Ravichandran Ashwin, the star spinner for India and the Chennai Super Kings will miss the next two games for his franchise in this season of Indian Premier League 2015.

The reason has been a finger injury, which the spinner sustained in the 12th over of KKR’s innings against CSK. The incident occurred in the 12th over, when Ashwin fielding at cover was hit by a ball ferociously hit by Knight Riders’ Surya Kumar Yadav. Ashwin was seen to be in some agony and was holding his finger. His finger started bleeding immediately. The lanky off spinner was then taken to the team dugout and did not play any further part in the match.

Russel Radhakrishnan, the team manager of the Super Kings was quoted saying, “Ashwin has a split in his middle finger. We do not know how many stitches he will require.” “He has been taken to the hospital. The team has decided not to take Ashwin for the next two matches.” This means that the off spinner is all set to miss the clashes against the Knight Riders on the 30th of April, and against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on 2nd May.

Ashwin looked terrific in the two overs he bowled against KKR. He looked threatening and was not afraid to give air to the ball. The Super Kings stormed back into the game mainly due to Ashwin’s twin strikes. His wickets of Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey completely turned the game on its head. His loss will be a big blow for the Super Kings.

However, it will also provide the Super Kings with an opportunity to test their bench strength.
