Mitchell Marsh ruled out of IPL 2024? Pravin Amre delivers update on Aussie all-rounder, Kuldeep Yadav and Mukesh Kumar

Pravin Amre, the assistant coach of Delhi Capitals, has delivered an update on the fitness status of the three injured players.

At present, three key DC players – Mukesh Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mitchell Marsh are sidelined with injuries. Both Mukesh Kumar and Mitchell Marsh are sidelined with hamstring injuries while Kuldeep Yadav is out of action due to a groin niggle.

Marsh started the season as an opener before dropping to number three when Prithvi Shaw was recalled to the playing eleven for the third game against Chennai Super Kings. He picked up the injury in the fourth game against Kolkata Knight Riders while bowling. He did come out to bat but was out for a two-ball duck.

On the other hand, Kuldeep Yadav has not played since the second game of the season. As far as Mukesh Kumar is concerned, he has missed the last two games. Delivering an update on the trio, Pravin Amre said that Mitchell Marsh’s injury is a big concern while stating that both Kuldeep Yadav and Mukesh Kumar will return to action soon.

Pravin Kumar delivers update:

Speaking after DC’s defeat against Mumbai Indians on Sunday (April 7), Pravin Amre said: “A few of our players are injured, and the worrying sign is Mitch Marsh.

“He has gone for a scan and the physios will give us a report in a week’s time. Then we will come to know what the exact situation is. Whether he can [play the entire season] or not depends on the reports,” he added.

Amre further said that while Kuldeep is expected to miss “one or two games” more, Mukesh Kumar is set to be available from the next game.

“We have to start winning but have been set back by a few injuries. In the first game, Ishant [Sharma] couldn’t bowl two overs. Then Mukesh got injured. Kuldeep has not played three games. Marsh has a hamstring injury. They are our main players and whoever comes [in for them], they are not as effective because it is like A players vs B players there,” said the former India batsman.

Meanwhile, DC suffered their fourth loss in the fifth game in IPL 2024 as MI defeated them by 29 runs. Chasing an improbable 235, DC finished their innings on 205/8.
