New Delhi, Oct 9: With less than a few hours left for the Champions League T20 to begin at Johannesburg in South Africa on Tuesday, Champions League T20 Technical Committee has approved a few changes in the Chenani Super Kings, as Nuwan Kulasekara will be replacing Dwayne Bravo in the tournament.
S Anirudha and Dwayne Bravo, who have been a part of the Chennai Super Kings squad will be replaced by Shadab Jakati and Nuwan Kulasekara after Anirudh fractured his right clavicle recently and Dwayne Bravo picked up a thigh strain which also prevented him from bowling in the tournament.
Anirudha has been advised rest for 6 weeks which ensured that he missed the Champions League T20 that is spread across Oct 9 to Oct 23.
Apart from Chennai Super Kings, Uva Next and Yorkshire have also made a few changes, as the Technical Committee also approved the changes, as Uva Next player Upul Tharanga was ruled out of the tournament following a broken finger and would be replaced by Asha Priyanjana.
