Injured Rayudu could play in the next match, says Dhoni

CSK batsman Ambati Rayudu had to walk off retired hurt after being hit on the arm by Adam Milne

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni hoped that injured Ambati Rayudu could play in their next match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday. Rayudu walked off retired hurt after being hit on the forearm by Adam Milne's bouncer during CSK's match against Mumbai Indians at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.

"He was smiling. So, I think he hasn't broken anything. He still has four days (to recover). We are hoping he will play the next match," Dhoni said in the post-match presentation following their 20-run win.

In the second over, Rayudu tried to duck under Milne's bouncer as the ball kept low and hurried on to his left elbow where he had no padding.

There was a visible lump near the affected area as Rayudu was writhing in pain. After a check from the team's medical staff, he had to walk off with the team already two wickets down with three runs on the board.

Vice-captain Suresh Raina replaced Rayudu in the middle, but he too perished in the third over against Trent Boult as CSK were reduced to 7/3 after 3 overs.

However, CSK fought back through Ruturaj Gaikwad's unbeaten 88 off 58 balls while Dwayne Bravo slammed 23 off 8 balls to post 156/6 in 20 overs. Mumbai Indians only managed 136//8 in their chase after Bravo claimed 3-25 and Deepak Chahar got two wickets.
