Following the scans, the franchise has confirmed that the Australian all-rounder would no longer be available to continue in the tournament, with the serious injury.
As a like-to-like replacement, the 2016 IPL winners have roped in the experienced Windies all-rounder Jason Holder. Holder has already represented three franchise in the IPL, with his debut coming in Chennai Super Kings colours before he moved to Kolkata Knight Riders. However, his last season in the tournament came with Sunrisers Hyderabad, which has prompted the franchise to rope him back to the setup.
