Sunriser’s Hyderabad (SRH) may have won the game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday, but the team took a major blow when pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar was injured and walked the field in the 19th. . After the match, SunRiser’s Hyderabad skipper David Warner said he was not “not too sure” of the extent of Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s injury while on the field and that he should contact the physio.
“I’m not so sure, I have to talk to the physio, can answer this question if we have more information,” Warner said in the press conference after the game.
Bhuvneshwar’s left thigh injury did not allow him to complete his over. The right-handed bowler tried to straighten his leg, but broke off his run twice and limped off the field.
Khaleel Ahmed then had to bowl the remaining deliveries from the over and CSK scored 16 points in the over, meaning the MS Dhoni-led team needed 28 of the last six balls.
Abdul Samad threw out the 20th and gave up 20 runs, but it was not enough for CSK to cross the line as they suffered their third consecutive loss in this IPL season.
SRH will take on the Mumbai Indians next Sunday.
