CSA to take a call on Rabada’s further participation in IPL 2019
The fast bowler from South Africa, Kagiso Rabada missed the important game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) due to back discomfort. The Delhi Capitals skipper, Shreyas Iyer confirmed that the fast bowler complained of a stiff back and they have decided to rest him for important clash. But, the Cricket South Africa has worried now as they want their pacer to be fit for the upcoming World Cup tournament. So, CSA has asked for the scans of Rabada’s back.
So, Kagiso Rabada has been in terrific form this season as he picked up 25 wickets and leading the chart of highest wicket-takers of IPL 2019. This stat shows how badly they missed him during the clash against Chennai Super Kings. Without the best bowler of the season, the Delhi Capitals went on to face the massive loss as they were lost the game by 80 runs at Chepauk.
The senior official of DC has said that the CSA got in touch with them after Rabada complained of a stiff back. All the tests have been done and the reports have sent to CSA. The DC team management is eagerly waiting for CSA’s response. If the problem is severe, CSA will not allow him to play further games in IPL 2019.
“He just complained of discomfort and we got all the tests done because we don’t wish to take a chance with any of our players. With the World Cup around the corner, even CSA got in touch with us and we spoke to them and have now sent them the reports. They will check the reports and get back to us on how to go about Rabada’s participation in the IPL,” the official said.
“He has had an issue with his back and there is no point in risking him. We as a franchise also respect the fact that this is the year of the World Cup,” he further added.
