The franchise were hoping for the 27-year-old to get fit in time to be available for the late stage of the league but his failure to regain full fitness brought his campaign to an early end. <p></p> <p></p>"While the team were hopeful that Chakravarthy would return for the final few games of the campaign, his recovery however hasn't been sufficient. The 27-year-old will return home as a result. KXIP wishes him a speedy recovery and the very best for the rest of the year," KXIP said in a media release on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu spinner Chakravarthy came into the IPL with much hype surrounding his mystery and bagful of variations (seven to be precise) through which he made a name for himself in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. The reputation he had built saw KXIP fork out a whopping INR 8.4 crore to secure his services at the IPL auction in December last year. <p></p> <p></p>KXIP are currently at the seventh spot in the IPL points table and need to at both their remaining matches, improve their net run-rate and see a couple of results go their way to make the playoffs.
