IPL 2021: CSK faces difficulties due to overseas player unavailability

CSK has had many issues ahead of the IPL, which begins on 19th Sept 2021.

1. Faf Du Plessis INJURED

CSK is dealt a huge blow as Faf du Plessis is injured ahead of the UAE leg

Faf Du Plessis of South Africa sustained an injury in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2021), preventing Chennai Super Kings (CSK) from playing the second half of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021).

The Chennai Super Kings have already reached the UAE to set up their training camp ahead of IPL 2021, which will be held in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah, and most of the players involved in CPL 2021 were expected to join them after the tournament concluded.

Former South African captain, who retired from Test cricket earlier this year, has been with the Chennai Super Kings since day one, except for a brief stint with Rising Pune Supergiant during the time CSK was suspended from the Indian Premier League.

After it was revealed he suffered a groin injury before the 28th match of CPL 2021 between St Lucia Kings and Barbados Royals, his participation in the second half of the IPL 2021 is in doubt. Andre Fletcher, the Kings’ stand-in captain, announced at the toss that Faf will miss this match as well as possibly others. For the Kings, he scored an unbeaten century earlier this season.

2. Dwayne Bravo INJURED

Defeating the Patriots after Bravo suffers a groin injury ends their unbeaten streak.

Bravo returned to the field in his last CPL match, but he did not bowl, so he may still be recovering from his injury.

3. Sam Curran & Moeen Ali MIGHT MISS PLAYOFFS

England players selected for the T20 WorldCup may miss the playoffs next year, causing major problems for the IPL franchises. The England team management wants its full T20 World Cup squad available for the two-match series against Pakistan.

The likes of Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Chris Woakes, Tom Curran will not be available to their teams in the Play-Offs.

England Squad for T20 World Cup: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Tymal Mills, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood: Reserves: Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, James Vince

IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals Franchise Signs Star Caribbean Players Ahead of The Second Phase

While a lot has changed between phase 1 of the IPL and phase 2, one thing remains constant: the excitement that accompanies it. For IPL 2021 second phase, Rajasthan Royals have named West Indies opener Evin Lewis and pacer Oshane Thomas as substitutes for Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes. The event is scheduled to take place from September 19 to October 15 in the UAE and Oman.

Lewis has scored 1318 runs in T20Is for West Indies, including 103 sixes. In T20I cricket, only Chris Gayle (121) has hit more sixes for the West Indies. Lewis is currently playing for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the continuous CPL 2021 at Warner Park, where he has scored 6,62 and 30 so far.

In 2018 and 2019, Lewis has played for the Mumbai Indians twice in the IPL.

Thomas took five wickets for the Royals in 2019 at 7.90 economy rates. Thomas joins the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL as the second player from the Barbados Royals in the CPL. Jofra Archer was traded for Glenn Phillips of New Zealand recently.

Thomas can regularly bowl at speeds of 140 kph and recently bowled Gayle with a 142 kph dart at the CPL. Buttler and Stokes won’t be available for the Royals due to injury. Stokes has taken a break due to mental health issues while Buttler has quit due to the impending birth of his second child. Toxophilite also cannot play cricket for the remainder of the school year due to an elbow fracture.

On September 21, the Rajasthan Royals will face the Punjab Kings, ranked fifth in the focus table.

In CPL 2021, Chris Gayle Breaks Glass With a Six Off Jason Holder

The Caribbean Premier League began on a high note. The game was already close, and the league has just begun. The Guyana Amazon Warriors defeated the defending champions, Trinbago Knight Riders, in the opening match of the CPL.

By nine runs, the Amazon Warriors won. At Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts, Barbados Royals took on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Patriots performed admirably.

St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots dominated from start to finish with a 21-run win. The Patriots added Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo in order to compete for the title. Sherfane Rutherford top-scored with 53 off 43 balls, including two fours and four sixes.

For St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, ‘Dwayne Bravo’ hit an unbeaten 47 from 35 balls. He built his innings with four fours and six sixes. Fabian Allen scored 17 off 9 balls, including two fours and a six.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots scored 175 for the loss of 5 wickets in their quota of 20 overs. Oshane Thomas recorded three dismissals for the Barbados Royals.

Additionally, he maintained an impressive economy rate of 5.50, conceding 22 runs in 4 overs.  

Jason Holder hits a spectacular six off Chris Gayle

Chris Gayle’s signing will boost the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Universe Boss is the king of Twenty20 cricket and still has a few years left.

During the game against The Royals, Gayle hit a six off Jason Holder’s bowling. Holder bowled right in the slot, and Gayle hit a straight six. The ball broke the glass in the end.

Gayle looked dangerous right off the bat, but he got out after scoring 12 off 9 (1 four, 1 six). Oshane Thomas messed up Gayle’s stumps. In terms of run-chasing, the Barbados Royals lacked teeth in the batting department.

In 20 overs, the team scored 154 for the loss of 7 wickets. Hope scored 44 off 38 balls, including four fours and a six.

Azam Khan made 28 off 16 balls, including three maximums. Sheldon Cottrell and Dominic Drakes each took two wickets for the Patriots. St Kitts and Nevis’ Patriots won by 21 runs. Sherfane Rutherford was named Player of the Match.
