Veteran Indian leg-spinner, Amit Mishra, was ruled out of IPL 2020 following a finger injury that he sustained playing for Delhi Capitals (DC) in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Amit Mishra sustained an injury in his fingers while trying to catch a ball in his second over against KKR at Sharjah on Saturday.
Amit Mishra couldn’t complete his quota of 4 overs after being injured in the game against KKR and bowled only 2 overs in that game. On Monday, Delhi Capitals will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and if the reports are true, then this will be a massive blow for Delhi Capitals.

Annachi Amit Mishra ruled out of #IPL2020 with finger injury. Absolutely gutted to hear this news. He was bowling like a champ last game. 2-0-14-1 in Sharjah, not afraid to flight the ball. Was looking forward to seeing more of him this season. Class bowler.
