CSK Star player ruled of IPL 2018 due to injury

Chennai Super kings have suffered a major set back with their star all-rounder kedar jadhav getting ruled out of VIVO IPL 2018 due to hamastring injury. Jadhav suffered the injury last Saturday (April 7) during the season’s opening match against Mumbai Indians.

VIVO IPL 2018: Kedar Jadav Ruled out of IPL with a grade two hamstring injury.

The 33-year-old seals the match in a dramatic fashion by hitting a four and a six in the final over after Dwane Bravo’s mavelous knock brought CSK back in the game. But the big concerned for CSK franchise to look for a replacement for Jadhav as they heavily invested (INR 7.80 Crore) on him in the auctions.

“Unfortunately for us, Kedhar Jadhav has been ruled out for the rest of the tournament,” CSK’s batting coach Michael Hussey said ahead of the upcoming home match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

“His hamstring scan did not come back so good. I believe it is a Grade 2 tear and he is going to be out for some period of time. We haven’t picked a replacement as yet but we will go through the process. It is a big loss for us because he is obviously a very good player and a key player in that middle order. There are big shoes to fill for that little man I guess.”

Speaking about the recovery of du plessis and Vijay, Hussey said “I believe Faf is not in full training at the moment. He’s recovering from a slight side strain and obviously he’s got a small fracture in one of his fingers. But he’s going to be ramping his training up a lot in the next seven days and is hopeful to be available for the next against Mohali (Kings XI),”.

“From what I understand, Murali Vijay got a bit of a knock in the first few days of his training in his ribs. He’s been quite sore actually and slowly working his way back to full fitness. He has been training well though and hitting the ball nicely. There’s always 50-50 calls that can go either way and sometimes it’s just the gut feel of the captain and the coach of which way they want to go.”
