CRICKET- Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians will have to do without bowler Pat Cummins as he has been ruled out of 2018 season because of a bone oedema in his vertebrae.
Cummins has a long history of back issues and had also suffered soreness during the recent fourth and final Test against South Africa.
“It is important that Pat has time off bowling, to prevent the injury becoming more serious and consequently we have made the decision to rule Pat out of the IPL,” said physio David Beakley in a Cricket Australia press release.
MI had bought Cummins for Rs. 5.4 crore.
