Jamieson is still recovering from a back injury, and Magala will be joining the team at his auction price of INR 50 lakhs.

Chennai Super Kings had bought Kyle Jamieson for a sum of INR 1 crore in the IPL auction. Jamieson was also included in New Zealand’s Test squad for a two-match series against England, but unfortunately, he was unable to participate due to his injury.

An official statement reads, โ€œChennai Super Kings (CSK) have signed South Africa pacer Sisanda Magala as a replacement for New Zealand bowler Kyle Jamieson for the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.โ€

โ€œJamieson, who was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury, was bought by the franchise for INR 1 Crore.โ€

โ€œHis replacement, Magala, has rich experience in the shortest format of the game.
