Mumbai Indians pace bowler Zaheer Khan has been ruled out for the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to a left latissinus dorsi muscle strain.
Khan sustained the injury during Mumbai’s victory over the Kings XI Punjab on May 3.
“Zaheer will surely be missed,” Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma wrote in his column for Daily News and Analysis. “His injury doesn’t look too good at this stage and it’s a terrible blow for us as he was consistently getting us those crucial early breakthroughs.”
