While attempting to take an overhead catch in the deep, he had fallen awkwardly on his left shoulder and had to go off the field.

Earlier, KKR made a surprise move when they sent him to open the innings along with Gautam Gambhir instead of their regular opener Robin Uthappa. The move paid rich dividends as he blasted 93 runs off just 41 balls against Gujarat Lions in the first game as they chased down a mammoth total of 183 runs in just the 15th over having all 10 wickets in hand.
He followed it up with another good knock of 32 off 24 balls against Mumbai Indians. He was enjoying a dream run till that point of time as he was awarded the Orange Cap for being the leading run scorer in the tournament. But just then he encountered the injury that might force him to sit out of the next few games.
Disappointed after the incident, he tweeted:
Dear Cricket Gods, did I do something wrong?
