England All-rounder David Willey Replaces Kedar Jadhav

The returning team at the IPL 2018, Chennai Super Kings, has signed the English all-rounder David Willey as a replacement for Kedar Jadhav. as per an IPL media advisory. David is the twelfth player from England to be signed in IPL 2018.

It was an unfortunate incident for both CSK as well as Kedar when he injured his hamstring in the inaugural match of IPL 2018 against Mumbai Indians on April 7. The CSK coach had earlier made a statement that Kedar had developed a grade two tear in his hamstring and he won't be playing the remaining matches this season. He also said, “It is a big loss for us. He is a very good player for us, a key player for us in the middle-order.”

David Willey is currently associated with Yorkshire team in the English County Cricket. He is a left-handed batsman and a left-handed fast bowler. He has two centuries and seven half centuries to his name, which have come while playing in various T20 leagues across the world. With an experience of more than 140 T20 matches, David will prove out to be the Trump Card of Chennai Super Kings this season.

Besides all the good news for CSK, this seems to have not went well with the Yorkshire's Director of Cricket, Martyn Moxon, who is upset with David giving an affirmative to CSK. Martyn said in a statement, “With the number of domestic T20 contracts available worldwide, it is important that we future-proof the County Championship. I will be calling for the introduction of a cut-off date, after which players will not be allowed to go to the IPL.”

As for CSK, David is an appropriate choice as he has a great record with both bat and ball in the slog overs. The way CSK have won their last two games, it is certain that David will get a chance in the next game when CSK takes on KXIP in Mohali on April 12 according to IPL schedule.
