Wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha has been injured. In IPL-13, he did not play for his team Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier-2 against Delhi Capitals on Sunday. Not only this, he did not play in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Eliminator also. Hyderabad captain David Warner also said after the toss on Sunday that Saha is unable to play in the match due to injury. Saha has muscle strains.
