Major Blow for CSK: Devon Convay Ruled out of IPL 2024 until May

Injured Conway out of IPL, CSK add Richard Gleeson to squad

New Zealand and Chennai Super Kings cricket team’s player Devon Conway won’t be playing in the IPL 2024 due to an injury to his left thumb. He got hurt during a match against Australia earlier in the year and needed surgery. Originally, the team hoped he’d be back by May, but now it’s confirmed he’ll miss the entire season. Earlier it was reported that Conway will join the team in May, however, it has not turned out to be the case.

Conway was a big part of CSK’ victory in the IPL last year. He scored a lot of runs and played a crucial role in the team’s success. His absence leaves a gap in the team, especially in the wicketkeeping position. The team only has one backup, a young player named Aravelly Avanish.

Richard Gleeson replace injured Devon Conway

To fill Conway’s spot, Chennai Super Kings have brought in Richard Gleeson, a fast bowler from England. Gleeson is known for his bowling skills and has played in various cricket leagues around the world. He’s experienced and could help the team in Conway’s absence.

Mustafizur Rahman, another key player for Chennai Super Kings, is also missing some matches due to his international commitments. But the team hopes to have him back soon. In the meantime, Gleeson’s addition will provide some much-needed support in the bowling department.

Gleeson’s cricket journey has been quite interesting. He started playing professionally later than most players but quickly made a name for himself. He’s played for different teams in different leagues and has a lot of experience in the T20 format.

Despite being a new addition to the Chennai Super Kings squad, Gleeson is no stranger to pressure situations. He’s played in high-stakes matches before and knows how to perform under stress. His presence will not only strengthen the team but also provide valuable insights and guidance to younger players.

While Conway’s absence is a setback for Chennai Super Kings, the addition of Richard Gleeson brings hope and excitement to the team and its fans. With his skills and experience, he could prove to be a valuable asset in their quest for another IPL title.
