Deepak Chahar will be available for the 2022 season of the Indian Premier League, which is a welcome development for Chennai Super Kings (IPL). According to the most recent developments, the right-arm pacer will not require surgery, as was first anticipated, and will be ready to play by the middle of April. He is currently receiving rehabilitation at Bangalore’s National Cricket Academy.
For the uninitiated, Chahar tore his quadriceps during the T20I series against the West Indies, forcing him to miss the following series against Sri Lanka. According to original reports, the bowling all-rounder was expected to miss the majority of the season, if not all of it, due to surgery. However, because surgery is in the works, Chahar should be ready for selection starting in mid-April.
Deepak Chahar will be monitored by CSK
Meanwhile, the Times of India has published a comprehensive report on the subject. CSK also wants Chahar to attend their camp in Surat in the coming weeks, according to reports. The team reportedly wants to keep an eye on the pacer’s conditioning and get him ready as soon as feasible. Chahar has been a key member of CSK since the start of the 2018 season.
With the new ball, he may cause damage while also bowling useful death overs. In as many outings for the Yellow Army, he has taken 58 wickets. Not to mention, the 30-year-old has shown to be a useful batter towards the bottom of the order. Due to all of these circumstances, CSK set aside INR 14 crore in the IPL 2022 mega auction to reclaim the pacer’s services.
This was the first time CSK paid more than ten crore for a player in a bidding event. CSK, on the other hand, will enter the competition as reigning champions after winning the title four times. On the paper, the side appears to be well-settled, with their core intact. As a result, MS Dhoni’s team are expected to deliver once more.
