Sunrisers captain David Warner today said pacer Ashish Nehra will be out for a couple of games due to a groin injury he suffered during the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League here today.

“Nehra has hurt his groin. He will be out for a couple of games,” said Warner after his side’s 45-run loss to RCB. It was the first game for Nehra for Sunrisers. He limped off the field after bowling 2.1 overs in which he conceded 21 runs.

“We have to look back and look at positives and turn it around. We have a good batting track at Hyderabad. We should not lose wickets in clumps,” added Warner.

RCB captain Virat Kohli, who struck 75 off 51 balls and shared a 157-run stand with man of the match AB de Villiers (82 off 42), was all praise for the South African.

“We lost the toss and did not get what we wanted to. It was a really good effort from the batsman and Parvez showed composure. It is never easy for the spinners to bowl in Bangalore. Parvez was the stand-out bowler for me today. Last year, I and AB had a good partnership in Mumbai. He hit balls as only he can. It was a pleasure playing with him. He took some pressure off me,” said Kohli.
