Rising Pune Supergiants the new Franchise struggling in the IPL 2016 with their performance and another news coming from the tournament that the leading run scorer from RPS team, the Australian captain is ruled out of the IPL 2016 due to his injury in his wrist. He is feeling pain in his wrist from few days but despite of that he is playing. After his last match the medical team suggest him to leave the tournament for the further treatment of the injury in Sidney. He is the third batsman in the tournament who scored century. George Bailey will be the new member of RPS team and will join soon.
Pune team is had very hard time. Most of the overseas players are injured and went back to their countries. First Kevin Pietersen, than South African captain Faf du Plessis than Mitchell Marsh and now a big blow for them is Steven Smith.
Usman Khawaja is signed earlier and on the way to India, another Australian player who use to play for KXIP in the previous season George Bailey will play for RPS this year in the upcoming matches. Last year his performance was not good that’s why Kings XI Punjab released him but in the recent series Australia vs India in January he performed well and that’s why Rising Pune Supergiants signed him for the rest of the tournament.
The batting strength will be improved after both the players joins the team, but there is no updated about replacement of Mitchell Marsh. MS Dhoni has very tough time through out IPL 9 as his team lost 6 matches out of 8 they have played so far and on the 6th spot in the points table. Now Smith leaving the tournament,it will be very tough for the team management to fill his place.
Cricket99 hope for the “Speedy recovery of all the injured players” .
