The frontline pacers for Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants, Mukesh Choudhary and Mohsin Khan, are likely to miss the championship due to respective injuries, which could be a major blow to those teams’ hopes of winning the IPL 2023 championship. The two fast bowlers are reportedly questionable starters for their teams. Mukesh is presently receiving treatment for a back injury at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. Kasi Viswanathan, CEO of CSK, is not optimistic about his potential return to the team.
“Mukesh Choudhary is what we’re waiting for, but we don’t hold out much hope. He was a pillar of our bowling team the previous season. It will be regrettable if he is left out “CEO of CSK said. Not to mention, Mukesh was one of the few top performers for CSK in IPL 2022, taking 16 wickets in 13 games.
On the other hand, is in Lucknow with the LSG team. The management, according to the report, is still unsure about his availability in the league, though. Like Mukesh, Mohsin had a fantastic IPL season last year. He picked up 14 wickets in the nine games he played for LSG, which impressed the management. His assistance in the IPL 2022 helped LSG advance to the playoff round.
LSG will begin their season on April 1 against Delhi Capitals, whereas CSK will play their first game on March 31.
The first goal for the Dhoni-led team will be to place in the top two teams after the group stage is over because CSK did not make it into the IPL 2022 playoffs. You have one more chance to make the final if you place first or second. Ben Stokes is available to CSK this time, and they will be hoping that he performs well this year so that they can win their fifth IPL championship.
