Jason Holder to replace Mitchell Marsh in SRH
Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the IPL 2020 due to ankle injury in their first match over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Although, it was speculated his ruling out from the tournament, this time it has finally confirmed that the all rounder won’t able to play this edition. Meanwhile, West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder is all set to replace him in the squad.
Mitchell Marsh was badly injured in the ankle in his very first over in their opening match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. After bowling four balls he left the field with injury and Vijay Shankar completed the over in favour of him. Although, he walked out to bat in a desperate situation for SRH at No. 10 and fell for a first-ball 0, trying for a big shot when the team was suffering a defeat.
Marsh was seen visibly limping to put pressure on his right leg and had to be helped off the field. Hence, SRH skipper Warner had praised his compatriot for coming out to bat despite being in pain.
“It doesn’t look great. A lot of courage from him to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight. Obviously, what you saw out there, it was quite painful, he can’t put any weight on it.” Warned had said.
Meanwhile, the West Indies Test skipper Jason Holder is set to join the team. The all rounder has played 11 IPL matches picking up 5 wickets and scoring 38 runs so far. He first played for CSK in 2013 before moving to SRH in 2014. Two years later, he went to Kolkata Knight Riders.
