The Mumbai Indians, five times IPL winners, have had a very bad season this season. Meanwhile, the team’s fearless batsman, Suryakumar Yadav, was also out of the tournament due to injury. Yadav had a muscle injury in his left hand. He was also out of the first matches of IPL 2022. After that he came back and hit brilliantly. After this he was injured again and was out again. Now Mumbai has announced the replacement for him.
Akash Madhwal, a left-armed fast bowler from Uttarakhand, was inducted into the Mumbai Indians in place of Suryakumar Yadav. Due to injury, Suryakumar is also doubtful to play in the T20 series against South Africa next month. Yadav’s performance at IPL 2022 was excellent.

Tilak Verma has scored the highest 368 runs. Ishan Kishan has also scored 327 runs. Although both have played 4-4 more matches than Suryakumar.
Speaking of Akash Madhwal’s acting, on the other hand, his experience is not much yet. Madhwal, 28, has taken 15 wickets in 15 T20Is with an average of 27 and an economy of 7.55. 16/3 is his best performance. Akash would like to make the most of this opportunity to meet at IPL.
