When will Suryakumar Yadav return?

SKY joined NCA to undergo rehab last week and may need at least two weeks to be back at full fitness. Considering he is crucial to India’s plans in T20 World Cup 2024, BCCI isn’t rushing his return.

“Every time I look at my WhatsApp’s there’s reports of other teams also losing players. We trust our medical team that they’re doing the right things. Look, if we lose one or two from fitness perspective, it is what it is. That’s important and we just have to keep on the right track and sharp on replacements,” MI coach Boucher said ahead of IPL 2024.
