Meanwhile, the three-time IPL champions have confirmed that Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood’s availability for the second half of IPL 2021 at the UAE. Hazlewood left the first half of IPL 2021 midway due to the bio-bubble fatigue in India but he has assured his availability for the second left which is scheduled to commence from September 19. Interestingly, CSK will kick-start the second half of IPL against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians.
CSK would look to start the second leg with a win. They lost to the defending champions and hence they would like to turn things around.
