Top 5 players with injury conerns

David Warner

David Warner suffered a finger injury during a match between Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants. He missed the next match of DC vs GT. The DC management has given an update on his fitness, stating that the Australian batter is 85% fit to play the next match. However, player fitness has always been a concern as they stretch themselves in the IPL and later suffer major injuries.

Wanindu Hasaranga

Hasaranga was ruled out of the IPL 2024 after suffering a foot injury. The Sunrisers Hyderabad player did not play a single match in the tournament and was replaced in the middle of the season. Vijayakanth Viyaskanth was named as his replacement in SRH.

Mayank Yadav

Mayank Yadav made headlines with his excellent performance in the IPL. However, after a few matches, he missed several matches due to injury. Indian selectors could have considered picking him for the squad, but now, since he is injured, his chances have decreased.

Devon Conway

The New Zealand opener was ruled out of IPL 2024 with an injury. He sustained a fracture on his left thumb and was anticipated to return during the latter part of the IPL. Unfortunately, the injury proved to be severe, leading to Conway being sidelined for the remainder of the tournament.

Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh, who was expected to captain the Australian side in the T20 World Cup 2024, has been ruled out of the remaining IPL matches due to a hamstring injury. He has started rehabilitation, but it remains uncertain when he will regain fitness.
