Suryakumar Yadav of the Mumbai Indians (MI) has set his sights on the Indian Premier League in 2023. The top-of-the-order batter wants to not only get his team back on track, but also win the coveted trophy next year.
The Mumbai franchise has won the lucrative event five times, making them the IPL’s most successful team. MI, on the other hand, had a forgettable season in 2022, finishing bottom with only four victories and ten losses. Mumbai have lost eight games in a row before finally breaking their losing streak in the ninth game.
“We’ve got to lift the sixth (trophy) anyhow,” a disappointed Suryakumar stated in a video published by Mumbai Indians. It’s a shame it won’t be possible this year. We’ll have to add another prize next year anyway.”
“He (Dewald Brevis) is new to the setup, so bear with him.” They’re teaching him how to lift the trophy, which is a wonderful thing.
Suryakumar had a strong season at the plate on his own. He missed the first few games owing to a finger injury, but when he returned, he left no stone unturned in shouldering the burdens. He has, however, missed the last few games owing to a forearm injury.
Suryakumar will miss the forthcoming home T20I series against South Africa since he is receiving rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.
The Mumbai Indians were unable to field a consistent lineup due to constant lineup changes. MI was the first team to be eliminated from the playoff race due to injuries, inconsistency, poor form, and a failed auction strategy.
Kieron Pollard and Ishan Kishan, for example, failed to live up to their fans’ expectations, while Jasprit Bumrah struggled for the whole of the tournament.
Mumbai Indians completed their IPL 2022 season on a strong note, defeating Delhi Capitals in their last league game and knocking them out of contention for the playoffs. Due to Delhi’s elimination, Royal Challengers Bangalore qualified for the knockout stage.
