Toplist( after 2nd paragraph of article)-

“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. They never let me feel that I was going through such a thing. But, before and after my surgery, I struggled a lot and it was a tough time for me. At one point of time, I had lost hope of playing cricket as I couldn’t even lift my hand. It wasn’t even getting fully straight.”

The left-arm pacer further added that delaying treatment could have even cost him his arm too as well. Notably, the game against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday was his third match in the ongoing IPL edition as well saying:

“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.”

“There is pressure when you bowl the last over. I wanted to execute what I had been following during practice. I backed myself. I wasn’t thinking that I had 10-11 runs to defend. I was only bowling with the mindset that I have to bowl six good deliveries. I had confidence in my abilities. The ball was reversing a bit,” Mohsin Khan concluded.
