New Delhi, April 9 (SocialNews.XYZ) Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have signed Australia fast bowler Jason Behrendorff as replacement for compatriot Josh Hazlewood. Hazlewoodhad earlier pulled out of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) to get ready for Australia's upcoming international calendar.

Hazlewood said that he wanted to take a break from cricket after being in bio-secure bubbles for a long period of time.

"It's been a long 10 months in bubbles and quarantine at different times, so I decided to have a rest from cricket and spend some time at home and in Australia in the next two months," Hazlewood told

He had not been a first choice player for CSK last season, which was his debut in the IPL. Hazlewood played in three matches and took one wicket.

CSK commenced their campaign with a match against Delhi Capitals on Saturday at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
