IPL 2010 News: “Injured Dhoni” out of IPL 3 for 10 days


Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni Has been ruled out of the next few IPL games after an elbow Injury. He may be out of action for the next 10 days.

Suresh Raina will stand in as Chennai captain. Dhoni hurt his elbow while batting against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Tuesday's match at Eden Garden. A delivery from new KKR buy and pacer Shane Bond hit Dhoni on the right elbow.

Despite the injury, Dhoni was Man of the Match for his unbeaten knock of 66. He also took a diving catch to dismiss Owais Shah off Lakshmipathy Balaji's bowling. Later, during the post-match presentations, the Chennai skipper was seen sporting a pack and bandage on his right elbow and shook hands left-handed.

Chennai Super Kings will play Delhi Daredevils at the Ferozshah Kotla in the Capital on Friday. With Delhi in great form, Chennai will be at a disadvantage without their dashing skipper. Chennai began the tournament badly, losing to the Deccan Chargers and the Dhoni-led win against the Kolkata Knight Riders had come as a shot in the arm to the team.
