Surya has been away from cricket since injuring his ankle in the T20I series in South Africa last December and the surgery for a sports hernia extended his absence from cricket. The right-hander, after undergoing the knife in Munich in January, was undergoing rehab under the watchful eyes of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) medical team and finally got the clearance today.

The right-hander underwent a fitness assessment at the NCA a couple of weeks back but wasn’t able to meet the parameters to get the clearance. Both the Indian cricket board and NCA were not looking to rush him back to cricket and arranged for a practice match today to see how the body reacts after spending time in the middle.

MI would hope Surya’s return triggers a change in fortunes as the side has been struggling in the cash-rich league so far and are yet to register a win.
