Before the start of the competition, players like Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaekwad were Covid-19 positive and had to go through a quarantine period.
Experienced players like Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina pulled out of the competition which compounded problems for Chennai Super Kings before the start of Indian Premier League.
All-rounder Dwayne Bravo also missed the early part of the competition after having a knee niggle during Caribbean Premier League. In this year’s competition, Dwayne Bravo did not much with the bat. With the ball in hand, Bravo claimed six wickets in six outings at an economy rate of 8.57.
Pacer Josh Hazlewood came in place of Dwayne Bravo in the playing XI for the previous game against Rajasthan Royals. Chennai Super Kings have only registered three matches out of ten played this season. Chennai have players like Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir and Lungi Ngidi to fill the void left by Dwayne Bravo.
