Varun Aaron’s Injuries Might Hamper His Future – During the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka, Varun felt some pain in his leg and thus pulled out from playing further part in the match
Just when his career took a start again, pacer Varun Aaron has again been blighted by injuries.
During the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka, Varun felt some pain in his leg and thus pulled out from playing further part in the match.
Later it was announced by the Indian team management that, Aaron suffered a muscle strain in his right leg.
“Varun Aaron is injured, and he has been replaced by Stuart Binny in the Indian team for the second and third games of the India vs Sri Lanka ODI Series 2014,” a BCCI said.
Varun Aaron remains a key member of Indian squad and also could be vital in the coming months with the series against Australia and the World Cup in mind as well.
But with the latest injury setback, Varun’s career has taken a beating again! Not too long ago, the Jharkhand pacer was out for 1 year hiatus due a back problem but made a return to the international scene in January this year.
But what problem could worry the young fast bowler? In an interview to the Hindustan Times, Varun Aaron’s coach Subroto Banerjee, highlighted that the pacer has had only one major injury. He says, “He had only one major back injury in the past but otherwise he hasn’t had any serious injury. This is a different nature of injury, a strain caused by the pace at which he bowls. Some days’ rest should be fine for him. Look at how Ishant Sharma made a comeback after a long injury. Injuries are part and parcel of a pacer’s life. This shouldn’t mean Aaron should be ignored for the World Cup,” said Banerjee who also coaches fellow Indian bowler, Umesh Yadav.
Varun Aaron impressed one and all during his England sojourn with Team India and that won the former a stint at English county side, Durham. Aaron might not cut down his speed, but there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel! And Aaron must be clear enough to spot it.
