The Australian fast bowler, James Pattinson, will not be able to play for his team Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) because of an abdominal problem. He will go through surgery in a couple of days and he might be unfit for the Champions Trophy as well.

Pattinson has become the second Aussie player to be ruled out of IPL because of injury. Before this, Michael Clarke was also ruled out because of back injury.
