2017 IPL Season 10 - Injured Brendon McCullum (Gujarat Lions)out for remainder of IPL

Brendon McCullum will miss the last three matches of Gujarat Lions' IPL 2017 season after suffering a left hamstring strain in the match against Delhi Daredevils on Thursday May 04,2017.

 Lions were knocked out of contention for playoffs after their seven-wicket defeat to Daredevils.

Brendon McCullum's injury reduces Lions' pool of fit overseas players to four: Dwayne Smith, Aaron Finch, James Faulkner and UAE's Chirag Suri. Injuries had earlier ruled out allrounder Dwayne Bravo and fast bowler Andrew Tye, while Jason Roy has returned to England on international duty.

With 319 runs in 11 matches at a strike rate of 147, Brendon McCullum is currently the second-highest run-getter for Lions this season, following up on the 354 runs he hit last season

In a tweet, McCullum stated that the "compressed tournament and long travel" had taken a toll.
