Australian captain and Rising Pune Supergiants captain Steve Smith expressed his disappointment after a wrist injury ended his journey in this
year’s IPL. The right-hander took to Instagram to express his disappointment.
Smith, who registered his maiden T20 hundred against Gujarat Lions, has been a key man for Pune in their first season, scoring 270 runs at an average of 45, and as such the news comes as a major blow for a side that is languishing in sixth spot in the standings and has already been beset by injuries.
Expressing his love for playing in India, he wrote, “So disappointed to have had to leave India and my team mates at Pune so soon. I love playing in India and the IPL. The passion of the fans is unbelievable and they always make me feel so welcome. I want to thank the owners, team management and the sponsors for everything they did for me during my stay. Hope the Supergiants can make a late run for the finals. See everyone again next year. #DumKaNayaRang”.
