New Delhi: Delhi Capitals’ IPL campaign suffered a jolt with its  experienced leg-spinner Amit Mishra being ruled out for the rest of the  season due to an injury to his bowling hand.
 According to  Delhi Capitals’s press release, the 37-year old  spinner, who has played in all 13 seasons and has a tally of 160 wickets, the second highest in league history, sustained a flexor tendon injury to the right finger of his right hand while attempting to take a return catch of Kolkata Knight Riders’ Nitish Rana on Saturday.

Mishra, who has three hat-tricks in IPL, has played three games this season, picking up three wickets. He could bowl just two overs in the game against KKR due to the injury.

The spinner  will now consult with a specialist over the next few days to determine the most appropriate course of management for this unfortunate injury.
