Mumbai Indians to care for injured Joseph
Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians will oversee the entire rehabilitation process of Windies pace bowler Alzarri Joseph.
The 22-year-old got his IPL career off to a lightning quick start after claiming a historic 6-12 in 3.4 overs. Tragedy, however, struck for the bowler soon after as he injured his shoulder while fielding for the team in the very next game.
The damage ruled the player out of the rest of the IPL season. Despite the bowler not taking part in the rest of the tournament, the club is willing to foot the entire recuperation bill.
“He has been in Mumbai throughout and his situation was assessed, and the surgery was done on April 30. He is currently recovering and has no movement on the shoulder as it is strapped. One of his family members is here to stay by his side. All his treatment and rehab will be taken care of by MI. He will be shifting to the MI guest house in Navi, Mumbai, and continue physiotherapy for the next two to three months at the Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital,” a source familiar with the situation told IANS.
“After this, he will undergo rehab and hit the ground at the Mumbai Indians academy. It should ideally take around four to five months and even his family member shall stay with him during this phase.” (Sportsmax)
