Indian Premier League 2020 | Dwayne Bravo could be out for a couple of weeks

Dwayne Bravo’s inability to bowl the final over cost CSK their IPL game on Saturday as Delhi Capitals knocked off the required 17 runs.  

Chennai Super Kings’ season of misery continued with Dwayne Bravo set to miss the next few matches after picking up an injury during the match against Delhi Capitals on Saturday.

Bravo’s absence forced CSK to use Ravindra Jadeja for the last over while defending 17 runs and Axar Patel hit the left-arm spinner for three sixes to seal it.

After the match, coach Stephen Fleming gave an update on Bravo’s injury.

“I think he has a right groin injury. It was serious enough for him not to come back and bowl. He could be out for a few days or maybe a couple of weeks,” said Fleming.

It is understood that the all-rounder has undergone a scan and the result will be known on Monday. In case, the injury is serious, Bravo could miss the remainder of the tournament since CSK’s last match is on November 1 against KXIP.

On the team’s sixth loss, the coach laid the blame squarely on the poor fielding. “We gave Dhawan a few lives. He was playing well, but we had opportunities to get him early and we didn’t take them,” said the former New Zealand captain.

“If we could have got him out early, the game might have been different.”
