Nathan Coulter-Nile, the Delhi Daredevils fast bowler, and Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Nic Maddinson have been ruled of IPL 2014 with injury. The IPL technical committee has allowed the franchises to look for replacements for these players. Chennai Super Kings, too, could look for a replacement for the injured Dwayne Bravo, the committee said.
Coulter-Nile took 2 for 27 against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 19, before injuring himself three deliveries into Daredevils next match, against Super Kings. He hobbled off after hurting his leg while sliding to stop the ball. Maddinson opened the batting for Royal Challengers in two games, scoring 4 and 12. Bravo, who was one of five players retained by Super Kings, hurt his shoulder while attempting a catch on the boundary in the team's first match, against Kings XI Punjab.
According to the IPL player regulations, the three franchises can choose replacements from among the players who registered for the 2014 auction but were not bought.
