As per the BCCI sources, SKY will miss the upcoming T20I series against South Africa. The right-hander has established himself as one of the key middle-order batters in the Indian unit, and it will be a huge miss for India if Suryakumar fails to recover in time.
Mumbai Indians had recently stated Surya’s medical condition and ruled him out of the remainder of the IPL season.
