IPL 2021: Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered a big blow after Mitchell Marsh informed that he will pull out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. According to a report by Cricbuzz, the all-rounder expressed his inability to spend long times inside the bio-bubble and therefore informed his decision to SRH and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Under the latest IPL Covid-19 protocols, the 29-year-old Australian cricketer would have to undergo seven-day quarantine plus a 50-day bio-bubble, which he found too restrictive.
The report further added that SRH have signed an England batsman who did well during the recently-concluded T20I series against India.

Marsh was bought by SRH for a base price of Rs 2 crore at the 2020 auction. However, he was not available for the majority of the season after picking up an injury. He twisted his ankle during SRH’s opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), and was unfit to continue. SRH signed West Indian Jason Holder as his subsequent replacement.
