CSK vs DC: Why is Matheesha Pathirana Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

During the toss, it was revealed that Matheesha Pathirana is not part of the starting CSK playing XI for this CSK vs DC match on Wednesday. However, the Sri Lankan speedster is absolutely fit and part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. During the last match against Mumbai Indians, Pathirana bowled very well having picked up impressive figures of 3 for 15 from his quota of four overs. The right-arm pacer has played as many as 8 matches for CSK in IPL 2023 so far having taken a total of 10 wickets at a fine economy rate of less than 8.

“We will bat first. We have played a few games on this wicket. There are chances of this wicket slowing down. We can’t complain about this track. We try to keep it simple. We try to keep reiterating the same thing. Try to accomplish your plan. Try to execute your plans. We have one change. Rayudu comes in for Dube,” said Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni during the toss.
