Team India Left With Only One Net Bowler As Injured Ishan Porel Is Sent Home

Bengal fast-bowler Ishan Porel has hit been with yet another injury setback and the latest issue has cost him some precious time with Team India in Australia. The right-arm fast bowler has been sent back home from Australia after he sustained a hamstring injury during a net session.

The highly-rated bowler accompanied Team India to Australia as a net bowler after a productive campaign in the last domestic season. Earlier this year, he helped Bengal reach the 2019-20 Ranji Trophy final. He was part of the India A team that toured New Zealand in January 2020 and took eight wickets in three games.

Part of the U19 World Cup-winning team in 2018, Ishan Porel was recently in the UAE for IPL 2020 where he was a part of Kings XI Punjab camp. Unfortunately, he did not get to play a single game as his team bowed out of the competition at the league stage.

Following IPL 2020, he boarded the flight to Australia with Team India as a net bowler. But his sojourn in Australia has ended prematurely due to the injury. The extent of the injury is still not known and it would known only after he is assessed at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

“Ishan Porel has a hamstring injury and is already back in India for the past few days. It’s a hamstring injury but the degree of it can only be assessed once he goes to the NCA for assessment,” a senior BCCI source was quoted as saying by PTI.

“If it’s a grade 1 tear, there is every chance that Porel will miss the Mushtaq Ali Trophy which is not great news for Bengal. We will now have to wait and see how his rehabilitation goes in Bengaluru. Hope he is not out for too long,” the source added.

With Ishan Porel leaving Australia, India now have only one net bowling option in the form of young Kartik Tyagi. Originally, Porel, Tyagi, T Natarajan and Kamlesh Nagarkoti were named as net bowlers. But Natarajan was later added to the main squad while Nagarkoti had to be pulled out even before the team left for Australia due to his frail body needing workload management.
