Playing 7 matches this year CSK managed to win 5 out of them. Who can forget that humiliating defeat against Mumbai Indians when Pollard was all over their Bowlers. Things went from bad to worse when Covid hit the KKR camp and then the remaining Teams. IPL was suspended and it was to resume in Sep 2021. Placed 2nd in the points table, playing one match lesser than the Table Topper Delhi Capital they find themselves in a good position at the moment.

But things aren’t looking good as the tournament is approaching nearer. CSK may not have the service of their veteran Opener Faf du Plessis who sustained an injury while playing PSL. Faf was playing The Hundred when he noticed the reemergence of cerebral pains. After consulting medical staff Faf decided to pull out of The Hundred.

Faf made it public through an Instagram post which came as a shocker to His fans. CSK fans will be more worried if things get worse. Being the Top scorer for his franchise with 320 runs to his name Faf was their most trusted player this Year.

After The Hundred Faf was planning to Play CPL and Then IPL which was rescheduled. But the reemergence of cerebral pain has forced him to take some medical assistance. The only hope for Csk Fans is his recovery before the start of IPL for which he has to miss CPL.

His absence will hurt CSK a lot, Not only as a Batsman but as an opener and as an experienced player in all departments. Above all the result at last year’s IPl at UAE will be a concern with Mumbai Indians as their first Opponent of 2nd phase. So his Recovery at the Right Time will be the solution for many confusions.

Faf was debuted for CSK in the year 2012 since then he was a part of the team till now.
