In what could be a huge blow to Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH), all-rounder Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the remainder of 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) season with a hamstring injury, the franchise informed on Thursday.
The all-rounder didn’t have a great beginning to his campaign in the ongoing season as he failed to make a vital contribution in any department of the game, going wicketless in the first six matches for SRH.
However, Sundar reattained his form in the team’s most recent fixture against Delhi Capitals (DC), scalping three wickets in an over and ended with impressive figures of 3/24.
Sundar, 24, was quite handy with the bat as he scored a brisk 15-ball 24 not out.
“Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the IPL 2023 due to a hamstring injury. Speedy recovery, Washi,” SRH tweeted on Thursday.
In the seven matches, Sundar managed to score just 60 runs beside picking up three wickets.
The 2016 champions, SRH, are currently placed ninth in the ten-team standings with just two wins in seven games and will next face the Capitals again in the return fixture at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on April 29.
