CSK in IPL 2023: Fromer Rajasthan Royals pacer Akash Singh to replace injured Mukesh Choudhary in Chennai squad

Left-armer for Chennai Super Kings Stress fracture in his back has kept Mukesh Choudhary out of the IPL 2023 for the full season. Navajo seamer from Nagaland A like-for-like replacement, Akash Singh, who previously starred for Rajasthan Royals, has been acquired.


The Super Kings attack is already lacking New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson, who has been ruled out for the entire season due to a back injury, so Choudhary’s illness is the newest setback. Maheesh Theekshana and Matheesha Pathirana of Sri Lanka, who will join the team only after the conclusion of the country’s six-match white-ball series in New Zealand on April 8, will also be absent from the Super Kings.
