Faf du Plessis injured, suspense over playing in IPL 2021
The second phase of IPL 2021 is about to start. Its game will start from September 19. Chennai Super Kings have to play the first match in it. The match is with Mumbai Indians adorned with cricket masters. That is, the very first collision is not easy. And, on that the news that the inform player of the team has been injured. CSK’s captain is like a big blow to MS Dhoni. This injured player is not currently with the team in UAE. Rather, it is showing its strength in the Caribbean Premier League running in the West Indies. So far, as a captain, he has played both century and half-century innings. Runs have piled up. But, now the question is what will happen next. Will Faf du Plessis be fully fit by the start of IPL 2021? Will he be ready to score runs in IPL like CPL?
If Du Plessis becomes fit, then CSK’s troubles can increase if he is not well. Because, the South African batsman had batted well in the first phase of IPL. By the end of the first phase, he was at number three in the list of IPL 2021 runners. In the second phase too, he is a big hope for the team with the yellow jersey.
Injury before match with Barbados Royals
Now just know when and how Faf du Plessis got injured. Actually, he has a groin injury. He suffered this injury before the match against St Lucia and Barbados Royals played on Sunday in CPL 2021. Du Plessis is the captain of the St Lucia team. But in this match, Andre Fletcher captained in his place. The latest situation regarding Duplessi’s injury is not clear. So the concern remains. Faf’s injury has put Chennai Super Kings in a tizzy, while St Lucia’s chances of reaching the semi-finals have also been lightened. Because, in the absence of Du Plessis, his team lost the match to Barbados by 8 wickets. After this defeat, St Lucia’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals now rest on Guyana Warriors’ victory against Jamaica.
