Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Mitchell Marsh was on Wednesday ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) after the he suffered an ankle injury during their opening match.
West Indian Jason Holder has been named Marsh’s replacement, SRH confirmed on their official Twitter handle.
In the first innings of the match that Hyderabad lost by 10 runs on Monday, SRH captain David Warner handed the ball to Marsh to bowl the fifth over but he could bowl only four deliveries.
Marsh twisted his ankle in the second ball while trying to stop a drive by Aaron Finch in his follow-through but managed to bowl two more balls before hobbling out.
Meanwhile, Holder will come into the season after taking part in the Caribbean Premier League. He has so far been part of three IPL teams in the past, including Sunrisers. His last appearance in the lucrative T20 tournament was back in 2016 season, when he was part of the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise.
