In the first ODI, Bangladesh won by 1 wicket.
Bangladesh is leading 1-0 in the 3-match ODI series against India.
Many players of the Indian cricket team have been injured.
New Delhi. India pacer Deepak Chahar’s struggle with fitness continued in the ongoing second ODI against Bangladesh. The fast bowler bowled only three overs and left the field with a hamstring injury. The persistent back problem of the CSK bowler is becoming a cause of concern for the team. And to make matters worse, the ongoing ODI series continues to wreak havoc on Indian players as Chahar was the third player to walk off the field. Rohit Sharma has left the ground with a thumb injury. Even before the start of the match, Kuldeep Sen was troubled by the stiffness of the back and did not become a part of the playing eleven. Rishabh Pant is also out of the ODI series due to back issues.
This was the second time in two series, when Deepak Chahar did not complete his quota of 10 overs. The fast bowler bowled fewer overs in the ODI series against New Zealand and complained of back pain. Now against Bangladesh, the 30-year-old complained of a hamstring strain after bowling just three overs. One of the members of the outgoing selection committee had told that Chahar is still not 100% recovered from the back injury.
One of the members of the outgoing selection committee told InsideSport, “He is getting there but is still not 100%. Deepak has got many injuries. So, they don’t have to hurry. He is with the team and will play when the team physio feels that he is 100 per cent fit. He will be an important player for India.
Please tell that since February 2022, Chahar has suffered many injuries. Chahar suffered his first injury of the year during the third T20 match of the India vs West Indies series. The quadriceps in his right leg were torn. Chahar suffered the injury just after he was bought by CSK for Rs 14 crore in the mega IPL auction. A few days before the IPL season, this bowler suffered a back injury. Ironically, he suffered a stress fracture from his injury from the Windies series at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.
On the eve of the first ODI between India and South Africa, Deepak Chahar suffered a fresh injury when he injured his ankle during practice in Lucknow. After this Chahar did not appear in the game and it soon became clear that he would not appear in the rest of the series as well. It was also announced that Chahar would not fly to Australia for the next five days due to his ankle injury, which made him ineligible for T20 World Cup selection.
