Gutted to miss IPL, says injured Jason Behrendorff | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Lanky Australia and Mumbai Indians pacer Jason Behrendorff, who will miss the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, on Tuesday said he’s gutted to miss this year’s cricketing extravaganza.
The left-arm pacer was recently ruled out of the entire season after fracturing his leg in a ‘freak training incident’.
On Monday, MI replaced Behrendorff with England’s Luke Wood.
“Unfortunately, there was a freak accident at training last week which resulted in my leg being broken. It wasn’t anyone’s fault, just a very unlucky incident,” Behrendorff wrote in a social media post.
“I have loved being a part of the MI Family and I am absolutely gutted to be missing this year’s IPL.”
Though the 33-year-old didn’t elaborate on the incident, a report in Espncricinfo said that he suffered the injury while batting in the nets at the WACA Ground last week.
“Behrendorff was batting in the nets at the WACA ground last Thursday ahead of departing to India to play in the IPL with Mumbai Indians when he suffered a fractured left fibula after a ball missed his pad and struck him flush just above the left ankle,” the report said.
He had snapped 14 wickets in 12 matches for MI last year.
