Hand Injury Rules Suryakumar Yadav Out Of The Tournament
Suryakumar Yadav has suffered yet another injury blow. The latest injury has put an end to his campaign in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022). The right-handed batsman was injured at the start of the tournament too. Suryakumar missed Mumbai Indians’ first two matches of the competition owing to a hand injury. And his latest injury is also a hand injury. Suryakumar has suffered the injury in his left forearm muscle.
He had sustained the injury while playing against Gujarat Titans on May 6. The franchise hasn’t named any replacement for now. Suryakumar was one of the few positives for Mumbai Indians in an otherwise forgettable campaign in IPL 2022. The five-time champions just could not hit the top gear and were the first team to be out of the playoffs race. Earlier in the season, they became the first team to lose the first seven games in IPL.
The Rohit Sharma-led side suffered yet another defeat after that before opening their account. Following the 8 successive losses, they registered wins against Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans. With four games now left in the season for Mumbai, the franchise would be looking to exit the competition on a high. They can also play the role of party-poppers. With absolutely no pressure on them, the most successful team in the history of the league can surely ruin a few teams’ chances of progressing to the playoffs.
Suryakumar Yadav’s season:
Unlike Mumbai Indians, Suryakumar Yadav had a decent outing in the tournament this year. After recovering from the hand injury, he hit the ground running and played some fine knocks. In eight matches, he scored an impressive 303 runs at an average of 43.29. He also scored three fifties in the competition. Suryakumar is currently the second highest run-getter for the franchise.
