IPL 2021: MI vs CSK – CSK’s CPL stars Imran Tahir, Dwayne Bravo & injured Faf du Plessis arrive in UAE- Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman Faf du Plessis, all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and spinner Imran Tahir have arrived here to join the team bubble ahead of the resumption of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. However, doubts remain over Du Plessis’ availability in the first match as he is recovering from a groin injury that he suffered during CPL 2021.

Faf Du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo and Imran Tahir all participated in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2021) and hence will undergo only two-day isolation before joining the CSK bubble. “3x the Excitement Fafulous Champion Express,” CSK tweeted.

IPL 2021: In what is a major blow to MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings, Faf du Plessis is almost certain to miss the IPL opener. He sustained a groin injury while playing for Saint Lucia Kings in CPL 2021. The in-form South African batsmen missed the last three matches for the franchise on a trot, including the CPL Final. According to the information coming in from CSK camp, though CSK management is still hoping that Faf du Plessis will be available for the 1st match – but at the same time, Robin Uthappa has been asked to get ready for his CSK debut.
