Ravindra Jadeja won’t be a piece of Chennai Super Kings’ six-day IPL molding camp, which is scheduled between August 15 and 20 in Chennai. The allrounder is the main player’s name missing from the camp for Indian players and will feature skipper MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu among others.
Jaddu Won’t Be a Part in Chennai Training Camp:
“He has personal commitments,” Kasi Viswanathan, the Super Kings chief executive officer said, explaining Jadeja’s absence. But Jadeja will reach Chennai in time to board the flight to Dubai on August 21. The camp will focus on fitness primarily, along with some cricket training too.
Viswanathan said the Tamil Nadu government had allowed kept in touch with the Super Kings to lead the camp at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, behind closed doors. Bowling trainer L Balaji will be the main individual from the coaching staff present at the camp.
Head trainer Stephen Fleming and collaborator mentor Michael Hussey, are probably going to join the crew in Dubai by August 22 Viswanathan stated.
CSK Hopes South African Players Would Join the Clan Soon:
Viswanathan said the Super Kings were “hopeful” Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi, two of the three South Africans in the crew, would arrive at the UAE after September 1. As of now, South Africa has shut its fringes as a measure to contain the Covid-19 pandemic and nobody can go all through the nation without government authorization.
“When we spoke to Faf and Ngidi they said yes, we are coming. They have said that they will only be coming after September 1,” Viswanathan said. It is not clear whether both players would be part of the group of South African players participating in the IPL and take a charter flight.
The third South African player, Imran Tahir, will join the crew after completing in the Caribbean Premier League in Trinidad.
Viswanathan also said the South African backroom pair of Eric Simons (bowling consultant) and Greg King (physical trainer) would join the squad in Dubai on August 21.
