IPL 2017: Ravichandran Ashwin is set to miss the upcoming tournament

Posted On / /

The Rising Pune Supergiant offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin is set to miss the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) after being ruled out for six to eight weeks with a sports hernia injury.

Ashwin is expected to regain full fitness ahead of the Champions Trophy in June as he is scheduled to begin his rehabilitation soon.

The off-spinner first picked up the injury immediately after the Test series against England in December 2016. In the aftermath, he withdrew from Tamil Nadu’s Ranji Trophy semi-final clash against Karnataka.

Now, Ashwin’s absence will come as a mighty blow for RPS as he was one of the leading wicket-taker for the team with 10 wickets in 14 matches.
