Rajvardhan Hangargekar set to play his first IPL 2024 match? CSK bowling coach drops hint

Rajvardhan Hangargekar set to play his first IPL 2024 match? CSK bowling coach drops hint

Hangargekar has played two matches for the Chennai Super Kings in the last season but has yet to feature in the ongoing season.

Will we see Rajvardhan Hangargekar against the Lucknow Super Giants? The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bowling coach, Dwayne Bravo, has hinted at the young all-rounder’s inclusion in the side for the clash on April 23. The 21-year-old had gotten a chance to show his mettle last year.

The right-arm fast bowler’s performance in the IPL 2023 season was fine; taking 3 wickets in 2 matches. He claimed a wicket in every 12 balls he’s bowled and was averaging 20 but was a touch expensive, going at 10 runs an over.

Who’ll Rajvardhan Hangargekar replace?

If Hangargekar makes his way to the side, he’ll probably replace Tushar Deshpande. The two bowlers are similar, effective wicket-takers, but a touch expensive. However, in the last couple of matches, Deshpande hasn’t struck consistently. He has just 3 wickets in 5 matches, and if anyone, the sword may fall on his head.
