It is also interesting that Shivam Dube is the highest run-scorer of the Chennai Super Kings this season. There are no reports of any kind of injury, so the reason behind dropping Shivam Dube is not clear yet. DJ Bravo, who is the highest wicket-taker of the side this season is missing the game due to an injury.
New Zealand’s opener Devon Conway is back in the mix, and he is set to take his place at the top order along with Robin Uthappa and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Chennai Super Kings bought Devon Conway for a price of INR 1 crores in the auction. Conway has just played one IPL game, where he scored three runs.
Devon Conway has some impressive numbers under his belt in the T20 format. Conway has scored 602 T20I runs at an average of 50.16, courtesy of four half-centuries. In overall T20s, Conway has scored 3768 T20 runs at 43.31, courtesy of two centuries and 28 half-centuries.
