Richard Gleeson Replaces Devon Convay

Richard Gleeson, an England pacer, was added to the Chennai Super Kings roster to replace Devon Conway. Due to an injury, the New Zealand opener will not play in the 2024 IPL. Conway, who spent the previous two seasons playing for CSK, participated in 23 games and amassed 924 runs, with nine half-centuries and a career-high 92*. But he never made it to India for this version. Though it wasn’t to be, the CSK administration had hoped that the left-hander would be available for the second half of the competition.

Gleeson’s arrival will improve CSK’s bowling assault. The right-arm bowler has taken nine wickets in six Twenty20 Internationals for England. Gleeson has also amassed 101 T20 wickets and played 90 T20s. At his reserve price of ₹50 Lakh, he will join CSK.

LSG will be Facing CSK Next

Following their convincing victory over the Mumbai Indians in their previous game, CSK will take on the Lucknow SuperGiants on Friday on the two-paced field at Ekana Stadium.

The two groups had rather different experiences in their previous two games. While Ruturaj Gaikwad’s team, still headed by the incomparable Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is entering the match on a winning streak, LSG, led by KL Rahul, has suffered a string of losses.

Despite their firepower, LSG’s batting lineup doesn’t exactly inspire the highest degree of confidence, so it will be interesting to see how they respond to an attack in which every bowler has a unique skill set.

At the latter end, Matheesha Pathirana’s yorkers make him practically unplayable, but Mustafizur Rahman possesses three different types of cutters, one of which has a jumbled seam. 

On surfaces where the ball grips, as they frequently do at the Ekana, Ravindra Jadeja might be more than a handful. To take maximum advantage of the circumstances, playing Maheesh Theekshana as an additional spinner could be an option at Lucknow.
