Suryakumar Yadav, one of the leading batsmen of Mumbai Indians, had to be ruled out of IPL 2022 due to injury. In such a situation, Mumbai Indians have signed a new player, who will be the replacement of Suryakumar Yadav for this season. Akash Madhwal, who has played 30 home matches, will join Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians now have only two matches to play in IPL 2022.
Mumbai Indians have signed Akash Madhwal in place of Suryakumar Yadav. Akash Madhwal is not a batsman like Suryakumar Yadav. He is a bowler. He has been with Mumbai Indians as part of the support team and has now signed on to join the team for the 2022 season.
Akash Madhwal is a right-arm fast bowler and has represented the Cricket Association of Uttarakhand in all three formats of the game since making his domestic debut in 2019. Akash was selected to join the support team at MI Precision Camp and has been performing within the camp for quite some time now.
Anyway, there is nothing left for Mumbai Indians this season. The team captained by Rohit Sharma has to play two matches, but the team was out of the race for the IPL 2022 playoffs a long time ago. Five-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians have lost nine matches in 12 matches played so far this season and have won only three matches. Mumbai Indians are at the last position in the 10 team points table.
