Reports: CSK given green light for replacing Sam Curran

According to the reports, Chennai Super Kings have obtained the permission to replace the injured Sam Curran

While Sam Curran has only played two games for CSK since the restart of the tournament in the Middle East, his injury now limits the franchise to foreign options. Curran, earlier this week was ruled out of the competition and the subsequent T20 World Cup due to a back injury. According to a report on Cricbuzz, CSK’s CEO Kasi Viswanathan confirmed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has approved request to sign a replacement. 

"We are going for practice now (on Wednesday evening). We'll take a call after the nets. We are aware that we don't have much time to seek the replacement. We will decide soon whom to take as well as whether to take," Viswanathan said, reported Cricbuzz.

The reports also stated that the franchise is considering signing one of the four West Indian pacers in the Middle East - Fidel Edwards, Sheldon Cottrell, Dominic Drakes and Ravi Rampaul with three of them already in Dubai as net-bowlers/standby bowlers. The franchise is racing against time to sign the replacement, given that the league rules does not permit signing after the group stage. 

With Chennai’s last league encounter on October 7 (Thursday), they will have to make the decision at the earliest, with the English all-rounder being ruled out of the competition.
