Padikkal ruled out of Maharaja T20 league with fractured thumb

Devdutt Padikkal sustained the injury during his time at the Deodhar Trophy with the South Zone setup

During the Deodhar Trophy, Karnataka’s Devdutt Padikkal sustained a thumb injury, which ruled him out of the competition. While the extent of the injury wasn’t known at that point, it has ruled the left-handed batter out of the ongoing Maharaja T20 league, where he was set to represent the Gulbarga Mystics. 

The 23-year-old revealed that he has undergone surgery for the left thumb, which rules him out of cricket for the next three-four weeks. Sai Sudharsan earlier replaced the southpaw in South Zone’s camp. The southpaw also updated social media, stating that he is eager to return to the field. 

“I had a left-thumb fracture during the Deodhar Trophy. So, I had to undergo a minor surgery to get that fixed. I will be out of the game for probably another three to four weeks. Hopefully, I can be back on the field soon,” Padikkal told Fancode.

“Just a quick update. Sustained a fracture on my left thumb and had to undergo surgery. The road to recovery begins now and I'm eager to return to the field soon.”
