Marsh’s injury didn’t “look great”: Warner
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s star allrounder Mitchell Marsh fall victim to a ankle injury in their opening games against Royal Challenger’s Bangalore. After bowling four deliveries in his first over he felt the finger crossed. Marsh came on to bowl in the fifth over the Royal Challengers innings, but seemed to twist his ankle while attempting to field an Aaron Finch punch in his follow through. Skipper Warner said the X-ray report doesn’t seems good at the end of the match.
Marsh went out of the field, though he had to bowled two more balls hence, Vijay Shankar came to complete the over. Although, Marsh came out to bat, but he was seen visibly limping die to injury. He batted only at No.10, coming out because the Sunrisers suffered a collapse to lose the game by 10 runs.
Meanwhile, Sunrisers skipper David Warner revealed that Marsh’s injury didn’t “look great”, and said he would be going for an X-ray after the end of the match.
“Doesn’t look great,” Warner told Star, the host broadcaster. “A lot of courage from him to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight. He’s got to get an X-ray, hopefully it’s not too bad. It doesn’t look great. Obviously what you saw out there, it was quite painful, he can’t put any weight on it. Fingers crossed.”
Sun Risers Hyderabad is dealing with a huge blow as it was missing it’s star batsman Kane Williamson earlier and this time, Marsh’s absence could led the franchise in a fragile condition as it lost the first match.
