Ashish Nehra won't be a part of IPL 2017 play-offs

On the eve of the match, Moody said Nehra won't be fit for the remainder of the tournament. The left-arm fast bowler has hamstring problem, which he developed during a match against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) on May 6.

"Ashish Nehra won't be fit for the remainder of the tournament," Moody said.

The winner of Eliminator will play in Qualifier 2 against the loser of Qualifier 1, on May 19 in Bengaluru. Mumbai Indians (MI) and RPS are playing in Qualifier 1 tonight (May 16).

Nehra played 6 matches in the 10th edition of IPL and took 8 wickets.
