IPL 2024: CSK’s Greatest Loss! Devon Conway of New Zealand Will Have Surgery; May is the Outcome

<p>The 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) leaders Chennai Super Kings (CSK) suffered a serious setback when they learned that New Zealand opener Devon Conway will need surgery on his left thumb, with a minimum eight-week recuperation time.</p>

<p>Conway was hit in the second Twenty20 International against Australia on his left thumb. After that, he had to leave the field so that he could get an X-ray, which revealed no visible fractures.</p>
<p>However, according to New Zealand Cricket (NZC), “the decision was made to operate on Conway with a likely recovery period of at least eight weeks following several scans and specialist advice.”</p>
<p>Conway is anticipated to recover in eight weeks, so it goes without saying that he will miss the first match of the 2018 IPL, which is scheduled to begin on March 22.</p>
<p>Since Conway was unable to participate in the first test, Henry Nicholls was substituted.</p>
<p>It said that Nicholls would remain with the team for the second Test against Australia, which will take place in Christchurch on March 8.</p>
<p>Gary Stead, the coach of New Zealand, wished Conway a quick recovery.</p>
<p>Stead said, “We will be there to support him as he begins his recovery, and we wish him all the best for his surgery.”</p>
<p>In the 2022 auction, Conway was purchased by the Chennai Super Kings with a starting price of Rs 1 crore. In 23 IPL games, the left-handed batsman has scored 924 runs with an average of 46.12 and a strike rate of 141.28.</p>
<p>The IPL is set to begin on March 22 at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium with a matchup between reigning champion CSK and Royal Challengers Bangalore.</p>
<p>Only the first 21 matches of the IPL schedule have been released. In due order, the schedule for the remaining games will be released.</p>
