IPL 2024: Discomfort for Mumbai Indians (MI) has risen significantly after a few of their players are carrying injury concerns ahead of the seventeenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the latest development, star batter Suryakumar Yadav has put Mumbai Indians (MI) into the backfoot following his fitness-related issues.

Suryakumar Yadav, who is currently at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), is yet to receive clearance from the medical team to take part in the Tata IPL 2024. The batter suffered the sports hernia injury during the tour of South Africa last year. He subsequently underwent a surgery in Germany.

A source privy to the development informed that the batter will undergo an open net session on Tuesday along with some fielding drills. All this will be done under the watch of the medical team at the NCA.

The Mumbai batter’s body will be accessed thereafter depending upon which the medical team will prepare the report. If the batter undergoes all these activities without any discomfort then he will have a good chance of playing in the IPL 2024, however, if there’s any concern, then he will have to keep himself distanced from the league.

Mumbai Indians are set to play their opening game in the Tata IPL 2024 on March 24. Shubman Gill’s Gujarat Titans (GT) will be up against Hardik Pandya’s Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Narendra Modi Stadium for the opening clash.
