Chennai Super Kings captain M.S. Dhoni will miss IPL action for the next 10 days due to the elbow injury he sustained during a match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday
Chennai Super Kings’ Indian Premier League campaign received a huge blow on Wednesday with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni being ruled out of action for the next 10 days because of an elbow injury.
“Dhoni will be out of action for the next 10 days and the exact nature of his injury is being examined by the doctors at a private hospital here,” a team management source told PTI.
Dhoni underwent an x-ray test after being hit by a rising Shane Bond delivery in yesterday’s match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens even though Coach Stephen Fleming ruled out any major injury to the India skipper.
The source, however, said that Dhoni will be travelling with the team to Delhi, where the Chennai side will take on Delhi Daredevils at Ferozeshah Kotla on Friday.
“He will be travelling with the team to Delhi,” the source said.
“An official announcement will be made once the nature of the injury is determined by the doctors,” he added.
Apart from the match against the Daredevils, the injury also rules Dhoni out of Chennai Super Kings’ matches against Kings XI Punjab (March 21), Royal Challengers Bangalore (March 23) and Mumbai Indians (March 25).
