Abu Dhabi: Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is set to miss the rest of ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League due to a shoulder injury, dealing a blow to the two-time champions as the West Indian has been integral part of the side.

Ahead of today`s match against Delhi Daredevils, CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said that Bravo could miss "4 to 5 weeks" of IPL-7 after a bad fall in the last game.

"Sad that he won`t be part of the dressing room, hope he recovers soon," Dhoni said. Bravo had suffered the injury while fielding during Kings XI Punjab`s innings last Friday. Bravo took a tumble while fielding at point region in the 11th over to get himself injured.

He unsuccessfully tried to stop a switch hit by Glenn Maxwell off Ravichandran Ashwin in the last delivery of the 11th over with a diving effort and injured his shoulder in the process.
The West Indian left the field and was reportedly taken to a local hospital to ascertain the seriousness of his injury.
