Indian captain Rohit Sharma on Wednesday wished injured batsman Suryakumar Yadav a speedy recovery. Ahead of the T20I series against Sri Lanka starting on Thursday, Suryakumar and pacer Deepak Chahar was ruled out of the series due to injuries.
He further added Suryakumar’s injury is a blow. He was in great form as we saw in the last series and he was the man of the series. But a lot of people are waiting for an opportunity and are more than happy for them to come and fill.
Also, I am a little sad for Suryakumar, as he was in such a great form and wanted to continue his stellar form.
