IPL 2024: Three Players Who Can Replace Devon Conway In Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have encountered a significant setback as the key player, Devon Conway is set to be absent during the initial phase of the IPL 2024. Conway requires surgery on his left thumb, and he will be unavailable for a minimum period of eight weeks.

This situation has created a problem for the Chennai Super Kings management and they will look to find a replacement who can settle with Ruturaj Gaikwad as CSK opener.

Cric Informer has come up with three massive names, who have the potential to replace the Kiwi opener in the upcoming league of IPL 2024.

Philip Salt is currently in outstanding form and adds the dimension of wicket-keeping skills to his repertoire. Known for his aggressive batting approach, Salt is a right-handed batsman who possesses the potential to be a valuable asset for CSK.

Salt has also the potential to become the wicket-keeper of the team once MS Dhoni retires from the tournament. Salt made a notable impression in the IPL during the 2023 season, participating in 9 matches. In these games, he amassed 218 runs at an average of 27.25. Salt recorded two half-centuries, with his highest score reaching an impressive 87 runs.

Dawid Malan – Dawid Malan of England was once the top-ranked batter in the ICC T20I rankings. He has played 62 T20Is, he accumulated 1892 runs at a strike rate of 132.49, featuring one century and 16 half-centuries in his impressive record. CSK has a reputation for selecting undervalued players, and Dawid Malan could potentially serve as an ideal replacement for the left-handed Devon Conway. Malan possesses proficiency against fast bowlers and exhibits sound technique against spin, making him particularly well-suited for the conditions at Chepauk, where seven matches are scheduled to be played.

Kusal Mendis – Kusal Mendis has not yet established himself in the Indian Premier League. However, his wicket keeping skills enhance his utility, presenting him as a valuable backup option for CSK. Kusal is known for his aggressive batting style and has the potential to provide CSK with the quick starts they frequently seek.

This Sri Lankan right-handed batter could serve as an apt replacement for Devon Conway, according to the CSK management, owing to his dynamic style of play at the top of the batting order.
