Delhi Capitals have received a huge blow ahead of their opening fixture in Indian Premier League 2020 as premier pacer Ishant Sharma is expected to be out for a considerable amount of time after suffering an injury during a recent training session.

The ShreyasIyer-led side are scheduled to take on Kings XI Punjab on September 20, 2020, at the Dubai International Stadium in IPL 2020.

According to a recent report from Cricbuzz, Ishant Sharma has injured his back on the eve of Delhi Capital’s first IPL 2020 game in Dubai during a recent practice session. The 32-year-old pacer has struggled with a lot of injuries this year, which has seen him miss a considerable amount of matches both for India and domestic teams.

In January of this year, Ishant Sharma suffered an ankle injury during a Ranji Trophy game between Delhi and Vidarbha. However, the pacer quickly recovered from that issue and returned a month later to take part in the New Zealand tour before injuring the same ankle which put doubt over his future.

Following his ankle injury in a Ranji Trophy clash, Ishant underwent an extensive rehabilitation procedure at the NCA before turning up for the New Zealand tour where he played just one game. This remains the pacer’s last competitive match this year and he produces a brilliant performance taking five wickets in the game.

Ishant Sharma is one of the most crucial players in the Delhi Capitals squad and last year formed a brilliant partnership with KagisoRabada. However, this time the ShreyasIyer-led side will have to do without him for some of the opening matches but have the likes of Harshal Patel, Mohit Sharma and Avesh Khan to replace him.
