Major setback for Sunrisers Hyderabad as star bowler set to miss entire IPL 2024


Despite the absence of their star spinner, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) made a promising begin to the match.

Sri Lanka’s high spinner, Wanindu Hasaranga, will likely be sidelined for the 2024 Indian Premier League season due to a left heel damage, as confirmed by Sri Lanka Cricket CEO Ashley de Silva on Sunday. Hasaranga was signed by Sunrisers Hyderabad within the December public sale for his base value of INR 1.5 crore, after being launched by Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Initially, it was believed that Hasaranga would solely be out for ‘no less than every week’, however it seems that the damage is extra extreme than anticipated. Despite not too long ago taking part in Sri Lanka’s white-ball collection towards Bangladesh, a report from ESPNcricinfo revealed that Hasaranga performed via a big quantity of ache.

In the six limited-overs matches he performed, Hasaranga took a complete of eight wickets. Six of those wickets have been claimed throughout the ODI collection, with the remaining two taken throughout the T20Is.

“He is not taking part in the IPL as he needs to do some rehabilitation after meeting the podiatrist. There’s a swelling in the heel, and he has been playing with injections. So he has decided to get this issue sorted out before the World Cup and informed us of his decision to skip the IPL this year,” Sri Lanka CEO Ashley de Silva told The Sunday Times.

The revelation from de Silva comes as a surprise, as the player’s manager had informed Cricbuzz earlier this week that Hasaranga would be joining SRH “sooner rather than later.” 

“All I can say is he will definitely join the team,” his supervisor had additional stated.

Despite the absence of their star spinner, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) made a promising begin to the match. Although they started the season with a loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders, the SRH confirmed constructive indicators with a robust efficiency, narrowly lacking the goal by simply 4 runs in a difficult 209-run chase.

Just not too long ago, the staff achieved a outstanding feat by breaking the document for the best runs scored in a single innings in IPL historical past. They scored a formidable 277/3 in 20 overs towards the Mumbai Indians, securing a victory by 31 runs.
