Lucknow Super Giants pacer Mohsin Khan disclosed shocking details about his surgery. He revealed that the injury he suffered was so serious that a doctor had warned him that he might have lost his arm had he delayed his treatment by a month. Khan emerged as a hero in the LSG’s win over the five-times IPL champions, Mumbai Indians on May 16, Tuesday. Despite not being 100 per cent fit, Mohsin managed to defend 11 runs required in the last over against Tim David and Cameron Green. He revealed that the medical strain he faced was so serious that he might have lost his one hand.
The youngster left everyone impressed during his maiden IPL stint with the Lucknow-based franchise last year. However, he had to miss out on cricket for the rest of the year undergoing a long rehabilitation process after his surgery. Talking about his surgery in a post-match conference, he said, “Regarding my injury, I would like to say that, I hope no other cricketer suffers from it. This was a different sort of injury as my artery was completely blocked. The nerves in my arm had got completely blocked. The association, Rajeev Shukla sir, Gautam Gambhir sir, the LSG franchise, Sanjiv [Goenka] sir, my family, they all backed and supported me a lot.”
He further said that the delay by even a month could have cost him his arm. He added, "It was a medical related thing. I still get scared thinking about it. The doctor told me that if I was late by one month, they might have had to amputate my arm.”
Speaking of the game against MI, the Lucknow-based franchise had to defend 11 runs in the last over with big hitters like Green and David present on the crease. However, Mohsin asserted that he was confident about his skills and abilities. He dedicated the win to his father who was recently discharged from a hospital after being in the ICU for ten days.
