There’s some piece of good news coming for the Chennai Super Kings’ fans, as the star all-rounder Moeen Ali has recovered from his ankle injury and was seen playing in the nets on Friday. Here in this article, we talk about the return of Moeen Ali after his Ankle Injury.

Stephan Fleming, the head coach of CSK had earlier told me that Moeen’s injury is not serious and the English will likely return after a week.

“He rolled his ankle, X-rays revealed there was no fracture but there is always a recovery period maybe seven days. We are hopeful the recovery will be quick given that there is no fracture,” Fleming said at the post-match press conference on Monday.

Although Moeen Ali, the retained all-rounder, was not in the previous game when he was fit, Ali failed to carry his 2021 charisma into this year’s IPL and struggled to make runs with the bat.

The Englishman was instrumental in CSK’s title victory in 2021, scoring 357 runs with the bat and taking six wickets with the ball.

However, he has struggled with his form this season, scoring only 87 runs at an average of 17.40 in five matches. He was sparkless with the ball as well as he is yet to take a single wicket this season.

Considering his current form one can’t guarantee success, but his return to the playing XI will give them a strong balance if he performs according to his caliber.

This season, the defending champions have been hampered with injuries, with their speedsters Deepak Chahar and Adam Milne already ruled out of the tournament.

With only two wins in eight games, the Chennai team badly needed to win all of their upcoming matches to remain in the playoffs race.

Chennai Super Kings will play their next match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on May 01, 2022, at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.

The match will start at 7:30 pm. You can watch this contest on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 (Hindi), Star Sports (HD), Star Sports Tamil, Star Sports Telugu, Star Sports Kannada, and Star Sports Bangla. The online streaming of the match will be available on the Disney+Hotsar.
