Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out of the remainder of the Dream11 Indian Premier League due to a groin injury.

Bravo, 37, missed the start of this year’s tournament due to a knee injury he sustained during the Caribbean Premier League.

He then hurt his groin on Saturday in the match against the Delhi Capitals and was unable to bowl his full quota of overs which had a bearing on Chennai’s final-over defeat.

“He is ruled out with a right groin injury and is flying back home,” CSK chief executive Kasi Viswanathan confirmed.

Chennai, who have lifted the IPL trophy three times and reached the final on five other occasions, suffered a difficult build-up to the tournament when Deepak Chahar, Ruturaj Gaikwad and several support staff tested positive for coronavirus in August.
