Ambati Rayudu played the first match of the tournament thereafter he was suffering from hamstring injury while DJ Bravo has missed all three matches for CSK due to injury. Now both players have been declared fit to play the match.
“Rayudu has recovered well from a hamstring strain and will play in the next game. He ran and sprinted during training and batted without any discomfort at the nets,” CSK CEO K.S. Viswanathan told Sportstar on Monday.
“He bowled well at the nets,” said Viswanathan. “We have bounced back from adversity in the past. We will do so again,” he said.
Chennai Super Kings will play their next match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on October 2. CSK has played three matches in the Indian Premier League 2020 so far and wins only one match. They are standing at the bottom of the points table for the first time.
Ambati Rayudu scored a match winning 71 against Mumbai Indians in the first match of IPL 2020 before sitting out of the next two matches. In contrast, DJ Bravo still has not played a single match in the IPL 2020 after picking up a knee injury during the CPL 2020. It may be recalled that Bravo did not bowl for Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL final and arrived at Dubai carrying his injury.
It will be interesting to see which two players will leave out of Ambati Rayudu and DJ Bravo will play the match.
