals, according to the latest developments. The highly anticipated battle is slated for March 27 at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium. However, it appears as though the five-time champs would be missing their regular third batsman, Suryakumar Yadav.

According to reports, the 31-year-old is still recovering from a hairline fracture on his thumb. He got the injury during last month’s T20I series against the West Indies. He was then ruled out of the ensuing Twenty20 International series against Sri Lanka. While the dasher is now receiving rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore, doubts about his participation in the opener loom.

As a result, MI must have high expectations of the swashbuckling batter. Suryakumar, fortunately for the Mumbai Indians, is almost guaranteed to play in MI’s second game against the Rajasthan Royals on April 2. “I believe he would be 100 percent match fit by the second MI game. If he does not play in the first game, it is more likely to be a preventative measure,” the insider stated. It should be mentioned that Suryakumar has been on fire recently and will be important in MI’s success.
