Sunrisers Hyderabad were dealt a huge blow on Thursday as senior left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra was ruled out of ongoing the Indian Premier League after sustaining a hamstring tendon injury which also put serious a question mark on his future in competitive cricket.
The press release issued by the franchise stated: “Sunrisers Hyderabad spearhead, Ashish Nehra has sustained a significant hamstring tendon injury during the match against Kings XI Punjab on May 15, 2016.
“Ashish Nehra is now in consultation with a specialist orthopaedic surgeon for the most appropriate course of treatment to ensure a successful return to competitive cricket. Unfortunately he will play no further part in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad,” the release further stated.
At 37, with no limited-overs matches to look forward to, it will be interesting to see if he has the zeal to continue as there aren’t too many T20 internationals in the next one and half years.
