Nottinghamshire paceman Harry Gurney will have to miss out the upcoming season of IPL and T20 Blast due to a shoulder injury.
This upcoming September, Nottinghamshire player Harry Gurney will have to undergo a surgery to appease the shoulder injury which he has incurred. With that, he would have to miss out the upcoming matches of the IPL and the Vitality T20 Blast in which he is both a part of.
Last year, Gurney was the Notts Outlaws' highest wicket-taker in the T20 Blast League when he had finished the season with 22 scalps at 18. Aside from that, his three years with Nottinghamshire already led him to take down a total of 63 wickets. With that, he has always been considered as the go-to-bowler of the team.
As per Gurney, ‘Having gone through the same frustrations as everyone this year in waiting for cricket to restart, I'm devastated to have to miss the Blast. Some of the proudest moments in my career have been with Notts, and nothing quite compares to being out on the field at Trent Bridge competing for trophies with some of my best mates. To have that taken away for a year is tough’.
‘I have a huge amount of faith in the squad of players and in their ability to go deep in the tournament. I'll be cheering them on for sure, and will be there with a word of advice or tactical input whenever it's needed’, he added.
Aside from that, he will also have to miss out on the upcoming season of the IPL which is slated to start on September 19 and end on November 10 at the UAE. Gurney had debuted last year on the IPL by playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders which was also supposed to be his team this year.
