Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday announced the signing of Jason Holder with the West Indies Test skipper replacing Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who has been ruled out of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 due to an ankle injury. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday announced the signing of Jason Holder with the West Indies Test skipper replacing Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who has been ruled out of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 due to an ankle injury. 

Marsh suffered the ankle injury during their IPL 2020 match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Dubai International Stadium on Monday. Marsh tweaked his ankle while bowling the fourth delivery of his first over and couldn’t even complete his spell. He was taken off immediately. 

However, Marsh showed brilliant professionalism by walking into bat at No. 10 but was unable to help SRH win the match due to the pain in his ankle. He was caught out in the first delivery he faced.

Holder, who had an INR 75 lakh base price in the IPL 2020 auction, had gone unsold. Holder has previously played for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) making a mere five appearances. He has 38 runs to his name with five wickets but SRH would hope he can bring his form from Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 into the table. 

SRH had suffered a crushing defeat against RCB in their IPL 2020 season opener in Dubai after a middle-order collapse but the Trevor Bayliss-led SRH staff would be hoping Holder provides them the solidity and versatility with both bat and ball. 

“Official Statement: Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out due to injury. We wish him a speedy recovery. Jason Holder will replace him for #Dream11IPL 2020. #OrangeArmy #KeepRising,” SRH tweeted on Wednesday.
