Chennai Super Kings (CSK)’s New Zealand batter Devon Conway will play no part in this season’s Indian Premier League (IPL) as he was ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to an injury. Conway had missed the first six games of CSK so far amid uncertainity over his participation in the tournament due to the injury. However, the opening batter has now been ruled out of the entire season. CSK have named veteran England pacer Richard Gleeson as his replacement.

“Devon Conway has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 due to an injury,” IPL said in a statement on Thursday.

The 36-year-old Gleeson, on the other hand, is yet to get a taste of IPL cricket. In 2022, he made his England debut at the 35 in a T20I against India and dismissed Rohit SharmaVirat Kohli and Rishabh Pant to end the match with figures of 3/15.

He has played 6 T20Is in total for England.

Additionally, Gleeson has played 90 T20s and picked 101 T20 wickets. He will join CSK for his reserve price of  Rs 50 Lac,” the statement added.
