SRH’s Washington Sundar injured, likely to miss two upcoming matches in IPL 2022

SRH’s Washington Sundar injured, likely to miss two upcoming matches in IPL 2022: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) all-rounder Washington Sundar has sustained a split webbing in his bowling hand and is highly likely to miss at least two upcoming IPL 2022 matches of his side. SRH head coach Tom Moody confirmed the development after Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defeated Gujarat Titans (GT), last night.

Washington Sundar’s highly impressive bowling efforts followed by the sensational batting of skipper Kane Williamson took SRH over the rope against unbeaten Gujarat Titans (GT) on Monday in the DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai.

Sundar, before going off the field, bowled three tidy overs to build pressure on the opposition. His three wicketless overs, of which two were delivered in the powerplay, went for just 14 runs.

Tom Moody confirmed that Sundar would probably take a week to recover from his split webbing.

“Washington has torn the webbing in his right hand, between his thumb and first finger. We must monitor that over the next two-three days. Hopefully, it isn’t a significant blow. I’d imagine it’d take probably a week or so to settle down,” SRH coach Moody said after the win.

Washington Sundar has been phenomenal for SRH in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. The tweaker has picked up four wickets in four outings in the Tata IPL 2022 at an impressive economy of 7.85. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in its next encounter will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Brabourne Stadium followed by a contest against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on 15th April.

Rahul Tripathi is also doing well:

Meanwhile, middle-order batter Rahul Tripathi, who had to walk off the field, is also not on serious lines, said SRH head coach. Tripathi was retired hurt in the match against Gujarat Titans (GT) as he fell on the ground after hitting a maximum.

“He’s fine, he’s just getting cramped,” Moody said.

“It’s humid conditions and we get him to run to hotspots, so he covers a lot of ground in the first two-three overs.

“That is something we may need to look at to make sure we get the maximum out of him with the bat because obviously, he is a very valuable player for us.”
