Duleep Trophy-2022: Team India’s young player Venkatesh Iyer was seriously injured. Venkatesh, who was playing for the Central Zone team in the Duleep Trophy held at Coimbatore, was hit by the ball and fell on the field. While Iyer was batting, West Zone bowler Chintan Gaja played defense towards the bowler. Gaja, who was frustrated as the ball was hit for a six earlier, immediately threw the ball at Venkatesh. It hit Iyer directly on the neck. Due to this, he collapsed on the field. Soon the physio came and examined Venkatesh. In this context, an ambulance was also brought to the ground as a precautionary measure. But Iyer reached the dressing room while walking slowly. Later he was taken to Kaveri Hospital in an ambulance.
Meanwhile, there is a health update on Venkatesh Iyer’s injury. The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association said that Iyer is healthy and the doctors have examined him and discharged him. Meanwhile, Iyer, who retired as a retired heart in the match, came back to bat at the seventh position. But Outai reached the pavilion for 14 runs. The photos of this incident are currently going viral. Cricket fans are commenting that it reminded them of the incident of Australian cricketer Phil Hughes a few years ago.
