Windies pacer Alzarri Joseph is missing IPL due to the massive injury of tearing on his right-arm that dislocated during fielding on diving against Royal Challengers Bengaluru.
Alzarri Joseph was a replacement for New Zealand’s Adam Milne, who didn’t arrive after suffering from a swollen heel. Milne had been bought at the December auction for INR 75 lakhs. As per the rules, the replacement also gets the same amount.
Have a look at this year for Alzarri Joseph. In last February, he lost his mother in the middle of his maiden home Test in Antigua against England, where he’d dismissed Joe Denly off the first delivery. He opted to play the Test, displaying a lot of character in West Indies’ series win against England.
Accordingly, Alzarri Joseph’s IPL journey lasted for a week. He announced himself able, picking the IPL’s best bowling figures of 6 for 12 to delivery an away win against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Three days later, Joseph hit the winning runs against Kings XI Punjab in their first home game. However, he remains wicketless but had just bowled two overs in which he had given 22 runs.
On last Friday, before his fall in the injury, Joseph had already endured a hard beating, once again going wicketless and leaking 53 runs in three overs. Having played half the number of games. So Mumbai Indian has to find an immediate replacement for Joseph.
