Mark Wood ruled out of IPL


Mark Wood, the England fast bowler, will not take part in IPL 2022 for Lucknow Super Giants, after picking up a right elbow injury during the first Test against West Indies in North Sound last week.

Wood has been ruled out of bowling for the time being.

The franchise has not yet zeroed in on a replacement. Wood had been picked by Super Giants for INR 7.5 crore at the mega IPL auction in February.

However, Wood’s participation in the IPL became doubtful once he had walked out of the drawn first Test last week after delivering just 17 overs because of the elbow problem.
