Prime News, National and International Sport, Cricket, Mumbai, May 17:- Kolkata Knight Riders batter Ajinkya Rahane has been ruled out of the remainder of the IPL, owing to a hamstring injury, the franchise said on Tuesday (May 17).
Rahane had undergone scans, which revealed that he had torn his tendon.
In a video posted in the same tweet, Rahane said, “I really enjoyed my time on and off the field with everyone. (I) Learnt a lot as a cricketer; about life; about everything. I will definitely come back stronger next year and I am sure we will do well as a team in the next game and hopefully we will go to Kolkata and the play-offs.”
With seven losses and six wins, KKR are placed at the sixth spot with 12 points and they will not only have to win but do it with a big margin and then hope that other results go their way to salvage any hope of sneaking into the knockout stage. (Inputs: PTI/ NGB)
