As the anticipation for IPL 2024 accelerates, so does the preparation of one of cricket’s most electrifying batters, Suryakumar Yadav. The dynamo of the Mumbai Indians franchise is not leaving any stone unturned in his efforts to make a colossal comeback after a setback due to an ankle injury and a subsequent sports hernia surgery earlier this year.

Suryakumar, fondly known as ‘SKY’ by his fans, has been out of action following his health issues but now appears to be on track to join the Mumbai Indians for what promises to be an enthralling season. Before his injuries benched him, Yadav’s form was nothing short of spectacular; his masterful century in the third T20I against South Africa was a testament to his high-octane impact in the shortest format of the game. However, that same series, which India drew 1-1 under his captaincy, marked a temporary halt to his rise as injuries forced him to step away from the field.

Rehabilitation regime

The good news for Mumbai Indians and Suryakumar is that his recovery is on course. In fact, the cricketing star recently took to his official Instagram to share a video that stirred a buzz among the fans. The clip showcased Yadav’s workout session with a caption that resonates with his never-give-up attitude – “Kaam chalu hai doston” (Work is in progress, friends). His dedication to this regaining of fitness and form is vital not just for Mumbai Indians’ aspirations but also for his role in the Indian squad with the 2024 T20 World Cup on the horizon.

Ranked as the current No. 1 batter in the ICC Rankings for T20Is, Suryakumar Yadav’s presence in the lineup is nothing short of imperative. While there is a possibility of him missing the first two matches of the IPL 2024 season due to his ongoing recovery, a BCCI source has confirmed his expected return within the season. This will certainly buoy the spirits of the Mumbai Indians camp as they prepare to face the Gujarat Titans in their season opener on March 24 at the opulent Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Although the journey to full fitness can often be challenging and strewn with hurdles, it is evident that ‘SKY’ is determined to reclaim his spot and dazzle his fans with his exhilarating batting display. Can he soar again and help his team to an uplifting start to their IPL 2024 campaign? His form, fitness, and flamboyance hold the answer and the cricketing fraternity will be watching with bated breath.
