Chennai Super Kings player Moeen Ali will miss the opening match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday (March 26).

He was retained by CSK for Rs 8 crore. He did not join the team

Currently, he is at his home in Birmingham as he hasn't got a visa to travel to India.

He still has not got his visa. We have also got in touch with BCCI. BCCI is also working on it, said CEO Kasi Viswanathan

We are expecting that it will be done in a day or two. I cannot say that it will be done today. But we are expecting that it can be cleared today,

How many matches he will miss depends on when he comes in. Right now, he will miss the first game.
