Glenn Maxwell’s side Kings XI Punjab all-rounder, Marcus Stoinis, has been ruled out for the remainder of the Indian Premier League. The 27-year-old cricketer injured his shoulder while taking a diving catch in the practice session held before Punjab’s clash with Bangalore on 5th May. The Melbourne Stars all-rounder played five games for Punjab this season but has failed to replicate his exceptional feats from the 2016 edition.
The former Delhi Daredevils batsman is the latest to suffer from a shoulder injury, following Andrew Tye and Chris Lynn.
The former Perth Scorchers player has had a mediocre season thus far for the Punjab-based franchise. He has amassed only 17 runs and scalped two breakthroughs in the five games he has played so far this season. Stoinis was a mainstay for the side in the previous edition of the IPL, scoring a total of 146 runs at a healthy average of 36.50 and picked up 8 wickets with an remarkable strike rate of 17.25.
