Australian allrounder Mitchell Marsh is likely to be ruled out of the remainder of the IPL as the ankle injury he suffered during Sunrisers Hyderabad‘s opening game against Royal Challengers Bangalore has turned out to be “serious”, team sources said.
Marsh was handed the ball by SRH captain David Warner to bowl the fifth over, but he could bowl only four deliveries.
Marsh, whose career has been marred by a series of injuries, twisted his ankle in the second ball while trying to stop a drive by Aaron Finch in his follow through but managed to bowl two more balls before hobbling out.
He later, courageously, came out to bat at number 10 in SRH’s chase, but it was evident that he was finding it even difficult to stand. SRH lost the game by 10 runs.
