Delhi Capitals paceman Ishant Sharma will miss the remainder of the Indian Premier League due to injury.

The India quick experienced pain in his left rib cage while bowling in a training session last Wednesday.

Ishant has since been informed he has suffered an internal oblique muscle tear, ending his participation in the IPL.

A statement released by his franchise on Monday said: “Delhi Capitals fast bowler Ishant Sharma experienced an acute episode of left rib cage pain while bowling at a team training session on 7 October 2020 in Dubai.

“Subsequent investigations revealed that he sustained a left internal oblique muscle tear. This injury will unfortunately rule him out of the remainder of the Indian Premier League 2020.

“Everyone at Delhi Capitals wishes Ishant a speedy recovery.”

The 32-year-old played just once in the tournament, bowling three overs for 26 runs without taking a wicket in a defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad last month.
