Washington Sundar Ruled Out Of IPL 2023 Due To Hamstring Injury: Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 due to a hamstring injury. The franchise confirmed the news on Thursday, adding that they are yet to announce a replacement for the spin-bowling all-rounder.
Sundar has been a mainstay in the Sunrisers team this season but has not been in peak form. In seven matches, he scored 60 runs at an average of 15 and took three wickets at an average of 48.66 and an economy of 8.26 before being ruled out. The Tamil Nadu player had also suffered a split webbing in his bowling hand during the last IPL.
The 22-year-old was signed by the Sunrisers for Rs. 8.25 crore in the IPL 2022 auction. His withdrawal is a huge blow to the Sunrisers’ chances of making it to the playoffs this season, as they are currently at the bottom of the points table with just two wins in their last five games. The Aiden Markram-led team is scheduled to play against Delhi Capitals in the league next.
Sundar is an important player for the Sunrisers, and his absence will be felt by the team. He is a skilled spin-bowler and an excellent batsman and has contributed to the team’s success in the past. The franchise is yet to announce a replacement for him, but they will have to act fast to find a suitable replacement.
The IPL 2023 has been hit by several injuries this season, with many players being forced to withdraw due to various reasons. The teams have been struggling to find suitable replacements, and the absence of key players has affected their performances on the field.
It remains to be seen how the Sunrisers will cope with Sundar’s absence, but the team will be hoping that they can find a replacement quickly and bounce back from their recent losses to make it to the playoffs. For now, all eyes are on the franchise as they prepare for their next match against Delhi Capitals.
