Chennai Super Kings faced defeat against KKR
The player who returned from injury did well for CSK
New Delhi. The player Mahendra Singh Dhoni touches, he becomes gold. Despite landing with inexperienced bowlers in IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings are standing on the threshold of playoffs. The defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders in the last match has made Chennai’s path a bit difficult. But, Dhoni’s team has another chance. Chennai has to play its last league match of the season against Delhi Capitals. If CSK is successful in winning this match, then the playoff ticket will be confirmed. Even in the match against KKR, at one point of time, Chennai seems to have the upper hand. Dhoni’s most special bowler Deepak Chahar had given three shocks to KKR in the powerplay itself.
Deepak Chahar gave Chennai Super Kings a great start in the low-scoring match by removing Rahmanullah Gurbaz (1) in the first over, Venkatesh Iyer (9) in his second over and Jason Roy (12) in the third over. It is a different matter that the rest of the bowlers were not that effective and later Rinku Singh and captain Nitish Rana gave victory to Kolkata Knight Riders.
The bag was empty in the first 4 matches, now 7 wickets in 3 matches
Deepak Chahar is struggling with injury this season as well. He got injured only after playing 3 matches and then stayed out for 1 month. But, after the comeback, Chahar is bowling brilliantly. He also took 3 wickets for 27 runs against KKR. Deepak has taken 7 wickets in 7 matches so far. He has taken all these seven wickets in the last 3 matches only and CSK has won two of these matches. In one they defeated Mumbai Indians and in the other they defeated Delhi Capitals. That is why Chahar is one of Dhoni’s most trusted bowlers.

14 Crore Deepak criticized for his fitness
Deepak was bought by Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2022 auction for 14 crores. But, did not play the entire season due to injury. Despite this, he was retained by CSK for IPL 2023. Deepak landed in the initial matches and then got injured. After this, he also had to be trolled on social media. The fans also criticized the management of CSK that they have created an army of injured players and the players who were bought at a hefty price are seen sitting on the bench. But, Dhoni kept faith in Chahar and since his return, he has been wreaking havoc with swing and proving his mettle on lifeless wickets.

50 wickets in the lowest innings in powerplay
Deepak is one of the highest wicket-taker in powerplay in IPL history. He has taken 50 wickets so far. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (59) has the most wickets in the powerplay. He has taken so many wickets in 154 innings. While Deepak has taken 50 wickets in just 70 innings. Suffice it to say how dangerous he is in the powerplay and why Dhoni is so dependable?
