Mumbai, May 16: Mumbai Indians (MI) have signed Akash Madhwal as a replacement for batter Suryakumar Yadav who was ruled out of the TATA IPL 2022 owing to a left forearm muscle injury.
Madhwal, is a 28-year old medium-pacer from Uttarakhand who has played 15 T20s and taken 15 wickets at an average of 26.60. He will join MI at the price of Rs 20 lakh.
The MI will lock horns with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the penultimate league game of this season on Tuesday. The head-to-head record does not throw up any clear favourites as MI have won nine encounters to SRH’s eight in the 18 matches they have faced each other in so far. One match went to a super-over, which MI won. The last five matches though, do read 4-1 in MI’s favour.
