Marsh ruled out, Jason Holder named as replacement
The Hyderabad all-rounder suffered an ankle injury during their IPL opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore

Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League 2020 due to ankle injury, the franchise announced on Wednesday (September 23). 

West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder will replace him for the remainder of the IPL. 

"Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out due to injury. We wish him a speedy recovery. Jason Holder will replace him for #Dream11IPL 2020," Sunrisers posted on its official Twitter handle.

The Australian all-rounder suffered an ankle injury during their IPL opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Marsh was handed the ball by skipper David Warner to bowl the fifth over but he could bowl only four deliveries.

Marsh, whose career has been marred by a series of injuries, twisted his ankle on the second ball while trying to stop a drive by Aaron Finch in his followthrough but managed to bowl two more balls before hobbling out. 

He later, came out to bat at number 10 in his side’s chase but it was apparent that he was finding it even difficult to stand. SRH lost the game by 10 runs.

SRH skipper Warner had praised his compatriot for coming out to bat despite being in pain.

Holder, who played for Sunrisers in the 2014-15 season, last featured in the IPL in 2016 for Kolkata Knight Riders. He recently featured in the Caribbean Premier League.
