Dream IPL 2020 – Delhi Capitals pacer Ishant Sharma was ruled out of the ongoing IPL 2020 in the UAE on Monday. Ishant had only played one game in the tournament so far, which was against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He has been ruled out of Indian Premier League due to “a left internal oblique muscle tear” in his rib cage.
Ishant is the second player from the Capitals to be ruled out of the current season. Earlier, veteran spinner Amit Mishra also dropped out of the tournament due to finger fracture.
“Delhi Capitals fast bowler Ishant Sharma experienced an acute episode of left rib cage pain while bowling at a team training session on 7 October 2020 in Dubai. Subsequent investigations revealed that he sustained a left internal oblique muscle tear,” a statement from the franchise said.
“This injury will unfortunately rule him out of the remainder of the Dream11 Indian Premier League 2020. Everyone at Delhi Capitals wishes Ishant a speedy recovery,” the statement added.
