With Devdutt Padikkal smoking the new ball bowlers to all corners in the first three overs, captain David Warner turned to Mitchell Marsh to break the flow of runs.
However, Marsh ended up injuring himself, jeopardizing his participation in the rest of the match.
The unfortunate incident took place on the second delivery of Marsh’s over, when the all-rounder, in an attempt to save a run, proceeded to hurt his ankle.
Marsh is off with an ankle sprain.

Marsh continued for two more deliveries before eventually limping off the field. Things turned from bad to worse as replacement bowler Vijay Shankar proceeded to bowl back-to-back no-balls, one of which was smoked by Aaron Finch for a monstrous six over mid-wicket.
At the time of writing, RCB were going great guns, having racked up 53 runs in the powerplay.
