Devon Conway ruled out of IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings announce replacement

Chennai Super Kings’ star overseas signing Devon Conway has been ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season with a fracture to his left thumb. The defending champions have therefore signed England’s right-arm medium pacer Richard Gleeson as Conway’s replacement for the rest of the season at his reserve price of Rs 50 lakhs.

Conway’s absence may hurt Chennai in the longer run as he was the third-leading run-getter of IPL 2023. The southpaw scored 672 runs for CSK and was behind Shubman Gill (890 runs) and Faf du Plessis (730 runs) on the run accumulators list.

Conway’s contribution played an instrumental role in helping Chennai claim their fifth IPL title. The southpaw made his IPL debut for Chennai in the 2022 edition and scored 252 runs in seven games at an average of 42.00. His strike rate of 145.66 was also impressive and his performance gave the team management a genuine reason to believe in his abilities.
