Indian Premier League (England all-rounder Sam Curran, who has served for Chennai Super Kings in Australia, will not be available for the first match of the second leg of the season in the UAE. Let us tell you that the first match of this phase will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Sam Curran was also a part of the five-Test series against India.
Let us tell you that this English all-rounder player has reached UAE only on 15 September. In such a situation, due to the Quarantine rules, he will only be able to practice for 6 days and it is far from playing the first match. Meanwhile, he will not be able to be a part of the first match with Mumbai Indians. Today we will tell which players can replace him in the first match.
These three players can replace Sam Curran
1. Michelle Santner
Mitchell Santner is a left-handed batsman and spinner who plays for the New Zealand national team. Santner was bought by Chennai Super Kings for 50 lakhs. He hasn’t done anything special in IPL so far. Santner has taken only 6 wickets in 126 balls at an average of 24.50, economy of 7.00 and strike rate of 21.00.
In the absence of English all-rounder Sam Curran, Mitchell Santner would be a good option to include in the playing XI for Chennai Super Kings. His slow left-handed delivery can prove to be very effective on the slow pitches of UAE. He also bats well in the lower order, so he can prove to be very economical for Dhoni’s team.
