On Saturday, Pawan Sehrawat of Tamil Thalaivas suffered a freak injury during the match against Gujarat Giants and had to be stretched off the mat. Even though injuries are a part of sport, no one would have expected another major injury to happen to a player in the space of a day.
In the match between Telugu Titans and Bengal Warriors on Sunday, raider Rajnish fell flat to the mat, after sustaining what looked like a knee injury; quite similar to what Pawan had suffered. The impact on the Titans raider was such that he couldn’t get up and had to be carried off the mat.
The unfortunate incident happened early in the second half, with the score 26-11 in favor of Bengal. Rajnish, the Titans’ main raider, raided and was looking for a kick to the right corner; that’s when his leg got stuck in the mat and eventually resulted in an injury.
Before the injury happened, Rajnish had scored four runs in 11 raids, while the other raider, Abhishek Singh had failed completely. Even though the extent of his injury is still unknown, on the face of it Rajnish might be out for a few games at least. If he’s not back soon, it could just be a repeat of last year for the Titans, where they only won one game.
not at the start
What role does the mat play in these injuries?
Rajnish stretched today with a very similar injury to the one Pawan suffered last night, albeit in a different stride. #vivoProKabaddi
