Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were dealt with a huge blow even before the start of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. "So that's the end of the story", Fleming said. He was the only express fast bowler in the yellow army and his ruling out was a major setback for them and all the eyes were on his replacement. "In finding an alternative for Ngidi, we had to be a bit more selective based on price (CSK had purchased Ngidi at his base price of Rs 50 lakh last season and had to find someone at that amount or lower)".

All rounder Kuggeleijn made his T20 debut for New Zealand this year, having first played ODIs for the national side two years ago. "We were looking for an allrounder who has good pace and variations", Fleming informed. "He'll be joining us next week", Fleming added.

Having played two ODIs and four T20Is for New Zealand, Kuggeleijn's latest worldwide appearance came in the T20I series against India last month.

In his brief time on the global stage, Kuggeleijn has proven himself to be a powerful striker of the ball down the order and has bowled at brisk pace. He didn't have much to do with the bat, facing only 20 balls across six innings - four of which he remained not out in.

Laying emphasis on replacing Ngidi with an all-rounder, Fleming disclosed reasons behind calling in Kuggeleijn. "We think we've got enough cover, and players that are in form waiting for an opportunity".

"We value all the players in the squad", Fleming said. Kuggeleijn has got pace and the velocity, which is something different. The bounce is probably what interests us more.
