Chennai Super Kings have been managing a physical injury worry after all rounder Moeen Ali hurt his lower leg during an instructional course. ESPNcricinfo has discovered that the establishment is sitting tight to examine results after he got the injury on Saturday.
As a result, all things considered, Moeen is at risk for missing Super Kings’ following couple of matches. The reigning champs are scheduled to play two games this week: on Monday against Punjab Kings, and on May 1 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Moeen kept playing on April 17 against Gujarat Titans, a nearby match that Super Kings lost by three wickets.
Two days prior to getting harmed, Moeen was dropped for the match against Mumbai Indians, which his group won, and where New Zealand turn bowling allrounder Mitchell Santner replaced him.
Rather than his heavenly structure in the 2021 season, Moeen has battled in this IPL. He showed up later than expected for the current year, and subsequently missed the competition opener attributable to a postponement in getting a visa to make a trip to India from the UK.
In the five matches he has played, Moeen has scored 87 runs at an average of 17.40, including a 48 against Sunrisers. Indeed, even with the ball, he has gone wicketless up to this point: in eight overs, he gave 68 runs.
Super Kings have been burdened with wounds this season with seam bowlers Deepak Chahar and Adam Milne both ruled out.
At the midway stage, Super Kings, who this season delegated Ravindra Jadeja as the replacement to MS Dhoni as skipper, have kept only two wins in seven matches, and as of now possess the 10th rank in the points table.
From now they have to win each and every match to ensure their spot in the playoffs contention.
