All-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out of the ongoing IPL with a groin injury, dealing a massive blow to the already struggling Chennai Super Kings.
The 37-year-old Bravo, an integral part of the CSK team for years now, couldn’t bowl the final over against Delhi Capitals in a match in Sharjah on October 17. Captain M. S. Dhoni was forced to bowl Ravindra Jadeja, who conceded three sixes.
“Dwayne Bravo is ruled out of the IPL due to a groin injury,” CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan told PTI.
Bravo played six games and scored only seven runs in two innings. However, he got six wickets in as many games with an economy rate of 8.57.

CSK’s campaign has already been derailed after seven losses from 10 games. It is currently currently lying at the bottom of the points table.
CSK was already hamstrung by the absence of senior players Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, both of whom pulled out citing personal reasons. The poor form of some of the senior players like skipper Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav has also hampered the side this season.
