Chennai Super Kings have signed Australian fast bowler Jason Behrendorff as a replacement for compatriot Josh Hazlewood for the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021).
The left-arm quick has featured in 11 ODIs and seven T20Is so far. This is Behrendorff’s second IPL team, having represented Mumbai Indians in 2019 where he played five matches and picked as many wickets.
Earlier this week, Josh Hazlewood withdrew from the IPL 2021 due to bio-bubble fatigue and the long international cricket season ahead.
Chennai Super Kings commence their IPL 2021 campaign with a match against Delhi Capitals on April 10, 2021, at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
