New Delhi, 1 April With the start of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, there are only a few counts left. All the teams are working hard for the upcoming season. Meanwhile, news is coming that Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood will not participate in IPL 2021 due to his personal reasons. After this decision of Hazelwood, the team of Chennai Super Kings has received a big setback. In such a situation, for the upcoming season, the three bowlers who can be included in the Chennai team in place of Hazlewood, their names are as follows-
The name of 26-year-old young Australian fast bowler Billy Stanlake comes first in this list. Stanlake may upset the opposition team due to his tall stature. Apart from this, he also has experience of playing IPL. Stanlake has played six matches for the team of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore, taking seven wickets at an average of 28.6 in six innings. His best bowling performance in the IPL is two wickets, spending 21 runs.

The second big name in this list comes from veteran New Zealand fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan. McClenaghan has played 56 matches in the IPL, taking 71 wickets in 56 innings at an average of 25.4. His best bowling performance in IPL is four wickets, spending 21 runs. In such a situation, if McLaneghan gets a chance in the CSK team, then he can prove to be very effective for the team.
The third big name in this list comes from Australian 29-year-old fast bowler Sean Abbott. Abbott can prove to be very effective in the middle order for the team. Playing Abbott’s Slower and Bouncers can prove quite challenging for the opposition batsmen.
