After Bumrah, another star pacer set to miss IPL 2023
The Mumbai Indians pacer said injuries are obviously frustrating but he is determined to be back as a stronger cricketer
Australian pace bowler Jhye Richardson is set to miss the Indian Premier League (IPL) after undergoing hamstring surgery. The right-arm quick was earlier ruled out of the 3-match ODI series against India and preferred going under the knife in order to find a long-term solution to his hamstring issue.
Richardson initially picked up the injury in the Big Bash League a little before the season finale. He attempted a return to action last week but suffered a recurrence playing club cricket. He was due to join Mumbai Indians in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) but in all likelihood, he won’t be able to make it following the surgery. He last represented Punjab Kings before getting signed by the 5-time champions.
