Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday said West Indies all-rounder Sherfane Rutherford has headed home after his father passed away. Rutherford left the bio-bubble of SRH in the UAE to be with his family.

Sherfane Rutherford joined Sunrisers Hyderabad only in the 2nd leg of IPL 2021 as he was signed as a replacement player for Jonny Bairstow, the England all-rounder who pulled out of the remainder of the tournament, citing workload.

"The #SRH family conveys its heartfelt condolences to Sherfane Rutherford and his family on the passing away of his father. Sherfane will be leaving the IPL bio-bubble to be with his family in this difficult hour," Sunrisers said in a social media statement.

Rutherford was in fine form in the recenly-concluded Caribbean Premier League as the West Indies star hit 263 runs in 11 matches. The 23-year-old was not picked in the West Indies squad for the T20 World Cup, which gets underway in Oman and the UAE from October 17.
