The 16th season of IPL is starting from 31 March. All the teams have geared up for the league. However, before the start of the league, Mumbai Indians have suffered another major setback. Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson, who is suffering from a hamstring problem, has decided that he will not be present for Mumbai Indians this year.
Let us tell you that Jasprit Bumrah, who is recovering from a back injury, will also not be seen playing for this team this year.
Jhye Richardson got injured again while playing club cricket last week. He suffered a hamstring problem during a Big Bash League match. Due to injury, Richardson was also ruled out of the ODI match for the tour of Team India.
Richardson tweeted, ‘Injury is a part of cricket. This is a fact. Although such things bother you. However, I am now about to do what I love the most, that is working hard. He further wrote, ‘One step back, two steps forward. Let’s do this.’
Even before this, due to cheats, Richardson could not be a part of many important matches. He was ruled out of the ODI World Cup and the Ashes in 2019 after undergoing shoulder surgery. Jhye Richardson was bought by Mumbai Indians during the auction for Rs 1.5 crore.
Punjab Kings also bid to buy him. Talking about IPL career, he has taken 3 wickets while playing a total of 3 matches in IPL. At the same time, for Australia, he has taken 11 wickets in 3 Test matches, 27 wickets in 15 ODIs and 19 wickets in 18 T20 matches.
