Delhi Capitals (DC) presented a fine gameplay display to overpower former champion Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by eight wickets in the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Dubai International Stadium on Wednesday. However, DC has suffered an injury scare in the form of Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis.

During the second over of his bowling spell, he pulled his hamstring. He could not continue after bowling the seventh delivery while spinner Ravichandran Ashwin completed the over.

Consequently, it has given DC a scare regarding his participation in the rest of the tournament. Most importantly, it has given Australia a shock since Stoinis happens to be a member of the squad for the upcoming ICC World T20 next month, set to be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Stoinis had recently pulled out of Australia's tour to Windies and Bangladesh, citing bubble fatigue, while he wanted to prioritise IPL as the ideal build-up and preparation for the WT20. His injury status is currently awaited, while Australia could replace him with fellow all-rounder Daniel Christian, who is in the reserves.

Stoinis had earlier tweaked his back this season during the pre-season training with his domestic side Western Australia. Meanwhile, he had told ESPNCricinfo that he was looking to become the best finisher in the world after being handed the role by DC.

The Australian players not participating in the IPL are expected to arrive in UAE a couple of weeks before the WT20 and play warm-up games against India and New Zealand. Meanwhile, skipper Aaron Finch is also on the injury list, recovering from his knee surgery, but is expected to be fit before the global competition.
