According to the report, Suryakumar Yadav was ruled out until February, a major setback for India ahead of the T20 World Cup

The star batsman of T20I Suryakumar Yadav has sustained an ankle injury that could rule him out for seven weeks, a major setback for India's preparations for the 2024 T20 World Cup. Suryakumar, who has been India's stand-in captain for their recently concluded T20I series against Australia and South Africa, has reportedly suffered a Grade-II tear in his ankle.
According to the report, Suryakumar's ankle was scanned last week on his return to India from South Africa, where he had twisted his ankle during the third T20I in Johannesburg. The extent of the injury means that he will now miss the upcoming three-match T20I series against Afghanistan, which are the only remaining matches India have in the format before they play the T20 World Cup. It has to be noted, though, that the players will be active in the Indian Premier League before the marquee tournament, which is being hosted by the West Indies and the USA.
