A big blow to CSK as Kedar Jadhav ruled out of IPL 2018


Chennai Super Kings all-rounder, Kedar Jadhav has been ruled out of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League due to a hamstring injury.

Jadhav suffered a hamstring pull during CSK’s match against Mumbai Indians on Saturday night.

The team management had confirmed on Sunday that the 33-year old would undergo a few scans at a city hospital so that the extent of the injury could be determined.

“The team landed in Chennai on Sunday evening. We would get to know for long Jadhav won’t be able to play after getting the scan reports,” said Kasi Viswanathan, CEO of Chennai Super Kings on Sunday.

With Jadhav out of the tournament, Ambati Rayudu, who opened the game for Chennai on Saturday, may be sent to bat at the lower order and if that happens, probably Murali Vijay or Faf du Plessis would be opening the innings for Chennai with Shane Watson.

Moreover, English paceman Mark Wood could be replaced by Shardul Thakur in the upcoming matches.
