TOU

India international and Chennai Super Kings pacer Deepak Chahar could be out for almost four months as per the results of his latest scans, reports The Times of India. Chahar, who was recovering from a quadriceps tear at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, suffered a fresh back injury this time while bowling in the nets. The pacer was earlier ruled out of IPL 2022 but the latest development confirms that Chahar may well miss the T20 World Cup to be held in October later this year.

CSK paid Rs 14 crore to buy Chahar in the IPL mega auction in February, but the bowler suffered a quadricep tear on national duty. However, the 29-year-old had shown rapid improvement at the NCA, raising hopes of the four-time champion to regain his prized possession.

Chahar has been one of the top performers for the franchise, having established a reputation for taking wickets in the powerplay overs – an area where CSK have found little in this season. The Ravindra Jadeja-led side has tried different pacers with the new ball including the uncapped pair of Adam Milne, Chris Jordan, Mukesh Choudhary and Tushar Deshpande, with none making a significant impact. With four losses in five matches, CSK are in the bottom half of the IPL 2022 points table. He won his last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In Chahar’s absence, CSK struggled to pick up early wickets and their lack of depth in the bowling department has been exploited by the teams.

Chahar, who made his IPL debut in 2016, was one of CSK’s favorite bowlers for the last two seasons. Overall, in 63 matches, he has taken 59 wickets at an average of 29.19. Chahar’s best season so far was the 2019 season where he took 22 wickets at 21.90. He took 12-12 and 14 wickets in 202 and 2021. The Agra-born medium-pacer, who was part of the Rajasthan Royals team in 2012, donned the RPS jersey for two seasons and was bought by Chennai Super Kings in 2018. After the 2018 season, he was later rewarded. India call-up in limited overs cricket.

Playing for India, Chahar has taken 10 wickets in seven ODIs while he has played in 20 T20Is, returning 26 wickets at 22.26, with his best bowling figures of 6/7 against Bangladesh in 2019.
