Notably, Rayudu and Bravo have been dropped as part of an experiment as the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) after the defeat in their last game against Mumbai Indians (MI) have officially got knocked out of the Indian Premier League 2022 playoffs race.

So, with only 2 games remaining in the IPL 2022, the MS Dhoni-led side decided to bring in some fresh talents like young leg-spinner Prashant Solanki and Sri Lanka U-19 pacer Matheesha Pathirana.

At the toss, CSK skipper Dhoni lauded mystery spinner Maheesh Theekshana and opener Devon Conway and informed about the 4 big changes to the playing XI. He asserted:

“We will bat first. It’s very hot. The wickets have been used quite a bit so it will slow down. Hope it stays the same throughout or slows down in the second half of the game. Theekshana the way he has come in and contributed. Conway at the top order have been positives. We have a lot of changes. Robbie, Rayudu, Bravo, Theekshana are missing. Jaggi, Solanki, Santner, Matheesha are playing.”
