India’s tiring home season has finally come to an end but there is no stopping the entertainment. It is almost the end of the March and that means it is IPL time in the country.

The clubs from around the country have already spent millions on their players as this edition of the slam-bang T20 tournament promises to be better than before.

However, it has constantly been hit by a few things, injuries and suspension to star players being one of them.

A number of players playing for different franchises have withdrawn from their teams after picking up injuries recently.

One such player who is now ruled out of the Indian Premier League this year is West Indies superstar, Andre Russell. He has been banned for one year from cricket for a whereabouts clause violation by an independent anti-doping panel in Kingston, which will affect his place in the IPL.
