Bravo concern for Super Kings

18 October 2020 23:00:51 GMTPlus11

Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming has revealed key bowler Dwayne Bravo could be sidelined for a "few days or a couple of weeks" with a groin injury.

Bravo sustained the injury in Chennai's Indian Premier League encounter with Delhi Capitals in Sharjah last time out and was unable to bowl the final over in the five-wicket defeat.

Ravindra Jadeja was instead tasked with defending 16 runs off the final over but failed to do so and last year's IPL runners-up Super Kings have now lost six of their nine matches in 2020.

Bravo missed his side's first three matches of the IPL season with a knee problem and the prolific bowler is now expected to miss a handful of games with his latest problem, with coach Fleming revealing the Windies bowler was "desperately disappointed" not to bowl the final over last time out.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, coach Fleming said: "He seems to have a right groin injury, I think, and it was obviously serious enough to keep him off the field.

"He's obviously desperately disappointed that he couldn't bowl the last over - that's what he's pretty much in the team for.

"He will have to be reassessed going forward, but at this stage you'd imagine it's going to take a few days or a couple of weeks, but we will assess that tomorrow."

Chennai Super Kings are 2.00 to beat Rajasthan Royals next time out. The Royals are 1.80 to win.
