IPL 2020: CSK Coach Reveals Dwayne Bravo To Miss Few Matches Due To Injury
After facing a terrible slew of losses in the Indian Premiere League (IPL 2020), Chennai Super Kings received some more bad news that might affect their future matches for the worse.
During the last CSK Vs. DC match, CSK was put in a precarious position when they needed to defend 16 runs in 6 balls. Dhoni would have ideally handed Dwayne Bravo the task, but since Bravo suffered a groin injury, Dhoni gave the ball to Ravindra Jadeja, who was unsuccessful.
But now, Bravo may be unable to perform in future CSK matches as well. According to head coach Stephen Fleming, the all-rounder could be “out for a few days or a couple of weeks” due to the groin injury.
“He (Bravo) seems to have a right groin injury, obviously it was serious enough to keep him from coming back to the field, he is just really disappointed that he was not able to bowl the final over, that’s pretty much for what he is in the team for,” Fleming said.
“He would have to be reassessed going forward, at this stage, you would imagine that it would take a few days or a couple of weeks,” Fleming said after CSK’s five-wicket loss.

Fleming later spoke about Jadeja taking over for Bravo in the last over during the post-match press conference.
“Unfortunately Dwayne Bravo got injured so he could not bowl the last over, naturally he is a death bowler, that’s the way our season has been going, we are having challenges thrown at us,” said Fleming.
“Jadeja was not planned to bowl at the death, but with Bravo getting injured, we did not have any other option. We did well to create a situation where it could have worked for us but we have to keep working hard and turn it around.”
