IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals Varun Aaron hospitalized: Rajasthan Royals and Jharkhand pacer Varun Aaron has been hospitalized. Aaron is suffering from laryngitis according to a report. Aaron, who played the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 for Rajasthan Royals, was part of the Jharkhand squad in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 but has now pulled out of the tournament due to laryngitis.
According to WION, the Indian speedster is currently hospitalized but is stable and is on his way to recovery.
Aaron played in Jharkhand’s Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 opener against Dinesh Karthik-led Tamil Nadu and bowled three overs in the match. However, Aaron went on to miss Jharkhand’s second match against Bengal in the domestic T20 tournament due to the infection.
“Varun Aaron is currently hospitalised after suffering from laryngitis. He is being looked well by the doctors and is stable. Due to the development, Varun will not be able to play in the tournament and has pulled out,” a source privy to the development told WION.
How this will impact Aaron’s chances to bag IPL contract? The pull out from the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 can cost Aaron dearly as it was his opportunity to impress the franchise to retain him for IPL 2021.
Aaron had a 2.4 Cr per annum contract with Royals but now it is unlikely that franchise will retain him for IPL 2021.
Aaron was also part of Rajasthan Royals squad in IPL 2020 in the UAE and played three matches in the 13th edition of the tournament. Though he failed to take a wicket, the former Indian pacer looked impressive in two of the matches – against Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders – where he conceded 25 and 22 runs respectively.
