Fans across the world are eagerly waiting for another season of the Indian Premier League which will kick off from April 5. But even before the tournament has started, it is in danger of losing its shine as some of the biggest names have been either ruled out of the season due to injuries or are still recovering from injuries. The injury is definitely going to hurt the franchises but there is very little they can do now apart from preparing with their available players.
So while the eight franchises wonder how would they line up if they had a full squad to pick from, we are presenting to you the injured XI:
The India opener, who has been one of India’s most important players in the Test format, has been ruled out the of 2017 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to wrist and shoulder injuries. According to a BCCI release, Vijay will undergo surgery on his right wrist and left shoulder.
The Tamil Nadu ace, a two-time IPL champion with Chennai Super Kings, is a proven performer in the tournament and there is no doubt that Kings XI Punjab will miss him badly this season.
