Indeed it is a massive blow for the Delhi Capitals (DC) as one of their premium pacers, Ishant Sharma has suffered a back injury in the midst of the pre-match training and practice. He might now be on a temporary break for a few matches to sustain himself in the stability.
The paceman has a history of injuries from a few months as he got sidelined from the national squad back in January 2021 amidst his ankle injury. The player himself was unsure of his availability in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he retained injury once again and on the day when he was fortunate to feature in the inaugural game of DC in IPL 2020 against Kings XI Punjab, he has sustained an injury that might be troubling for him.
He was auctioned by DC back in 2018 for a price of 1.1 Crore on behalf of his experience. As of now, DC might look for three possible alternates for Ishant that are Harshal Patel, Mohit Sharma, and Avesh Khan.
