Following a night of ecstasy and celebration after finishing at the right end of a humdinger against Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings had to endure a painful Wednesday.

It was a day on which its remaining six home matches in the IPL had to be shifted out of the city. And it was made worse when news came in on Suresh Raina’s fitness. He is out of cricket for the coming 10 days and will miss the side’s next two matches.

Raina, however, hadn't lit the tourney alight in the two matches he played, scoring four against Mumbai Indians and 14 on Tuesday against Knight Riders.

CSK’s most prolific batsman suffered a calf injury during the game against the Knight Riders.

The franchise has already lost Kedar Jadhav for the entire competition owing to a hamstring injury. And its experienced opener M. Vijay is recovering from sore ribs. The fitness issues are mounting for CSK even if the side has won both its opening two matches and both thrillers.
