Surya might take few more days to get match fit: BCCI

New Delhi, March 28: World’s number one T20 batter Suryakumar Yadav will skip a few more IPL matches as he continues to recover from a sports hernia surgery with the National Cricket Academy (NCA) keeping a watch on his progress.
Yadav, who plays for Mumbai Indians, has been missing in action in the league and his team has lost both its matches so far.
“Surya is making very good progress and very soon he will be back playing for MI. However, he might have to sit out for a few more games, having missed the first two,” a BCCI source said.
While MI is missing Yadav, the BCCI doesn’t want to take any chances with the big-hitter’s fitness as he is expected to play a huge role in the upcoming T20 World Cup in the USA and the West Indies in June.
“For BCCI, the main concern is if he is on course for World T20 which he is. Obviously he will play for MI but after a sports hernia surgery, he can’t be rushed,” the source said.
The 33-year-old often draws comparisons with retired South African superstar A B de Villiers for his range of shots. He has a superb strike rate of 171.55 in the format.
Yadav has appeared in 60 T20 Internationals for India and has 2141 runs, including four hundreds.
MI will take on Rajasthan Royals in their third game, the first at home in Mumbai, on Monday. (PTI)
