Wayne Parnell joins list of IPL injured
Wayne Parnell, the Delhi Daredevils fast bowler, has been ruled out of the IPL because of a groin injury and will fly to South Africa this week. He sustained the injury during a warm-up and will be assessed by Cricket South Africa's medical staff on his return.
The blow is another setback to Delhi's campaign with Parnell, who was bought for $610,000 at the 2010 auction, joining his captain Gautam Gambhir on the injured list. Gambhir suffered a hamstring injury while fielding in the game against Mumbai Indians and did not bat, as Delhi slid to defeat. He missed the next two matches as well, both of which Delhi lost, derailing a campaign that had started with two victories.
There was another injury worry for South Africa with Chennai Super Kings' Justin Kemp hurting his back during the game against Kings XI Punjab. He left the field after bowling one ball and could not bat at his normal position.
