IPL 2022 CSK Star bowler Deepak Chahar ruled out from cricket for 3 months due to injury | IPL: Big setback to Team India in the midst of league, star player away from cricket for many months


IPL 2022: India and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fast bowler Deepak Chahar, who has been out of IPL season 15, is likely to be out of the field for at least the next three months. The 29-year-old suffered an injury during India’s T20I series against West Indies in February and was at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for his recovery.

Chahar was away from cricket for months

A preliminary assessment by the NCA physio had predicted that Chahar would miss a major part of the ongoing IPL season as CSK were expected to return towards the end of April with his quick recovery. However, the fast bowler suffered a back injury and was ruled out of IPL 2022 on Friday. According to a report in Cricbuzz, CSK and BCCI have revealed that Chahar is out of the field for 12 weeks and it will be a great progress if he actually makes it to the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October-November. .

It will take time to recover from injury

The report further states that the NCA physio has written a letter to the BCCI and CSK management, in which they have mentioned that it will take a long time for Chahar’s back injury to heal. Actually, this Rajasthan cricketer will have to rest for 6 weeks before resuming his recovery. Chahar was an integral part of CSK’s fourth championship win in IPL 2021, taking 14 wickets in 15 matches at an economy of 8.35. He was a successful bowler in the powerplay for the team. The franchise had to spend Rs 14 crore to select him in the mega auction before this season.

Impact on CSK

In the absence of Deepak Chahar, the defending champions have won only one match out of five in the current season. However, the Chennai team management has made it clear that it has not sought any other player in place of Chahar. CSK CEO Viswanathan said, “We have left it to the team management and they are yet to come back to us. We haven’t found an Indian bowler of Deepak’s ability. Meanwhile, a BCCI official has said that Chahar will not miss any IPL earnings even though he will not play a single match this season.
