Surya is way ahead of the batters’ pack with 861 points under his belt, with England’s Phil Salt a distant No. 2 with 802 points.

Surya, who hasn’t played since December having undergone a sports hernia surgery, is set to miss Mumbai Indians’ opening match in the IPL on Sunday after failing to clear a fitness test at the NCA. He is expected to undergo another test on Thursday, following which he could play the March 27 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
