New Delhi:

Gujarat Lions batsman Brendon McCullum will not feature in team's remaining matches due to hamstring injury along with pacer Nathu Singh. The development has dealt a massive blow to Gujarat Lions' already thin chances of sealing a spot in the Indian Premier League play-offs.

McCullum has been advised three-four weeks of intensive rehabilitation so as to not aggravate the damage. 

"Thank you for all the memories, @Bazmccullum! Here's wishing you a speedy recovery. You will be missed!" team management said on its official Twitter handle.

Thanks to team mates,  coaches, support staff, owners and fans of the @TheGujaratLions for the opportunity to play for you all. Respect," McCullum tweeted.

McCullum has scored 319 runs in 11 games with two half-centuries while Nathu played only two games. 

McCullum endured a strain in his left hamstring during fielding against Delhi Daredevils on Thursday. Nathu suffered back spasms during the Lions' home game in Rajkot against Kings XI Punjab. Nathu hasn't played a match since then.
