Unheralded left-arm pacer Prithvi Raj Yarra was on Tuesday named as replacement for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been administered out of the continuous IPL because of a thigh muscle injury.
Bhuvneshwar sustained the injury while bowling the 19th over of Chennai Super Kings’ innings during their October 2 conflict in Dubai and stumbled out of the field after only one delivery.
Sunrisers Hyderabad affirmed on Tuesday that the India pacer won’t take further part in the competition and he will be supplanted by the 22-year-old Prithvi Raj.
“Bhuvneshwar Kumar is ruled out of #Dream11IPL 2020 due to injury. We wish him a speedy recovery! Prithvi Raj Yarra will replace Bhuvi for the remainder of the season,” Sunrisers Hyderabad wrote on their twitter handle.
