Delhi Capitals suffered a major blow as their star bowler Kagiso Rabada has been ruled out for the rest of the IPL due to a back issue. As a precautionary measure, Cricket South Africa (CSA) have decided to pull Rabada out of the tournament in order for him to recover in time for the ICC World Cup which begins on May 30th in England.


 “It is indeed very hard for me to leave the Delhi Capitals at this stage of the tournament. But with the World Cup just a month away, a collective decision has been made for me in this regard. It’s been a tremendous season for me with the Delhi Capitals, both on and off the field, and I truly believe that our team can win the trophy,” Rabada said in a release.  


Rabada has had an outstanding IPL and is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 25 wickets to his name. Due to his stellar efforts, Delhi have reached the playoffs after a gap of seven years. Rabada was rested for the game against Chennai Super Kings and now scans have revealed a back issue. Ricky Ponting, the Delhi Capitals’ head coach termed Rabada’s departure as “unfortunate.”


 “It’s unfortunate that Rabada is having to leave us at this stage of the tournament. But I have full confidence in our team and I’m sure each and every member of this unit will step up to the occasion,” Ponting said.
