Mumbai Indians Suffer Another Blow as Pacer Set to Miss IPL 2023

Mumbai Indians’ prospects for the 2023 IPL season have taken another hit, with reports indicating that Australian pacer Jhye Richardson is unlikely to participate due to a hamstring injury. Richardson recently returned to competitive cricket after being sidelined for several weeks due to a hamstring strain sustained during the Big Bash League. However, he suffered another hamstring injury during a 50-over match, where he bowled only four overs before being forced to leave the field. While he managed to take three wickets in that match, he subsequently underwent scans that revealed the extent of his injury. As per ESPNCricinfo, the pacer is set to miss the upcoming ODI series against India and is unlikely to recover in time for the IPL 2023. This setback follows the earlier news that Jasprit Bumrah, another key pacer for the Mumbai Indians, is also expected to miss the tournament due to personal reasons.
