Mahendra Singh Dhoni dealt major blow as Kevin Pietersen out of IPL with calf injury

New Delhi: Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen has been ruled out of the rest of the Indian Premier League after being carried off the field with calf injury.

Pietersen faced a single ball during his side Rising Pune Supergiants` fourth match on Friday before hurting his right calf while attempting a run.

"Over & out, India! Injuries are all part of the job! Horrible tear in my calf! Sad to be leaving a really great bunch of boys but looking forward to being back with my family! London bound for a summer off! Vacation till November!Bye for now! Lots of love, KP xxx," Pietersen wrote on his Instagram account.

The 35-year-old batsman had also posted a picture of himself in a wheelchair in the dressing room, with strapping on his calf, alongside the word "Urgh!" on Facebook soon after the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Pietersen had managed to score 73 runs from four innings for the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side, who have struggled with three defeats in the cash-rich league.

The flamboyant batsman has not played an international match since he was controversially dumped by England following their disastrous Ashes tour of Australia in 2013-14.

Pietersen has since moulded himself as a Twenty20 specialist.
