Written by Mohan Sharma

Fit-again star batter Suryakumar Yadav has joined the Mumbai Indians ahead of their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 match against Rajasthan Royals. Mumbai Indians confirmed in a statement that Suryakumar has recovered from his finger injury.

Surya, who was undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy, after suffering a finger injury during the home series against West Indies last month, missed MI’s IPL opener against Delhi Capitals on March 27.

”Suryakumar Yadav exited his mandatory quarantine and joined the team (on Wednesday) for the gym session in the company of his mates Kieron Pollard, Ishan Kishan and Jasprit Bumrah… The mood in the camp is upbeat,” MI said in a statement.

”The team underwent a strength and conditioning session yesterday under the watchful eyes of Paul Chapman. The session involved weight and fitness training, with the focus on working on core fitness and building strength.”

Mumbai Indians had lost to Delhi Capitals by four wickets in their IPL opener at the Brabourne Stadium here. Mumbai failed to defend 178 as Delhi shot off the target in just 18.2 overs, thanks to an unbroken 75-run stand between Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav for the seventh wicket.
