Sunrisers Hyderabad's Ashish Nehra ruled out of remainder of IPL

Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 10Bengaluru: Sunrisers Hyderabad veteran quick Ashish Nehra was ruled out of the rest of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season, head coach Tom Moody said here on Tuesday.

"Ashish Nehra won't be fit for the remainder of the tournament," he told media in an interaction on the eve of the IPL eliminator clash between Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Chinnaswamy stadium here.

Nehra was forced off the field with a hamstring strain in a league match against Rising Pune Supergiant on May 6.

Hyderabad will now depend on Mohammad Siraj, who has picked up four wickets in their must-win match against Gujarat Lions to qualify for the playoffs.

On Yuvraj Singh's fitness, Moody said the left-handed Punjab batsman will be undergoing a fitness test in the evening.

"Yuvraj will be undergoing a fitness test this evening. We will be giving him obviously the opportunity to prove his fitness," he said.

Yuvraj, who had scored 243 runs in 11 games this IPL, had sustained an injury in his fingers against Mumbai Indians and missed the crucial game against Gujarat.
