The top-ranked T20I batter last featured in competitive cricket back in December 2023, where he impressed with a century against South Africa in the third T20I. However, his participation was cut short due to a grade 2 ankle tear, necessitating surgery. Subsequently, Suryakumar underwent an operation for a sports hernia, prolonging his recovery process as he underwent rehabilitation at the NCA facility in Bengaluru.

Now, the 33-year-old is set to reunite with the Mumbai Indians squad during their practice session at the Wankhede Stadium. With their next match against the Delhi Capitals scheduled for April 7, team management will assess Suryakumar’s fitness level before making a decision on his involvement.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians have encountered a rocky start to their IPL campaign under new captain Hardik Pandya, suffering three consecutive defeats. Despite hosting matches at home, losses to Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Rajasthan Royals have left the team seeking redemption.

As Suryakumar Yadav gears up to make his much-anticipated return, fans eagerly await his contribution to bolstering Mumbai Indians’ performance and turning their fortunes around in the ongoing IPL season.
