SRH who lost their first game in the IPL 2020 took to twitter on Wednesday & announced that Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will not play remaining matches of the IPL 2020 as he has suffered an ankle injury during SRH’s first match against RCB on September 21.
During the match Marsh twisted his ankle while bowling in Monday’s match & went off the field. The Australian came to bat at no 10 & was dismissed at very first ball he faced. The SRH named West Indies Test match Captain Jason Holder as the replacement for Marsh.
SRH Captain David Warner had said after the game against RCB that the injury to his teammate doesn’t look great. “Losing Mitch (Marsh) early, hopefully, he’s okay, it doesn’t look great. A lot of courage from him to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight. He’s got to get an X-ray, hopefully, it’s not too bad. It doesn’t look great. Obviously, what you saw out there, it was quite painful, he can’t put any weight on it. Fingers crossed,” Warner had said at the post-match presentation.
SRH have been struggling with its player’s injuries early in the tournament. Kane Williamson suffered a Quadriceps injury during a training session & the team management haven’t issued any update regarding the New Zealand batsman. SRH will face KKR in their next league at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on September 26.
