New Delhi, Apr 19: Ex-Australia cricketer Tom Moody shared his thoughts on Suryakumar Yadav's resurgence leading up to the T20 World Cup and stressed the significance of the 33-year-old gradually regaining full fitness and emphasised the necessity for him to play the entire 40 overs.

In Thursday's match against Punjab Kings (PBKS), Suryakumar brought out his trademark shots to make a fine 78 and power MI to a daunting 192/7 total. This was his second fifty-plus score this season in four games he played. Suryakumar missed the first three games for MI due to a lengthy layoff caused by an ankle injury and sports hernia surgery. Upon his return against Delhi Capitals, he faced a duck. However, in the subsequent match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, he showcased top form, hammering a 19-ball 52, the joint second-fastest fifty for MI.

Speaking on Suryakumar coming back to form with the T20 World Cup in mind, Moody praised the MI batter's 78-run knock against PBKS and said, "Yeah it's important that he slowly works back into full fitness, he needs to be playing for the whole 40 overs and that would be great. Not that he bowls or anything but for his own peace of mind and fitness for that the preparation for what is beyond the IPL.
