“Amit has fractured his ring finger and is out of the IPL tournament. Obviously, it is very disappointing news considering he was integral to DC’s plans,” a source from Mishra’s management team confirmed the development to PTI.
Mishra played three games this season and took 2 for 25 against SRH apart from his 1/14 against KKR. He was brilliant against CSK despite going wicket-less for 23 runs in 4 overs.
He is set to travel back to India for recovery and rehabilitation.
He is the second-highest wicket-taker in the history of IPL with 160 scalps, 10 less than Lasith Malinga (170), who has opted out due to personal reasons this year.
