The bad news came for the defending champion Chennai Super Kings, as the star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out for two weeks with hamstring tear. The news is confirmed by the batting coach of Chennai Super Kings, Michael Hussey.
Michael Hussey said,”It’s going to cause a little bit of rejigging of the team but I am sure we are going to be able to put together a very strong team. It’s a big loss but we have had these challenges in the past. Let’s hope we can do this again.”
“I am sure MS [Dhoni] and [Stephen] Fleming will be looking at Scott Kuggeleijn and assessing his death bowling skills. We’ve got Shardul [Thakur]. Mohit [Sharma] can bowl at the death as well. It’s about assessing the conditions. If it’s turning, I think one of the spinners can bowl at the death. I am sure there will be a lot of strategic thinking and it’s a key area of the game,” Hussey added.
