Despite being a late bloomer, Suryakumar Yadav often becomes the talk of the town due to his unparalled skillset for T20 cricket. No wonder the 33-year-old ranks at the top of the ICC Rankings among batsmen, and he will be once again in focus when India will begin their journey in the USA for the T20 World Cup 2024.

However, SKY had plenty of injury headaches lately, which even forced him to miss a few matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Mumbai Indians for two consecutive seasons. Still, he has managed to recover, and has got back to his very best before the mega event, and Shwetha Bhatia, his personal dietitian, who is also the founder of 'Mind Your Fitness' shared the story about him.

"If you look at him, he is looking much leaner and stronger and little muscular, and diet was planned with supplementation to achieve that goal. Coordination between recovery rate and muscle gain rate, so we adjusted to achieve that in record time," dietitian Shwetha Bhatia, founder of 'Mind Your Fitness', who has worked on Suryakumar's nutrition for some time, told PTI during an interaction.

SKY was unavailable for India for four matches since December due to ankle operation and sports hernia surgery. Yet, he managed to be in shape, and Bhatia went on to add how exactly he managed to do that.

"Overall by now, 14-15 kg, there was slight increase in his weight after surgery, which is a natural medical reaction not because he was off diet," Bhatia explained. "Out of 15 kg that he shed, Dexa machine will confirm that 13 kg will be fat."

SKY will be in action for sure when India will take on Bangladesh for the T20 World Cup warm-up match later on Saturday at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York.
