Suryakumar Yadav, the world’s top-ranked T20 batter, will be sitting out additional IPL matches as he continues his recovery from sports hernia surgery, overseen by the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Representing the Mumbai Indians, Yadav has been absent from the league, contributing to his team’s losses in their two recent matches.

“Surya is making very good progress and very soon he will be back playing for MI. However, he might have to sit out for a few more games, having missed the first two,” a BCCI source said.

While the Mumbai Indians feel the absence of Yadav, the BCCI is prioritizing his fitness, considering his crucial role in the upcoming T20 World Cup scheduled for the USA and the West Indies in June.

”For BCCI, the main concern is if he is on course for World T20 which he is. He will play for MI but after a sports hernia surgery, he can’t be rushed,” the source said.

Known for his diverse range of shots, the 33-year-old often draws comparisons to retired South African legend AB de Villiers. With an impressive strike rate of 171.55 in T20 cricket, Suryakumar Yadav has accumulated 2141 runs, including four centuries, in his 60 appearances for India in the format. The Mumbai Indians are set to face the Rajasthan Royals in their third match, marking their first home game in Mumbai, scheduled for Monday.
