CSK player Dwayne Bravo will most likely be unavailable for their second game due to a knee injury.
Dwayne Bravo has missed out the first game of the Chennai Super Kings due to his knee injury. Now, he may also have to miss out on their team’s next game as the said injury hasn’t fully recovered yet.
Bravo came to the UAE after having played with the champion team of CPL 2020 which was the Trinbago Knight Riders. After having done his unbeaten winning-title run in the CPL, he hasn’t been picked for CSK’s lineup against the Mumbai Indians for the first game. This is due to the fact that he had suffered from a knee injury prior to the kick-off of IPL 2020.
With that, he has been replaced by Sam Curran who ended the first match being the Player of the Match. As per CSK head coach Stephen Fleming, ‘Dwayne was injured so he is probably out for the first two games. But Sam's performance was a big positive. His attitude is quite infectious. His performance today was quite outstanding. Straight off the plane yesterday’.
‘If Dwayne was fit, it would have been a toss-up if he (Curran) had played at all. So he has taken this opportunity and put some pressure on’, Fleming added.
So far, defending champions CSK has won the first game against the Mumbai Indians by five wickets and four balls to spare. The 166-run victory came well with the contributions of Ambati Rayudu, Faf du Plessis, and Piyush Chawla.
After having won the first game, CSK is now off to face the Rajasthan Royals on September 22. To learn more about CSK and the other participating teams of IPL 2020, head over to Betwala.
