Dengue fear for Wright

Dengue fear for Wright

Pune Warriors’ English all-rounder Luke Wright, who has played just one game in the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League, fears he could be down with dengue.

Presently in England to attend a family funeral, Wright was to join the Pune team for Tuesday’s match against Rajasthan Royals.

“This morning for blood test! They think I may have picked up dengue fever in India. Whatever it is I hope it goes very soon,” Wright, who has undergone blood tests to check for the condition, wrote on his twitter page.

In the only match he played in the Indian Premier League, against Delhi Daredevils, Wright conceded 24 runs in two overs.

Wright was picked up by the Warriors on the basis of his impressive outing with Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash and with Impi in South Africa’s MiWay Twenty20 competition.
