CSK Coach On Magala’s Injury

Fleming revealed that Magala had to leave the field due to a split webbing after bowling two overs, causing the team to lose another player for the second consecutive game. The team already had a thin line-up, and the list of injured players, including Ben Stokes and Deepak Chahar, is growing. Fleming acknowledged that many players are broken after a big domestic season, but they need to find solutions for the injuries.

Fleming stated that the team has to operate with limited resources and adapt to the situation, as injuries are not uncommon in T20. He also mentioned that the captain has to think on his feet if bowlers keep getting injured. The team needs to find solutions in the next four days.
