KXIP have played 9 matches so far in IPL 2019 and has performed seemingly well. They have won 5 matches so far and are at 4th position at points table with 10 points. Yesterday was 32nd match of IPL 2019 between KXIP and RR. KXIP won the match but their victory was affected by injury of their two players yesterday.
As we reported earlier, that Moises Henriques was unlucky as he missed his debut for KXIP due to ankle injury yeterday. The other player is Mujeeb ur Rahman who suffered injury while playing in yesterday match. Henriques picked up an ankle injury during fielding drill ahead of the match whereas Mujeeb suffered a shoulder injury following a valiant effort while saving a boundary during the match. Mujeeb, who has bowled three overs by then, had to be replaced by substitute Sam Curran in the second innings after he felt discomfort in his shoulder following his valiant effort in saving a boundary.
However, in post match presentation Ashwin said that Moises is okay but Mujeeb status is unclear. He said “Most of the changes are actually forced, we got Moises into the eleven today. He was actually handed the cap but unfortunately, he got injured in the last minute. Miller wasn’t playing but he came in and played a vital hand for us, he took a couple of catches as well. We are waiting on Mujeeb’s status (injury) and Moises seems okay.”
KXIP will play their next match against Delhi Capitals. Both Moises Henriques and Mujeeb ur Rahman will be hoping to make their comeback in this match. Recently KXIP lost one of their highly anticipated player Varun Chakarvarthy due to injury. They bought him at a whooping price of Rs 8.4 Cr. KXIP cannot hope to lose any other player now.
