Kings XI Punjab‘s mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy has picked up an injury during the visit to Chennai earlier in the month.
Chakravarthy, who finished with figures of 1-34 on his debut, had fractured his finger in the lead up to the match in Chepauk against Chennai Super Kings placing him on the injury table since.
The team is hopeful that Chakravarthy, who was expected to feature regularly on pitches that assisted spinners, will recover speedily and add to the Shers’ arsenal.
Kings XI Punjab CEO Satish Menon said, “It’s unfortunate that Varun picked up the injury. But these things happen in cricket. We have great faith in his abilities and we can only hope that he recovers soon.”
