The three-match ODI series between India and Zimbabwe is going to start from August 18. Team India has suffered a major setback before the first match to be played on Thursday. Indian all-rounder Washington Sundar, who was included on this tour, has once again been seen battling injury. Now the news has also come that Sundar is out of another series. Let us tell you that this is the fourth time in the last one year that he has been out of an entire series after being selected in the team.
Apart from this, in IPL 2022 also Washington Sundar was seen struggling due to finger injury etc. He was out for several matches and his injury problem continued even after his return. At the same time, this star all-rounder of Team India has once again proved unfortunate.
The last one year has been very disappointing for Washington Sundar. He was part of Team India’s squad on the tour of England last year. He suffered a finger injury during a practice match with the county team, due to which he was out of the team for several months. Sundar then made a comeback in the domestic league Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Now it was the turn of the South Africa tour which was in December-January. For that too, Sundar was selected in the team but due to being Corona positive before the tour, he again had to be out of the entire series.
Speaking to PTI, here’s what a BCCI official had to say, “Yes, Washington Sundar is ruled out of the Zimbabwe series. He has suffered an injury on his left shoulder while fielding during the Royal London Cup game between Lancashire and Worcestershire at Old Trafford. He will have to undergo rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy.”
He also added,”You feel for Washi. Such a talented guy. Somehow or the other, the rub of the green isn’t going his way. He needs some luck. The latest injury is a freak one as he was just about to play for India in a week.”
