Star left-arm fast bowler named as a replacement by Chennai Super Kings in place of Sam Curran for the playoff matches of IPL 2021
Sam Curran, an all rounder of Chennai Super Kings was ruled out of Indian Premium League 2021 because of a back injury. Along with that, the left-arm pace bowling all rounder will miss the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup event.
Dominic Drakes from the West Indies has been selected as a replacement by Chennai Super Kings for Sam Curran. Drakes has been in the United Arab Emirates as a net bowler which would lead to making his debut for the team in the IPL. It needs to be understood that Dominic has not yet made his debut for his national team yet.
Sam Curran has been part of the Chennai Super Kings since last year and is considered to be one of the best players among the Chennai Super Kings squad.
Sam Curran said that he felt extremely sad that he was going to miss the upcoming IPL 2021 Playoffs and the ICC T20 World Cup because of his injury.
He was quoted saying, “I absolutely loved my time with Chennai this season. The boys are doing extremely well. It hasn’t really sunk in but I am leaving the team. We are in a fantastic space. The boys are playing really good cricket. I am going to be supporting them from wherever I am in the next few days.”
