Mitchell Marsh out of IPL 2020

Mitchell Marsh has become the first player to be ruled out of IPL 2020 because of injury, and West Indies allrounder Jason Holder has been named as his replacement at the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Marsh hurt his right ankle during the Sunrisers' first match of the tournament, on September 21 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

This is the second time in the last five years that Marsh has had to abort the tournament because of injury - in 2017, a shoulder problem cost him the entire IPL season for the Rising Pune Supergiants.

Marsh was picked by the Sunrisers for his base price of INR 2 crore.
