Not having the pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the team is a huge blow for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the team is already going through this huge injury blow phase now. Because of a hip injury, pacer Bhuvi, the strong pillar of the SRH bowling unit is not playing IPL 2020 further. The selectors have ruled him out from the rest of the tournament.
The star Indian pacer has got the injury in SRH’s win over the Chennai Super Kings. The right-arm pacer stopped bowling during his last over before delivering his second ball. He received the treatment on the field but couldn’t start his bowling and walked off the field. Khaleel Ahmed completed Bhuvi’s bowling over. Not just one time, Bhuvi attempted to bowl on three occasions but couldn’t do such and finally handed the ball to Khaleel Ahmed.
The road to playoff is going to be rough for SRH
The team-physio had attended him right at that moment. According to sources, the team has confirmed bout Bhuvi’s injury. They also have confirmed that he is skipping the rest of the IPL 2020 tournament.
“Bhuvi will not be able to take further part in this year’s tournament 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,” the source said.
This is a major blow for the team Sunrisers Hyderabad. It is not the first time Bhuvneshwar Kumar is suffering from an injury recently. The string of his injury incident is continuing since the 2019 World Cup.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is currently at the seventh spot on the points table of IPL 2020 with just points. Out of the 5 matches, they have secured victory in two matches only. With the strong pacer not in the team now, rising up on the points table and qualifying the playoff is going to be tough for the team. The team has to play the matches revealing all their talents to reach up now.
