It is a big setback for KKR as Chakravarthy is one of the key members of the bowling unit. The franchise has been underperforming thus far and is in the bottom half of the points table.
With the country reeling under the second wave of Covid-19, and players pulling out; it would now be interesting to see how BCCI handles this grave situation. Thus far, they have pulled it through somehow, but now things have gone from bad to worse as oppositions would be vary to play the KKR side.
The new date for the KKR vs RCB match is expected to be announced anytime today.
