SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) edition following an ankle injury he sustained during their season opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Day 3 of the IPL 2020 featured an interesting match as the ever so balanced Sunrisers Hyderabad took on the unpredictable Royal Challengers Bangalore. Marsh came to bowl an over. however, slipped in his follow-through after just bowling his second delivery.
He saw his 2017 campaign also curtailed due to injury after a shoulder problem cut-short his second year with Rising Pune Supergiants.
All-rounder and West Indies Test captain Jason Holder will replace him, the team added. He bowled two more balls, but he eventually made a decision to walk off the pitch.

The school division said public health is continuing to investigate the case and do proper contact tracing. The student was in the building on September 14 and no high-risk contacts have been identified.
The man from Australia was quite courageous as he came out to bat at the number 10 position for his team but unfortunately, SRH lost by 10 runs as he found it hard to stand. Padikkal was dismissed after scoring 56 off 42 balls against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on his IPL debut.
In the post-match presentation, captain David Warner had said that his compatriot's injury "doesn't look great", fears that have now been confirmed following scans.
He did not bat in his designated position in the team's middle-order in the run chase and instead limped back in at No.10. "A lot of courage from him to walk out there and try his best, but it was unfortunate tonight", Warner told Star Sports. It does not look great, he couldn't put any weight on his leg. Hopefully it isn't too bad, it was quite painful for him, so fingers crossed.
The 28-year-old must quarantine for six days on arrival and therefore will not be available for Sunrisers' next match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.
