After Jasprit Bumrah, another pacer of Mumbai Indians likely to miss entire season of IPL 2023


After Jasprit Bumrah another player named Jhye Richardson is likely to miss the entire season for Mumbai Indians in the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League 2023.

As per the reports from ESPNcricinfo, the right-arm pacer has been ruled out of the upcoming ODI series against India. The latter suffered a hamstring injury after making his comeback from the previous injury.

However, the right-arm pacer had to stay away from the field after straining his hamstring on 4th January. Since then, he didn't feature in any of the games, even for Perth Scorchers in Big Bash League.

Moreover, Jhye Richardson also didn't take part in any domestic cricket like Marsh Cup and Sheffield Shield as well. Still, the Australian management named him in the 16-member squad for the ODI tour against India which is scheduled to kick off on 17th March, Friday.
