CSK have gotten off a disappointing start in IPL 2022, registering only one win in six matches. In a big blow to the franchise, the team’s star New Zealand player Devon Conway is soon heading home to get married to his girlfriend Kim Watson.
Recently, the Chennai Super Kings team organized a pre-wedding party for Devon Conway, where he could be spotted having a good time with his Chennai Super Kings teammates.
Conway had been very impressive in international cricket over the last few months, but he did not receive enough chances to prove himself at the Chennai-based franchise. Now, since he is exiting the bio-bubble for his wedding, Conway will have to stay in isolation for 3 days before joining the squad again.
As a result, the left-handed opener will miss at least two matches of the Chennai Super Kings team in IPL 2022. He will be unavailable for tonight’s El Clasico match between the Chennai Super Kings and the Mumbai Indians. He will also miss the match against the Punjab Kings on April 25.
I was wanting to play under the great MS as captain: Devon Conway
Just before IPL 2022 began, MS Dhoni shocked everyone by stepping down as the captain of the Chennai Super Kings. Devon Conway was looking forward to playing under the captaincy of Dhoni. However, he could not accomplish the goal.
In a chat with the franchise after knowing the change in captaincy, Conway revealed the details of the chat he had with MS Dhoni. Here’s what the southpaw had to say:
“I was wanting to play under the great MS as captain. I had a nice little conversation with him. I said, ‘you’re sure you don’t want to captain one more season so I can play under you as captain?’ But he said, ‘no, but I am always going to be around anyways. It was really cool’.”
