Bhuvneshwar Kumar Injury 

Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) lead bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been ruled out of IPL 2020 due to hamstring injury. While bowling the 19th over of the match against CSK after bowling the first delivery Bhuvi left the pitch due to his inability to bowl.

The remaining deliveries of the over have been bowled by Khaleel Ahmed where MS Dhoni hits a six of the fifth delivery to end the over. The match has been won by Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 runs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad holds the seventh position in the IPL points table and is in need to provide the very much needed consistency. In this situation losing their key bowler adds some pressure in their comeback progress.

Bhuvi Ruled out of IPL 2020

“Bhuvneshwar will not be able to take further part in the IPL 2020 as he has been ruled out with a hip injury. A big blow for sure as he is someone who leads the bowling unit and is also an integral part of the leadership group on the ground,” a source in the team said.

Prithvi Raj As Replacement 

However, Sunrisers have announced their replacement. Kumar will be replaced by Prithvi Raj Yarra.

“Bhuvneshwar Kumar is ruled out of #Dream11IPL 2020 due to injury. We wish him a speedy recovery! Prithvi Raj Yarra will replace Bhuvi for the remainder of the season,” Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) wrote on their twitter handle.

Sunrisers Hyderabad is set to face Kings XI Punjab on October 8th at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
