Sunrisers Hyderabad coach, Tom Moody has confirmed that Ashish Nehra won't take any part in the reminder of the 10th season of the IPl.
"Ashish Nehra won't be fit for remainder of the tournament," said Moody on Tuesday (May 16). "Yuvraj will be undergoing a fitness test this evening. We'll be giving him every opportunity to prove his fitness and at this stage, we're reasonably confident. Nehra has increasingly over the time been challenged with soft-tissue injuries, and that comes with age. Bowling fast is not an easy thing to do when challenged with a few niggles with regard to soft tissue. We knew going into the tournament that Ashish play a vital role for us, but we knew he wouldn't be available for every game. Sadly he's broken down a lot sooner than we expected, not that we were expecting him to break down but you know what I mean."
Despite the setback, the defending champions have a strong bowling lineup with the likes of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Siddharth Kaul & Mohammad Siraj.
