Chennai, Apr 9 (PTI) Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Kedar Jadhav was today ruled out of the rest of the Indian Premier League (IPL), due to a hamstring injury which he suffered in the season-opener against Mumbai Indians on Saturday.
Jadhav has suffered a grade two tear, coach Michael Hussey informed.
Unfortunately for us, Kedar Jadhav has been ruled out for the rest of the tournament. His hamstring scan didn’t come back so good. I believe it is a grade two tear. He is going to be out for some time. We haven’t picked a replacement yet, We will go through that process,” Hussey said ahead of clash against Kolkata Knight Riders.
“It is a big loss for us. He is a very good player for us, a key player for us in the middle-order,” Hussey said.
Jadhav returned from the dugout for a final over flourish to seal the game in favour of CSK after Dwayne Bravo set up the win.
