Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) management have announced that West Indies Test Captain Jason Holder will replace all-rounder Mitchell Marsh after the latter suffered ankle injury during the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Marsh could bowl only three balls before the injury happened. Although, the Australian bowler did try to continue but was seen limping and trudging before hobbling out.

In the second innings when SRH was batting, Marsh did came to the 22-yard strip to save his team, but ended up aggravating his injury.
