To say that a sporting event gets completed without an injury faced by the players is a lot hysterical. Some injuries even go on to take a toll on sportsperson’s entire career. While the greatest cricketing carnival has taken off in the United Arab Emirates from 19th September in the wake of Covid-19, injuries continue to hover over the big names of the cricketing circuit.

Due to cricketing action suspended for the past five-months and players remaining indoors, fitness has become a major talking point for all the team management. An event of IPL’s standard demands for the best performance from its players by the fans if not anything else.

From the likes of Ishan Kishan, Nathan-coulter-Nile, Mitchell Marsh to Ravichandran Ashwin and Dwayne Bravo, all of them have been the victim of injuries in the 13th IPL. On that note, let us assess the cricketing stalwarts’ health conditions and let us pray for their speedy recovery.

Here’s the list:

The wicket-keeper batsman has a plethora of runs to his name. He holds the potential to deposit 30 odd runs extra in the team’s bank after the end of 20 overs. The Under-19 captain is the powerhouse of energy and the epitome of youth.

The prolific match-winner could not step down the field in the team’s first encounter against Chennai Super Kings due to shoulder niggle. Earlier, the Ranchi boy has suffered a major injury as the speedy ball coming from the hands of Hardik Pandya climbed awkwardly and hit his eyes in the most unwanted style.

The aggressive middle-order batsman has played 37 matches in his IPL career. Amassing 695 runs with an impressive strike rate of 130.88, the swashbuckler renders full justice to his price money of whopping INR 5.5 crores. It is yet to be seen when this cricketing maestro dons the blue shirt and helps the team cross the line of triumph.
