- Yuvraj Singh injured his hand in the last game against Mumbai Indians.
- The left-handed batsman continued to bat despite the injury.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) superstar Yuvraj Singh injured himself during their last game against Mumbai Indians. While he was fielding, he injured his right arm and Yuvraj was taken off the field by the team physio.
He has already been nursing a calf issue and now this injury. Things were not looking good for Yuvraj but thanks to SRH team mentor VVS Laxman, who confirmed that this arm injury was not a major one and the classy left-handed batsman should be fit before their next game.
"He should be okay. Just that the hand got jammed into the ground while he was fielding. So there is some contusion, but luckily we are next playing a match after four days, so there is enough time for him to recover. But credit to him to go out there in spite of the pain, taking the responsibility that I will go out and bat and try to win the match,” Laxman said.
Yuvraj has also been picked in the India ODI squad for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017. He has shown signs of form in recent times and is going to be extremely handy in English conditions.
