This news is very bad and especially scary for Mumbai Indians and their new captain Hardik Pandya. According to media reports, Suryakumar Yadav has failed his fitness test and has been ruled out of some of the IPL 2024 matches. There is also a possibility that he may not play the entire season.

What happened to Suryakumar?

Suryakumar Yadav recently suffered from a sports hernia for which he underwent surgery. After this surgery, he is going through the recovery phase. But now it has become difficult for him to play in IPL 2024 itself. According to a report, Suryakumar Yadav had a fitness test on Tuesday and failed it. The National Cricket Academy did not allow him to play in the IPL due to his failure in this fitness test.

Impossible for Suryakumar to play in the opening matches

There are reports that now Suryakumar Yadav will be given one last chance to prove his fitness. Suryakumar Yadav's next fitness test will be on March 21. It means that it is almost impossible for Suryakumar Yadav to play in the opening matches of Mumbai Indians. Because even if Surya clears the next Test, Mumbai Indians will not field him in the match immediately.

What will hurt Mumbai Indians?

Suryakumar Yadav is the world's number 1 T20 batsman. He has scored 4 centuries with his bat in T20 Internationals. His average is over 45 and his strike rate is over 170. Even in the IPL, the player runs at a fast pace and is considered the backbone of Mumbai Indians' middle order. If Suryakumar Yadav is ruled out of IPL 2024, Mumbai Indians will find it difficult to score quick runs in the middle overs.

Mumbai have Suryakumar as their backup

However, Mumbai Indians have Suryakumar Yadav as their backup. Punjab's left-handed batsman Nehal Vadera and Kerala's explosive batsman Vishnu Vinod are part of this team. Nehal was given an opportunity by Mumbai last year and the player has done well as a finisher. His bat has scored 241 runs at an average of over 26 in 14 matches. His strike rate was also more than 145.

If Suryakumar does not play, Hardik's problems will increase

Vishnu Vinod is also an excellent option. Although this player has got a chance to play only 6 matches in IPL, but this player is very talented. Vishnu has scored 1591 runs at an average of over 34 in 57 T20 innings, including a century. His strike rate is also more than 140. Mumbai certainly have a backup for Suryakumar Yadav but the franchise wants their player fit. Because if Suryakumar does not play then difficulties will increase for Hardik Pandya in IPL 2024. Likewise, there will be a lot of pressure on him this year as he has become the captain after Rohit Sharma's ouster. Now it remains to be seen what happens to Suryakumar Yadav.
