Five times champions Mumbai Indians (MI) are going through a tough time during the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Hardik Pandya led team is yet to open their account and they are currently languishing at the last spot in the points table.

MI will face Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in Sunday’s first match. The match will be crucial for MI’s fortune to remain afloat in the tournament.

Mr 360 degree batsman Suryakumar Yadav (SKY) is expected to return to the team for the all-important match. Meanwhile, former India opener Aakash Chopra expects that SKY’s potential return will trigger a turnaround in Mumbai Indians’ fortune.

“Mumbai have come home and they will start winning at some stage at least because the team is good. Suryakumar Yadav has returned. What’s the point if the black clouds are not removed after SKY comes back? The focus should foremost be on SKY because how can the focus not be on SKY,” said Chopra on his official YouTube channel.

“SKY is an incredible player. The way MI batted in the last match against RR, although they batted well before that, you assume that Suryakumar Yadav will come and be their savior. The entire Mumbai is urging Surya to do it. So Surya bhau will be my first player to watch out for,” the former India opener added.
