Chennai Super Kings death specialist and the leading wicket-taker in T20 cricket, Dwayne Bravo, is injured again and may miss up to few weeks of the IPL.
The injury’s extent is unknown as the coach said his recovery period could be from a few days to a couple of weeks.

Bravo sustained a groin injury that kept him off the field in the game’s end overs against the Delhi Capitals.
As he was out of the field, he could not bowl the final over. The last over was given to Ravindra Jadeja, who had to defend 17 runs. He was unable to protect it with the Capitals winning of the penultimate ball.
Stephen Fleming later said Dwayne Bravo was disappointed at not bowling the last over.
Over the years, the final over of the innings was designated for Bravo. He is a threatening bowler towards the end overs with his variations and Yorkers, and he was sorely missed by the Super Kings in the last game.
Dwayne Bravo had come into the IPL with a knee injury suffered during the CPL.
The knee injury kept him out of the initial stage of the IPL.
In his place, the Super Kings used Josh Hazlewood and Lungi Ngidi.
Dwayne Bravo has bowled the third most Yorkers in this season. He has bowled 14 so far behind Bumrah(19) and Natarajan(40).
Bravo’s injury further depletes the Super Kings as they have already lost two first-choice players earlier this season.
They lost Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh, as both of them opted out of the tournament.
Bravo’s absence could open up a place for Tahir, who has been waiting on the sidelines, patiently for his chance.
Imran Tahir was the leading wicket-taker in IPL 2019 and is coming off a good CPL performance.
He took 15 wickets in the CPL.
With the pitches slowing down every day, Tahir could well help change the Super King’s fortunes.
