With only three weeks to the start of the IPL 2022, five clubs will begin their matches on a losing note. Chennai Super Kings, Sun Risers Hyderabad, Gujarat Titans, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Delhi Capitals are among the teams experiencing a crisis. These franchises are facing a significant setback due to the absence/injury of important players.
Lets see the key players of these franchises who may not play for their teams for IPL 2022.
Chennai Super Kings
Deepak Chahar will miss the most of IPL 2022 due to a hamstring injury, which is a huge setback for Chennai Super Kings. Deepak Chahar tore his quadriceps and will need several weeks to recover.
Chahar was injured in India’s third T20 match against the West Indies. As a result, the selectors ruled him out of the Sri Lanka series. He is now receiving treatment at Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy.
Jason Roy, England’s opening batsman, has opted out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022. In Bengaluru’s major auction, Gujarat Titans selected Roy for a base price of Rs 2 crore.
He announced his intention to withdraw from this year’s competition via an official statement on his Twitter account. “Everything that has happened in the globe over the last three years has built up and taken its toll on me,” Roy explained. Roy stated that he wanted to spend more time with his family. He also stated that he will be watching every game of the Titans and will be rooting for them to win the tournament in their debut year.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Glenn Maxwell of Australia, whom RCB hired for Rs 11 crore, has decided to keep the wedding date with fiancee Vini Raman. As a result, he is expected to miss a few IPL 2022 matches. With AB De Villiers’ retirement, Maxwell is a crucial piece in the franchise’s playing 11 and the middle-orders.
Sun Risers Hyderabad
Simon Katich has opted to leave his position as Sunrisers Hyderabad’s coach. After a full disagreement with the manner SRH went about selecting their squad during the IPL Auction, he chose to ‘MOVE-ON’ in protest. CEO Kavya Maran’s choice to spend big money on Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, and two uncapped retentions but not on Rashid Khan irritated him.
Cricket Australian cricketers will not be allowed to play until April 6. Mitchell Marsh and David Warner are both in the lineup for the Delhi Capitals. Both were certain starters in the starting XI. Now, in order to compensate their absence, coach Ricky Ponting and captain Rishabh Pant would have to strategize properly.
The absence of their Australian players would hurt the Delhi Capitals (DC) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) the most. Due to quarantine regulations and their upcoming series against Pakistan, all Australian players will miss the first few games. Australian players will be accessible only from April 6.
