IPL 2023: Ishan Kishan’s eye injury leaves him out of IPL 2023 Qualifier 2 as MI bring in concussion substitute

Vishnu Vinod replaces Ishan Kishan as concussion substitute

During the intense Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 Qualifier 2 clash between the Mumbai Indians and the Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium, a concerning incident took place involving Mumbai Indians’ wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan. Kishan, who had been keeping wickets for the first 16 overs of the innings, had to leave the field due to an eye injury caused by a collision with fast bowler Chris Jordan.

In an unfortunate accident, Kishan ended up getting elbowed by Jordan. It happened when Jordan, completing the 17th over, was in the process of wearing his cap and failed to notice Kishan charging towards him. As a result, Kishan was struck in the eye by Jordan’s elbow. The impact of the blow forced Kishan to return to the dressing room and seek medical attention.


As of now, there has been no official confirmation regarding the severity of Kishan’s injury. The extent of the injury is still unknown, but it is confirmed that Ishan Kishan will not take part further in this game. Nehal Wadhera was asked to open with Rohit Sharma in the second innings and Vishnu Vinod replaces Ishan Kishan as concussion substitute.

In the event that Kishan is unable to take the field, it will be an unfortunate setback for the Mumbai Indians, particularly during their pursuit of a challenging target of 234 runs. The absence of their explosive opening batsman will require the team to make necessary adjustments.
