For reasons related to his groyne, Krunal Pandya’s time with Warwickshire was cut short

During the first innings of the match between Warwickshire and Nottinghamshire on August 17, Krunal Pandya sustained the injury while batting for Warwickshire.

Out-of-favour Krunal Pandya, an all-rounder from India, was playing for the English county side Warwickshire when he suffered a groyne injury. As a result, he was unable to participate in the Royal London One-Day Cup, which is currently being played. On August 17, the batsman, who is 31 years old, suffered the injury while playing for Warwickshire against Nottinghamshire.

The match took place at Trent Bridge. During the second essay, the spinner did not come back out onto the field. He did not play for the team in either of the subsequent two matches, which were played against Middlesex and Durham respectively.

“Krunal Pandya will return to India this evening after receiving a diagnosis on the groyne injury he experienced against the Notts Outlaws in the Royal London Cup,” the club said in a statement on Monday. “The injury was sustained while playing for the Notts Outlaws in the Royal London Cup.”

Pandya, who had been recruited by the county squad in July to compete in the 50-over competition, participated in five games for Warwickshire in the tournament that is currently continuing. During those games, he scored 134 runs at an average of 33.50 and also took 9 wickets.

“It’s frustrating to lose Krunal for the duration of the competition,” said Paul Farbrace, who is in charge of cricket operations for Warwickshire. “He leaves the club with our very best wishes,” Farbrace said.

“Krunal served as an outstanding example for the rest of the group, and I have no doubt that the younger members of the squad gained a great deal of knowledge from him both on and off the field.

“We will not be signing a replacement due to the short turnaround time, but I am extremely thrilled to see our team build on Sunday’s fantastic victory over Durham,” Farbrace continued.
