The 13th season of the Indian T-Twenty League has just started, but the Hyderabad Sunrisers have endured a setback. Hyderabad all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was injured in the first game of the season.
On Monday, Marsh’s Uncle Trace bowed in his first over against the Royal Challengers of Bangalore, after which he had to leave the field. The team hoped that Marsh would rebound from injury, but Wednesday’s medical diagnosis not only saddened the franchise but also crushed Marsh’s heart.
According to the medical report, Marsh’s injury is severe due to which he has been ruled out for the entire season. Sunrisers Hyderabad informed about this by tweeting on Wednesday afternoon. It was also reported that Mitchell Marsh would replace West Indies Test captain Jason Holder.
Sunrisers Hyderabad wrote in the tweet that Mitchell Marsh had been ruled out of the tournament due to injury. We wish him a speedy recovery. Jason Holder will now replace him. Despite being injured in Monday’s match, Marsh mustered up the courage and came to bat, but his ankle injury, that’s why he is in trouble.
His attempts did not succeed, and he got out of the game without opening a score. Sunrisers Hyderabad lost ten runs to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in this series. This is the second time that Mitchell Marsh has had to exit the IPL halfway due to injuries.
Marsh Rising was part of the Pune Supergiant earlier in 2017. The season, he was ruled out because of a shoulder injury. On the other side, Jason Holder will play Sunrisers Hyderabad for the second time in the Indian Tea Twenty League. Holder has played just 11 games so far.
Besides Hyderabad, Holder also played for Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings. Holder, despite being an outstanding all-rounder in Test wickets, has repeatedly struggled to prove himself to be limited over tickets.
Thanks to his bad results, he lost a limited-over ticket recently. In such a scenario, it would be fascinating to see how far he will get if he has a chance to play for Hyderabad.
