Mumbai Indians (MI) wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan sustained an injury after a direct throw from his teammate Hardik Pandya hit near his right eye during their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and was immediately taken off the field. The incident happened in 13th over of RCB innings when a throw from fielder Pandya bounced off the practice pitch area and hit Kishan's face, leaving the 19-year-old writhing in pain. Kishan was replaced by Aditya Tare.

A day after the match, Pandya posted a photo with Kishan on Twitter and tendered an apology to the young wicketkeeper-batsman.

"Mera cutie pie. Sorry bhai! Stay strong, @ishankishan23," Pandya's tweet read.

Kishan was bought by the Mumbai outfit for Rs. 6.2 crore in the IPL 2018 players' auction.

In his 20-match IPL career, Kishan has scored 412 runs at an average of 21.68. He has one half-century to his name.

With one win and three defeats, Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians are sixth in the points table.

The three-time IPL champions will take on Ajinkya Rahane' Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on April 22.
