Krunal ruled out of remainder of Royal London One-Day Cup

The spin-bowling allrounder suffered a groin injury and will be out of action for three weeks

Krunal Pandya has been ruled out of the remainder of the Royal London One-Day Cup due to a groin injury he suffered during Warwickshire's match against Nottinghamshire on August 17. The spin-bowling allrounder returned to India on Monday evening and will be out of action for three weeks. 

Playing for Warwickshire, Krunal scored 134 runs in four innings at an average of 33.50 and also picked up nine wickets at an average of 25. The left-handed batter made an 82-ball 74 in the tied game against Surrey at The Oval and then chipped in with scores of 23 and 37 against Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire respectively. 

The left-arm spinner didn’t bowl in his last game but picked up three-wicket hauls against  Sussex and Leicestershire. Warwickshire's director of cricket Paul Farbrace said: "It's frustrating to lose Krunal for the remainder of the tournament, but he leaves the club with our very best wishes.

"Krunal was an excellent role model around the group and I'm sure the younger members of the squad will have learnt a lot from him on and off the pitch. Due to the short turnaround, we won't be signing a replacement, however, I'm incredibly excited to see our squad build on Sunday's excellent win over Durham."

Warwickshire are currently placed fifth in Group A of the Royal London Cup and are only one point behind the four sides currently ahead of them. They have also signed Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj for the closing stages of the County Championship Division 1 season.
