Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh is likely to be ruled out of the remaining matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL). On Monday, Marsh suffered an ankle injury while bowling during the first match of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). It is believed that this injury is very serious, due to which he will not be able to play the remaining matches of IPL. Sources have given information about this.
Marsh got injured while bowling 5th over:
Playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Marsh came out to throw the fifth over, but he was able to bowl only four balls. He dives to stop Aaron Finch’s shot on his second ball while bowling, during this time his knee turns. After this, he was able to bowl only two balls.
On the other hand, during SRH’s batting, he came in to bat at number 10, but it looked like he was having trouble batting. Let us tell you that in this match SRH lost by 10 runs.
Dan Christian may replace Marsh in the team:
‘It was a serious injury. I am not sure that he will be able to take part in the remaining matches. However, it has not been announced officially by the team,’ team’s source said.
It is believed that if he pulls out of the team, it will be a big blow to SRH. At the same time, Hyderabad can replace 37-year-old Dan Christian, who has experience of 40 IPL matches, in place of Marsh. He can join the team as a middle-order batsman and right-arm seamer.
Mohammad Nabi can find a place in the team in absence of Marsh:
At the same time, world number one T20 all-rounder Mohammad Nabi can also find a place in the playing eleven. On the other hand, SRH captain Warner praised his compatriot Marsh for batting despite being in pain.
