Spearheading the Sunrisers Hyderabad attack, the 37-year-old Nehra sustained a hamstring tendon injury during their IPL match against Kings XI Punjab on 15 May, ruling him out of the rest of the tournament.

"BCCI medical team confirms that India medium pacer, Ashish Nehra, injured his right knee during the Indian Premier League 2016. Assessment and investigation by BCCI medical staff revealed Nehra sustained a high-grade tendon injury and was recommended to consult Dr. Andrew Williams, orthopedic specialist in London. Post consultation, Dr. Williams has advised surgery on his right knee, which will take place shortly," Indian Cricket Board secretary Ajay Shirke said in a statement.

On his comeback trail for India, the fast medium bowler emerged as one of Sunrisers Hyderabad's key players this season, with nine wickets from eight matches at an average of 22.11 and an economy rate of 7.65.

The 15 May injury was the second time he has broken down this season. Nehra had missed four matches with a groin strain that he picked up in early April.
