Mumbai’s Suryakumar ruled out of IPL

Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League with an arm injury, organisers said Monday, reports AFP. The 31-year-old, one of the leading run-scorers for Mumbai, who have been knocked out of the play-offs race, suffered the blow in his team's victory over Gujarat Titans on Friday. "Mumbai Indians batter Suryakumar Yadav has been ruled out of the TATA IPL 2022 owing to a left forearm muscle injury," the league said in a statement. The top-order batsman, who was one of four players including skipper Rohit Sharma to be retained by the franchise ahead of this year's auction, has scored 303 runs including three half-centuries in eight matches. He has played seven one-day internationals and 14 Twenty20 matches for India since making his debut last year. Mumbai, the richest and most successful side in IPL history with five titles, were winless in their first eight matches this edition. They won their last two matches (before their clash against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday) but became the first team to bow out of final-four contention.
