IPL 2024 Updates: A Big Blow to CSK, Mustafizur May Miss Few Matches

A Big Blow to CSK, Mustafizur May Miss Few Matches

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fans are in for a scare as their star pacer Mustafizur Rahman is currently in Bangladesh due to visa formalities related to the upcoming T20 World Cup. Reports suggest he might miss multiple matches in the ongoing TATA IPL 2024.

This is a significant blow for CSK, considering Mustafizur is their leading wicket-taker so far, currently sporting the coveted Purple Cap. #His absence will leave a big void in the bowling attack, especially with crucial matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) coming up soon.

Who Can Replace Mustafizur?

With Mustafizur out, the big question for CSK is: who will fill his shoes? Here are a few possibilities:

  • Mukesh Choudhary: The Indian pacer has been warming the bench for CSK. This could be his chance to prove his worth with his raw pace and swing bowling.
  • RS Hangargekar: The young Indian pacer, known for his yorkers and death-over skills, could be another option. However, he lacks experience at the big stage.

A Crucial Phase for CSK

CSK is currently in a good position on the IPL points table. Mustafizur’s absence comes at a critical juncture, particularly with their upcoming clash against SRH. The next few games will be crucial in determining CSK’s playoff chances. CSK’s management will have their work cut out for them as they look to find a suitable replacement for Mustafizur. The Purple Cap holder’s absence will undoubtedly test the team’s depth and resilience.
