Shami and SKY Injured. Mohammed Shami and Suryakumar Yadav are expected to be out a little longer due to their respective injuries.

In a pretty big setback for Indian cricket, the star-injured duo of Mohammed Shami and Suryakumar Yadav, who were not part of the squad for the T20Is against Afghanistan, will remain absent longer from the scheme of things. Veteran pacer Shami has been out of action since the World Cup final and missed the tour of South Africa due to an ankle injury. Shami was included in India’s Test squad against the Proteas but the disclaimer was ‘subject to fitness’ and was pulled out a week before the start of the Boxing Day Test in Centurion as he did not get clearance from the BCCI’s medical team.

The latest on Shami is that the NCA-bound pacer is yet to resume bowling and, in all likelihood, will not be fit for at least the first two Tests against England starting January 25 in Hyderabad and February 2 in Vizag respectively. “Shami hasn’t even started to bowl, he will have to go to NCA and prove his fitness. He looks doubtful for the first two Tests against England,” The Indian Express quoted a source as saying.

Suryakumar is to undergo surgery for a hernia

India’s premier T20 batter Suryakumar is another casualty in the list. The No. 1-ranked T20I batter in the world, Surya twisted his ankle during the 3rd T20I against South Africa and hasn’t featured since. In a fresh blow, Surya hit by a double whammy and now needs surgery for hernia which he has been down with for a while. Already expected to be out, SKY’s new injury setback can take up to two months for him to return to full fitness.

“In Yadav’s case, he will take more time than expected. After his hernia operation, it might take up to eight weeks for him to start training. Hopefully, he will fit during the IPL,” the source

Is SKY’s IPL in danger?

While the above report is positive about Surya’s participation in the Indian Premier League 2024, a contradictory piece of information states Surya might be missing the initial bit of the IPL’s 16th season for Mumbai Indians.

“SKY recently diagnosed with a sports hernia. He is currently recuperating at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. In two to three days, he will fly to Munich, Germany, to get operate on. It means that he certainly won’t be playing for Mumbai this season in the Ranji Trophy and is likely to miss the initial games for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL. With the T20 World Cup in June, Surya will be giving all the time to recover properly. He is crucial to India’s chances in the T20 World Cup,” a report carried out by Times of India, quoting its source, stated.
