Sunrisers Hyderabad's Ashish Nehra ruled out of IPL

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s senior left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra has been ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) after sustaining a hamstring tendon injury.

The press release issued by the franchise stated: 



Sunrisers Hyderabad spearhead, Ashish Nehra has sustained a significant hamstring tendon injury. Nehra is now in consultation with a specialist orthopedic surgeon. Unfortunately, he will play no further part in the ninth edition of the IPL for Sunrisers Hyderabad.




A Grade-1 hamstring injury at least takes three weeks to heal and hamstring tendon injury could take anything between 3-6 months including rehabilitation.

This puts a serious doubt over his future in competitive cricket. Nehra, 37, has no limited-overs matches to look forward to and it will be interesting to see if he has the zeal to continue as there aren't too many T20 internationals in 2016.
