Thigh muscle injury rules Bhuvneshwar out of IPL 2020
The fast bowler could also miss the tour to Australia as a result

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 due to a thigh muscle injury he sustained during his side's win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday (October 2) in Dubai. Bhuvneshwar pulled up in the 19th over of the CSK innings and even tried to bowl with the pain but walked off after the physio suggested so. To add to his woes, the fast bowler could also miss the Australia tour later this year.

Speaking of Bhuvneshwar's injury a BCCI official told PTI, "Bhuvneshwar Kumar is out of IPL with a thigh muscle injury. It is probably a grade 2 or 3 injury, which could mean that he would be out for at least 6 to 8 weeks. It might effectively rule him out of India's tour of Australia," a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

It is still unclear if SRH will name a replacement for Bhuvneshwar at this stage. Speaking after the match, SRH skipper David Warner said that he was unaware of the extent of the fast bowler's injury. "I am not too sure, have to speak to the physio, can answer this ques when we have more information," Warner said.

SRH are currently in the seventh place with four points in the bag. They take on KL Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) next on Thursday (October 8) at Dubai.
