In a massive blow to the 3 time Champions Chennai Super Kings, fast bowlers Jason Behrendorff and Lungi Ngidi won’t be available even for CSK’s next game against the KXIP.
This will certainly be a setback for Dhoni and his men who failed to defend 188 in their opening game and either of these skill-full bowlers could have helped make life easier for them.
The ‘Yellow Army’ take on KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings on Friday (April 16th) and their Head Coach Stephen Fleming in a recent press conference stated that the duo would not be available for their second match either – because of the 7-day quarantine upon arriving in India from South Africa.
The Kiwi Born left handed batsmen also reflected on his side’s recent loss against the Delhi Capitals but wasn’t worrying too much owing to early days in the tournament.
“We will learn a lot from being here for another four games. But don’t underestimate how much it takes to change the philosophy of a side. We are very much a Chennai-based side. We saw Mumbai struggle to a degree in Chennai the other night. They have got a challenge on how to change their tactics in Chennai, and our tactics have to be a little bit better with the ball in Mumbai.” stated CSK Head Coach Stephen Fleming.
