Sunrisers Hyderabad is having a tough time in IPL 2020 in the first week itself. Earlier, they lost their campaign opener to Royal Challengers Bangalore. Now, they have suffered a big blow as Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out of the tournament after he sustained an ankle injury during RCB game. And, Jason Holder has been officially announced as the replacement of Aussie all-rounder for this season.
Mitchell Marsh was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad during the auction for IPL 2020. SRH splashed INR 2 Crores to secure his services. The Aussie all-rounder’s cricketing career is once again dented with a injury. The 28-year-old in 2019 fractured his wrist in an attempt to punch the wall after getting dismissed during a Sheffield Shield game. In 2018, he got surgery of his left-ankle. And, back in 2016, while playing for Rising Supergiants, he was sidelined from the tournament due to a shoulder injury.
