Indian pacer Varun Aaron has pulled out of the remainder of the ongoing 2020-21 Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy due to a case of laryngitis - an inflammation of the throat from overuse, irritation, or infection.

Aaron, who last played the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) for Rajasthan Royals, was part of the Jharkhand squad in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy but was forced to withdraw from the domestic T20 competition after having been hospitalized to treat laryngitis.

However, the pacer is currently in the hospital but is stable and is on his way to recovery. 

Sources close to the development told WION, “Varun Aaron is currently hospitalized after suffering from laryngitis. He is being looked well by the doctors and is stable. Due to the development, Varun will not be able to play in the tournament and has pulled out.”

Meanwhile, Aaron played in the opening game of Jharkhand in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 against Tamil Nadu and bowled three overs in the match, but missed the second match against Bengal in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 2021 due to the infection. 

The infection will be a huge blow for Aaron as he would have been looking to find some rhythm with his bowling in the T20 tournament ahead of the IPL 2021 after having a not so good season last year with RR franchise.

He played only three games for the Royals and went wicket-less in the IPL 13.

Noteworthy, the 31-year-old has played 9 Tests and as many ODIs for India so far and scalped 18 and 11 wickets respectively with the last appearance came in 2015 in the national jersey.
