Rohit, Hardik join MI squad in Mumbai

Mumbai: Mumbai Indians posted a video of its skipper Rohit arriving in Mumbai on its official Twitter handle.

Earlier in the day, Hardik, Krunal and Suryakumar had linked up with the MI squad.

While Krunal made his ODI debut in the series, Suryakumar failed to make the playing XI in all three matches. Suryakumar had made his much-deserved India debut in the T20I series against England. The 30-year-old produced a sensational half century on his debut.

Firstly really happy and very proud to represent India. It was always my dream to play for the country. It feels great and I was really happy to be part of such an amazing unit,’ Suryakumar said in a video posted by the franchise.

“And now, that role is over and I am back to my Mumbai Indians family. Looking ahead to unbelievable times ahead,” he added.

Defending champions MI will take on Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in the tournament opener to be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on 9 April.
