Washington to miss second-leg of IPL; Akash Deep named replacement

It remains to be seen if Washington is picked in the Indian squad without playing a single IPL game

Royal Challengers Bangalore all-rounder Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the second phase of the Indian Premier League, starting in the UAE on September 19 due to a finger injury he suffered in England which has not healed completely. He took a fitness test at the NCA but failed in that pursuit.

Washington had traveled to England with the Indian squad but returned to the country after injuring his finger while playing in a County game that served as a practice game for the visitors. The 21-year-old, who is an off-spinner and a useful batsman, had turned up for the County side and was hit by India pacer Mohammed Siraj, forcing the all-rounder out of the tour.

"Royal Challengers Bangalore's all-rounder Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the remainder of the Vivo IPL 2021 due to an impending finger injury," the IPL Franchise said in a statement.

Bengal cricketer Akash Deep, who is a net bowler with the franchise, has been named as a replacement for the remainder of the IPL.

The T20 World Cup is slated to begin immediately after the conclusion of the IPL and it remains to be seen if Washington is picked in the Indian squad without playing a single IPL game.
