IPL 2024: KKR boasts of new swing player delivering ‘perfection’ – check out Chetan Sakariya

MI vs KKR IPL 2024: Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium is all set for another big IPL 2024 clash between Hardik Pandya-led Mumbai Indians and Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders. Before the match, Kolkata Knight Riders shared a video of their young pacer Chetan Sakariya and called it ‘perfection’. Social media users expressed intrigue over the video and wondered if Chetan Sakariya would play in today’s match against Mumbai Indians.

Chetan Sakariya made his debut for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021 and had a brilliant first season. The pacer picked up 14 wickets at an economy of 8.19 runs. After a great performance in the IPL, Chetan Sakariya received his first call-up from India and represented the country in 3 international matches.

At the international level, Chetan Sakariya bowled two T20s for India but couldn’t do much. He got just one wicket, while in the ODI format, the pacer got just one chance and secured two wickets.

After a beautiful start, Chetan Sakariya’s performance fell in IPL 2022 and he was subsequently released by Rajasthan Royals. In IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals picked Chetan Sakariya but his performance did not improve and the pacer was released again before the IPL mini-auctions.

So far in IPL 2024, Chetan Sakariya did not get a chance to show his potential but the video shared by KKR indicates that the pacer might get a chance against Mumbai Indians.

MI vs KKR IPL 2024: ‘Do or die for Mumbai Indians’

Hardik Pandya-led Mumbai Indians remain at the 9th position in the IPL 2024 points table with just 6 points from the ten matches they played. From here on, every match will be a do-or-die match for Mumbai Indians as losing more matches will take away their chances of qualifying for the IPL 2024 playoffs.

Notably, even if Mumbai Indians win all their matches from here, they still have to depend on the performance of other franchises to make it to the top four.
