Despite earning a much-deserved win against Mumbai Indians, there are injury concerns for Stephen Fleming and Chennai Super Kings. CSK beat MI by 20 runs and at the end of the game, had to deal with injuries to Rayudu and Deepak Chahar. Fleming in the press conference gave crucial updates on the condition of both Rayudu and Chahar.

Speaking about Ambati Rayudu’s injury, Stephen Fleming said that the scans were clear but Rayudu developed a bad bruise due to getting hurt on his left elbow.

“Rayudu’s X-Ray was clear, it was just a bad bruise at that stage and he lost little bit of grip. We feared that it might be broken but there is good news. Deepak Chahar’s was a cramp, we will check that, fingers crossed, they both will come through reasonably okay” said Fleming.

CSK coach Stephen Fleming further spoke about his team’s batting depth. Chennai from being 24/4 were rescued by Ruturaj Gaikwad(88*), Ravindra Jadeja (26)and Dwayne Bravo (23) to get them to 156/6 which proved to be just enough at the end.

“We are a little bit spoilt to have Dwayne Bravo at number eight and Shardul Thakur at nine. It is not by accident, we have designed it that way so that we could keep a faster tempo. It is good to have the depth and quality of batsmanship way down to number nine” said Fleming.

Fleming concluded by keeping a word on the overall performance and the win. It was CSK’s second win against Mumbai in their last eight meetings.

“Yeah, it was very special. We have had tabs on him since some time. Even last time we were here, we rushed him back given the shape he was in from COVID-19 because that’s how much regard and respect we have for his ability. The way he finished off the IPL last year in Dubai set him up for the first part in India and innings against Mumbai Indians was really special,” said Fleming during a virtual press post-match conference.
