Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner has delivered an update on Mitchell Marsh’s injury and one can say things are not looking good for the Australia allrounder. Mitchell Marsh injured his ankle while bowling in the just-concluded game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The 28-year-old twisted his ankle on the follow through during the fifth over of the RCB innings and soon hobbled out of the ground. The remaining two balls of the over were then bowled by Vijay Shankar. Mitchell Marsh didn’t come back to field during the rest of the RCB innings.

He did come out to bat at number ten but was out for a first ball duck. And it looks like the injury is serious which could sideline him for a good amount of time. Speaking at the end of the game, David Warner lauded his compatriot for going out to bat before revealing that he ‘can’t put any weight on his leg’.
“A lot of courage for Mitchell to go out there and try. It doesn’t look great for him, can’t put any weight on his leg. Hopefully it isn’t too bad, it was quite painful for him, so fingers crossed,” said David Warner.
As far as the game is concerned, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost it by ten runs. Bowling first, they managed to restrict RCB to 163 for 5 after their openers added 90 runs in 11 overs for the first wicket. In reply, they were all out for 153 with two balls remaining. Jonny Bairstow top-scored for SRH, scoring 61.
Apart from Bairstow, only Manish Pandey (34) managed to cross the 20-run mark. For RCB, Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3 for just 18 off his four overs.
