Sunrisers Hyderabad’s senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar was on Monday ruled out of the continued IPL with a thigh muscle injury which could also end his hopes of being a neighborhood of the Indian team’s tour of Australia later this year. Bhuvneshwar sustained the injury while bowling the 19th over of Chennai Super Kings’ innings during their October 2 clash here and hobbled out of the sector after only one delivery.
“Bhuvneshwar Kumar is out of IPL with a thigh muscle injury. it’s probably a grade 2 or 3 injury, which could mean that he would be out for a minimum of 6 to eight weeks. it’d effectively rule him out of India’s tour of Australia,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
Bhuvneshwar had been in decent form during this year’s IPL with an economy rate of but 7 in four games with three wickets. His injury are going to be a huge blow to SRH skipper David Warner as he struggles for quality death bowlers in his side which is brief on experience.
In the case of Bhuvneshwar, he might stay back within the UAE because the Indian team’s physio Nitin Patel is additionally there as a part of the BCCI’s medical team.
Being a centrally-contracted player, Bhuvneshwar’s rehabilitation is going to be entirely taken care of by the BCCI.
However, for the past one year Bhuvneshwar has been mostly out, thanks to a side strain and hamstring injuries, and only recently, made a comeback during the IPL. he had missed the New Zealand tour earlier this year.
With this current injury, his readiness to return to competitive cricket after breaking down every three months during the last one year could raise eyebrows about the injury management process.
India are to play four Test matches during the tour of Australia at year-end.
