Mumbai suffered a setback before the start of IPL 2022
In the Indian Premier League 2022, Mumbai will play the first match against Delhi Capitals on March 27. In such a situation, news is coming out that the important batsman of the franchise, Surya Kumar Yadav, may be out of this match. Surya had to face injury in the last match of the T20 series against West Indies. During this he had a hairline fracture in his thumb.
Suryakumar Yadav had reached the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore for rehab after a fracture in his thumb on 22 February. According to the news recently quoted by ESPN Cricinfo, so far Mumbai Indians’ explosive batsman Surya Yadav is in Bangalore and still he has not been released by the NCA. Suryakumar not being available in the first match like this can be bad news for the franchise.
These batsmen can replace Surya
In fact, if you look at the batting squad of the Mumbai Indians team, only 3 specialist batsmen playing international cricket for India are in the team. Of these, the name of Surya is also included. Along with him, Rohit Sharma, who is responsible for captaincy in all three formats for the Indian team these days, is also there. Who has made this franchise champion 5 times under his leadership. Apart from this, Ishan Kishan has also made his debut for India in international cricket.
Since the year 2019, Suryakumar has presented his character well in Mumbai’s top batting order and has also led the team to victory in many difficult situations. The performance of this franchise was a complete flop in the last season. But, this year under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Mumbai will try to achieve this trophy for the sixth time. In such a situation, in the absence of Surya, Ramandeep Singh, Anmolpreet Singh or Tilak Verma can get a chance to try themselves in the first match.
