The third season of the Indian Premier League has sort of turned into a 'play at your own risk' tournament, what with the number of injuries seen so far. We have been witness to players from each franchise going down one game after another, and it seems to be a growing, but sad, trend with each passing day.

We give you peek into the casualty ward.

Gautam Gambhir

One of the first players to have his named checked on the injury list was Gautam Gambhir. Delhi Daredevils lost captain Gambhir to a hamstring injury.

Rajasthan Royals were dealt a double blow when opener Graeme Smith and all-rounder Dmitri Mascarenhas were ruled out of the third season with injuries.

The South African captain fractured his right middle finger when he took a brilliant catch to dismiss Delhi Daredevils opener Virender Sehwag, in Ahmedabad last Monday.

There was further trouble for the Royals after England's Mascarenhas injured his ankle while running between the wickets during the Royals' innings in the same match.

Justin Kemp

Joining Parnell on the injury list is his compatriot Justin Kemp.

Kemp's injury has dealt Chennai Super Kings with a severe blow. After losing the services of Dhoni, having another player injured was the last thing the Super Kings' camp would have wanted.

Kemp ended up hurting his back during the tied game against the Kings XI Punjab on Sunday night.

He left the field after bowling just one ball and did not bat at all. CSK will have their fingers crossed till Kemp is deemed fit to play.
