IPL Extras: Bravo suffers shoulder injury



Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Dwayne Bravo suffered a shoulder injury while fielding during Kings XI Punjab's innings in their IPL match.


Bravo took a tumble while fielding at point region in the 11th over and got injured.

He unsuccessfully tried to stop a switch hit by Glenn Maxwell, off Ravichandran Ashwin, off the last delivery of the 11th over, with a diving effort and injured his shoulder in the process.

The West Indian left the field and was reportedly taken to a local hospital to ascertain the seriousness of his injury.

The status of Bravo's injury is yet not known. He did not bowl during Kings' run-chase.

CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said after the match that Bravo was playing the match as a specialist batsman. He added that he was not offering excuses for his side's failure to defend the huge 205 for four which saw them lose the match by six wickets.
