Decision on Faf du Plessis playing against Mumbai will be taken before the match
The UAE edition of IPL 2021 is starting with the match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. This first match of the second half of the season will be played in Dubai after a while. In this match, where Chennai Super Kings will have a chance to reach the top of the points tally, Mumbai Indians will have an opportunity to grab the number three position in the points table by pushing RCB back. Well all these things will depend on the result of the match. Before that, some big updates are coming about the playing XI of Chennai Super Kings in today’s match. This update is related to CSK opener Faf du Plessis.
Actually, a big update has come out on whether du Plessis will play today’s match or not. Du Plessis has looked better in CSK’s practice session. But, the decision on his inclusion in the playing XI for the match against Mumbai will be taken just before today’s match. Chennai Super Kings CEO Kashi Viswanathan told InsideSport.co that “Du Plessis has joined the team. He has also practiced after the quarantine. He did not suffer during the practice session. But, we will decide on his playing before the match.
Decision on Faf du Plessis before the match – CSK CEO
It is clear from the statement of the CEO of Chennai’s team that Faf du Plessis can also be available for selection in the first match. In fact, du Plessis was ruled out due to injury in the last 3 matches including the CPL final, after which doubts arose about his playing in the first match against Mumbai Indians. He had a groin injury, due to which the crisis deepened that how long du Plessis would not play for Chennai. Understand why it is important for CSK to play du Plessis with these figures. He is the third highest run-scorer in this season so far. He has scored 320 runs in 7 matches. During this, 4 half-centuries have come out of his bat.
Apart from this, it is already decided that young England all-rounder Sam Curran will not play in the first match against Mumbai Indians. No, not because of injury, but because Sam’s quarantine time is not over yet.
