Stephen Fleming: Ambati Rayudu injury Hand Was Bruising
The true reason, however, was revealed by Fleming following CSK’s 11-run defeat. “The first check near the break, and his hand bruise.” It simply a matter of icing it and getting it down, as well as some padding around the glove. ” The same hand that been broken a while ago, so it’s still pretty tender, and a knock like that can obviously cause some damage,” Fleming explain.
Meanwhile, CSK captain Ravindra Jadeja impressed with Rayud’s performance. He also believes CSK would have crossed if the other players had performed well. “He [Rayudu] batted brilliantly throughout, but as I mentioned earlier, it would have been nice if we could have limited them to under 175.” “We’re not getting good starts in the first six overs; that’s where we’re lacking, and hopefully, we’ll come back stronger,” Jadeja said.
Meanwhile, CSK is in big trouble, having won only two of their eight games in the IPL 2022. To qualify for the playoffs, the four-time champions must now win all six of their remaining games, which will be difficult. On May 1, they will face Sunrisers Hyderabad.
