Sports injuries can be life threatening sometimes. There are instances when a sportsperson gets an injury and fails to recover from it on time. One such unfortunate injury occurred with the Lucknow Super Giants pacer, Mohsin Khan.

The left-arm seamer suffered a shoulder injury and was sidelined for a year. Moreover, he missed half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, but made a successful in LSG's triumph over the Mumbai Indians on Tuesday evening.

However, after a terrific win that has kept LSG's playoff dream alive, Mohsin opened up on his horrific injury and stated that he still gets scare thinking about the events that occurred and wishes that such injuries shouldn't happen to anyone. Mohsin stated that doctors told him that if he had gotten a month late, there was a possibility that his arm would have got amputated.

"The first thing I would like to say is, I wish this injury shouldn't happen to any cricketer because this was a really bizarre medical condition. My artery was blocked, there were blockages on my arm nerves, etc. In this, I would really like to thank my association (UPCA), Rajiv Shukla Sir, Sajeev Goenka Sir, Gautam Gambhir and most importantly family as they let me feel like nothing has happened to me."

He added: "So before and after the surgery, it was a really tough time for me and everyone supported me and motivated me. I had given all hopes of a comeback to cricket as I couldn't even lift my hand, I couldn't get it straight, here I would like to thank my physio as well."

"This was some kind of a medical condition that prompted even the doctor to say that, I get scared every time I remember this, if I had gotten a month late in getting my surgery done, my arm would have to be amputated."

Talking about the match against the Mumbai Indians, it was Mohsin Khan's last over that sealed the game for LSG. With 11 runs required off the last over, Mohsin showed his death bowling skills and gave away just 5 runs as LSG sealed the victory.
