Mitchell Marsh had picked up the injury after SRH captain David Warner asked him to bowl the fifth over of the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Marsh could not complete the over as he injured himself in the second delivery while stopping a drive from his countryman and skipper Aaron Finch. He, however, went on to bowl to more deliveries before pulling out of the over.
“It seems a serious injury. I am not sure if he (Mitchell Marsh) be able to compete in any of the matches,” a team source told PTI
“It doesn’t look great. A lot of courage from him to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight,” Warner told Star Sports.
“Obviously, what you saw out there, it was quite painful, he can’t put any weight on it,” Warner had said after the match.
Kane Williamson to be injured
Another big blow for SRH that Kane Williamson has also injured during the training and didn’t play the yesterday’s match. But SRH is hoping that he will fir for the upcoming matches.
Kane Williamson is not fit, he hurt his quad (quadriceps) while training the other day and (with) Mohammad Nabi. We felt playing two spinners here. Given the thought process, we wanted to chase which probably was not an option if we got stuck the other way, so we went with bowling all-rounder hitting the wicket as hard as we could,” Warner said in the presentation ceremony.
