Suryakumar Yadav of the Mumbai Indians was recovering at the National Cricket Academy after sustaining a finger injury.
Suryakumar Yadav, who has recovered from a finger injury, has joined the Mumbai Indians ahead of their second IPL match against the Rajasthan Royals, the five-time winners announced on Thursday.
Surya missed MI’s IPL opener against Delhi Capitals on March 27 because he was receiving rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy after sustaining a finger injury during the home series against West Indies last month.
“Suryakumar Yadav was released from his obligatory quarantine on Wednesday and joined the squad for a gym session with his teammates Kieron Pollard, Ishan Kishan, and Jasprit Bumrah… The camp is in a good mood “MI issued a statement.
“The squad had a strength and conditioning workout yesterday under Paul Chapman’s cautious supervision. The workout included weight and fitness training, with an emphasis on improving core fitness and strength.”
At the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai Indians were defeated by Delhi Capitals by four wickets in their IPL debut.
Due to an unbroken 75-run partnership between Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav for the seventh wicket, Mumbai were unable to defend their goal of 178.
Star India bowler Jasprit Bumrah struggled, conceding 43 runs in 3.2 overs, while Tymal Mills, their English rookie, shone, returning with figures of 3-0-26-1.
Mills bowled Delhi skipper Rishabh Pant out in his first over for MI.
DEATH BOWLING ALL ABOUT MINDSET: MILLS
Mills, who uses a variety of tactics to win slog overs, believes it all comes down to attitude.
“It’s all about the attitude when it comes to bowling at the end. When the pressure is on, you must want to bowl the tough overs. It’s something I like doing “”Says the English pacer.”
“I realise I’m not going to win every time, but when I do, it’s a fantastic feeling.”
Obviously, practise is critical so that you may be confident in your performance in high-pressure circumstances “Added he.
Mills, who has 42 wickets in the final four overs of a T20 innings at an economy rate of 7.78 and an average of 14.83 per wicket since 2018, is one of the top death bowlers in the game.
