Eoin Morgan Fitness: England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan was ruled out of the 2nd and 3rd ODI matches against India after splitting the webbing between his right thumb and index finger while fielding in the India vs England 1st ODI match. The left-handed batsman had to get four stitches and was doubtful to play a further part in the 1st ODI. But the former Irish international came out to bat in the 2nd innings making 22 runs off 30 balls, but England lost the game by 66 runs. Morgan had remained on the sideline since then.
During a chat show with Sky Sports Cricket, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper has given an insight into his injury rehabilitation. The 34-year-old batsman talked about his injury and was hopeful of getting fit for KKR’s first IPL 2021 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on April 11.
“We are having a camp in Mumbai, so a change of venue, change of scenery, change of energy which is good. And the hand is progressing nicely. I will get my stitches out tomorrow then I will start my batting again following a few days, fielding before the first game, so looking forward to it. I think it will depend upon progress, how the next week goes. It will determine whether I will be fit for the first game or not. Certainly, with the time frame that I have all of the medical staff are backing me to be fit, that’s just without the reoccurrence of many issues.”
KKR will open their IPL 2021 campaign with the game against SRH on April 11. The two-time IPL champions missed out on the playoffs last season.
As for the IPL 2021 schedule, there will be no home advantage for the IPL teams this season with the matches set to be played at five venues in India – Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, and Bangalore.
Due to rising Covid-19 cases in Mumbai, there are rumours that the matches may be shifted from Mumbai. But the BCCI and the IPL committee are yet to come up with any statement.
The final of the IPL 2021 season will be played in Ahmedabad on May 29th.
