Injuries have hampered Sundar’s cricketing career consistently for many years, with the hamstring strain being the latest in a series of fitness concerns and illnesses. In 2021, right after playing one of the best knocks he has ever produced in the Gabba Test against Australia, he suffered a finger injury while fielding for a County side in a warm-up game against India at Chester le Street.
Most recently, he injured his left shoulder after landing heavily on it while fielding in a Royal London One-Day Cup game for Lancashire and missed the tour of Zimbabwe. He also suffered a similar hamstring injury last February that forced him to miss T20Is at home against West Indies and subsequently missed a bunch of games for SRH with a hand injury.
Sunrisers Hyderabad who had a good start in the IPL is having a torrid time with the half of the season completed. The Hyderabad-based franchise is currently 9th on the points table with 2 wins and 5 losses. The 2016-IPL champions will next face Delhi Capitals in the return fixture at Arun Jaitley Stadium on April 29.
