Huge Blow for CSK
CSK CEO Kasi Vishwanathan was having an interaction with Cricbuzz & revealed that it looks unlikely that Mukesh Choudhary will take part in IPL 2023 due to a back injury which isn’t been recovered.

Mukesh Choudhary who is in NCA undergoing rehab was asked whether he could make a comeback to competitive cricket as he has been missing from action since December 2022 when he was quite optimistic.
“I’m good and hope to get well soon,” said Mukesh Choudhary.
Concerns for LSG
Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) lethal pacer Mohsin Khan isn’t fit yet, when contacted by Cricbuzz, the franchise refused to make a comment. LSG’s first match is against the mighty Delhi Capitals (DC) on the 1st of April. There are chances that Mohsin Khan would miss a couple of games.
LSG perhaps would include the seasoned campaigner Jaydev Unadkat in their first match where he has similar traits to Mohsin Khan. CSK on the other hand would be worried as finding a like-for-like replacement would be quite tough where the franchise would be hoping that Mukesh Chaudhary is available for the latter half of the season.
