Lucknow: Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) head coach Andy Flower reckons Mohsin Khan’s injury is a big blow for his side ahead of the IPL 2023.
The left-arm medium-fast bowler, Mohsin is expected to miss the majority of the 2023 season due to a shoulder injury. His absence, according to Flower, is a “body blow” for his team.
“It is a blow not having him, there is no doubt about that. We are hoping that he might come good towards the end of the tournament,” Flower said during a media interaction.
However, Flower admitted that he might not be able to play this season.
“But, quite frankly, I had pretty much written him off as a selection option, and if he becomes fit at some stage during the tournament, I see that very much as a bonus. But I am certainly not expecting that.
“So, whether we are weak at the death or in the middle overs, we shall soon see. I don’t think that’s accurate. Our job is not to worry about some of those opinions, our job is to play well on the field.
“He (Mohsin) was a brilliant performer last season and he showed how quickly can one move up in a matter of weeks. That’s really exciting for any young cricketer to witness.”
