CSK vs KKR, 2024: Mustafizur Rahman And Pathirana Will Play Against KKR Or Not? Here Is The Update

There is a set of good news coming out for the Chennai Super Kings before their next clash against Kolkata Knight Riders. Mustafizur Rahman couldn’t play in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) because he had to go to Bangladesh for a visa process. But now, it’s reported that he’s coming back to Chennai and will be available for Monday’s game.

“Regarding Fizz (Mustafizur), we’re still not sure yet. His getting back here is not really in our hands as he’s flown back to Bangladesh for his passport. So, let’s see what happens. But as a team, we have to prepare for these eventualities,” CSK bowling consultant Eric Simons asserted during the pre-match press conference.

In the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mustafizur Rahman did not play and the team missed his slowers and cutters.

“It’s about seeing the conditions and understanding what the opposition intends on doing. What I’ve certainly been watching about batsmen is how much longer they have been waiting. Jos Buttler last night (against RCB) was waiting on the ball and hitting it,” Simons opined.

He further added, “A lot of the guys have worked on how to hit the slower balls and not just commit early. And that is key, whatever the length is.”

As of now, it remains unclear if Matheesha Pathirana will be able to participate in the upcoming matches. He was sidelined from the game against SRH due to a minor injury.
