The veteran campaigner has been struggling with injuries lately and recently underwent an MRI scan. While speaking to Express News, he said the decision to withdraw from the tournament was taken on doctor’s advice.
“My flight was confirmed for Saturday morning but after assessing my MRI report, late last night, my doctor asked me to rest for a few more days before getting back on the field.”
