Bravo is injured, cannot  play for CSK for two weeks

Chennai Super Kings' star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will be out of action for two weeks owing to a grade 1 hamstring strain, the team's batting coach Mike Hussey said here Friday. CSK take on Ravichandran Ashwin-led Kings XI Punjab in their fifth match of the season today. The Trinidad cricketer, who suffered the injury during the team's loss to Mumbai Indians on Wednesday, has been a key player for the defending champions, but went for runs in that game.

'I can confirm it's a grade one hamstring strain and he is going to be out for two weeks. It is a big loss. Obviously (he) offers so much balance to the team and his quality as a player... So it is going to cause a little bit of rejigging of the team, but I am sure we will still be able to put together a very strong team,' Hussey said. 'And yes it is a big loss for us but we have had these challenges in the past and have been able to overcome them.'
