The Chennai Super Kings could be dealt a major setback when Ambati Rayudu was hurt in the series opener against KKR. After being wounded while fielding, the player was observed leaving the field in the middle of the game. CSK could not score big while batting first, but they still have a few positives from the contest.
MS Dhoni’s flashy batting demonstrated the veteran’s form, which is a positive indication for the team. Apart from MS Dhoni’s innings, Dwayne Bravo took three wickets and kept CSK in the game for the time being. There have been no more updates on Ambati Rayudu’s injury. It’s still unclear whether or not the player will be available for further consideration.
Ambati Rayudu injured against KKR
In the first match of the IPL 2022 season, Chennai Super Kings faced Kolkata Knight Riders. Apart from the loss, the fact that Ambati Rayudu, the seasoned batsman, was injured while fielding is troubling news for the CSK club. While attempting a slide to preserve a boundary, Rayudu’s knee became trapped.
The 36-year-old had to leave the field and did not return for the rest of the match. However, there has been no official update on the injury’s status or severity.
Rayudu has been the team’s asset for the last four years, and fans of the men-in-yellow will be hoping for his inclusion in the starting lineup. We’ll have to wait for the franchise’s formal confirmation.
