Indian Premier League: After getting replaced by England’s Luke Wood in the Mumbai Indians (MI) squad of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to a fractured left fibula, fast bowler Jason Behrendorff in a social media post revealed that it was a "freak training incident" which resulted in his leg being broken.

Behrendorff was hit by a ball while batting in the nets that missed his pad and smacked him flush just above the left ankle, breaking his left fibula at the WACA field last Thursday, before leaving for India for the IPL.

However, the 33-year-old Aussie does not require surgery but the recovery timeline is roughly eight weeks which ruled him out of the IPL. Moreoevr, it may also lead to his potential absence from the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 in June.
