After the conclusion of the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner gave an update of injury on Mitchell Marsh. Sunrisers Hyderabad reached a 10-run loss on Monday chasing a target of 164 against RCB. “Losing Mitch (Marsh) early, hopefully, he’s alright, it doesn’t sound too good. He has a lot of courage to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight. He had an X-. Ray’s got to pick up. Hopefully it’s not too bad. It doesn’t sound too good. Obviously, what you saw there was quite painful, he can’t put any weight on it. Fingers crossed, ” Warner said in the post-match presentation.
Mitchell Marsh came to throw the fifth over of RCB’s innings, but on the second ball of the over he was seen to bend his ankle. He bowled two more balls to ease the pain but eventually decided to leave the field.
The right-handed batsman then came in to bat at number 10 and was visually impaired. However, he was dismissed on the very first ball, and as a result, the SunRisers fought at a 10-run loss.
The Sunrisers were scoring 121/2 at a time and were chasing their target of 164. However, Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini made a brilliant comeback for RCB and Hyderabad lost the match by 10 runs, losing eight wickets for just 32 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad next take on Kolkata Knight Riders at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on 26 September.
