All-rounder Washington Sundar was on Monday ruled out of the remainder of the IPL starting in UAE on September 19 as the finger injury he suffered in England has not healed completely and he could not clear the fitness test at the NCA.
Washington, who plays for RCB in the IPL, had travelled to England with the Indian squad but returned to the country after injuring his finger while playing in a county game that served as a practice game for the visitors.
The 21-year-old, who is an off-spinner and a useful batsman, had turned up for the county side and was hit by India pacer Mohammed Siraj, forcing the all-rounder out of the tour.
“Royal Challengers Bangalore’s all-rounder Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the remainder of the Vivo IPL 2021 due to an impending finger injury,” the IPL franchise said in a statement.
Bengal cricketer Akash Deep, who is net bowler with the franchise, has been named as replacement for the remainder of the IPL
