New Delhi. The second half of IPL 2021 (IPL 2021 2nd Phase) is going to start in UAE from 19th September. But the troubles of Rajasthan Royals (RR) do not seem to be diminishing. West Indies batsman Evin Lewis, who was added to the team as a replacement for Jos Butler, has also been injured. He suffered an injury in the final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL Final). Lewis was playing for the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots team in the league. While fielding in the final against St Lucia, he injured his left shoulder while trying to save a four.
The incident happened in the fifth over of St Lucia’s innings. Dominic Drakes was bowling this over and Rahkeem Cornwall was on strike. Cornwall cut a ball from Drakes and Lewis, standing at backward point, tried to stop the ball by diving to his left. During this he got injured. Immediately the physio came on the field and gave him treatment. However, later he went out of the field for some time. However, he came out to bat later. But got out after scoring 6 runs.
Lewis’ injury raised concerns for Rajasthan
If Lewis’ injury becomes serious then it will be a big blow for Rajasthan Royals. Because the team is already troubled by the exclusion of many veteran players. Star players like Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer will not be seen playing in the second phase of IPL 2021. Lewis can prove to be very important for Rajasthan. Because he is in great form at the moment. He finished second in the list of most run-scorers in the Caribbean Premier League.
