According to the latest updates, Deepak Chahar is likely to miss most of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 due to fitness concerns. In the recently concluded 15th edition of the IPL  mega auction, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) acquired the bowling all-rounder back to home, for a whopping INR 14 crore. Chahar also looked eager to restore the authorities’ as well as support staff’s belief. Here is Why Chahar To Miss Majority Of IPL 2022.

Meanwhile, it’s been disclosed that the pace bowler would miss a significant portion of the T20 event, maybe not the entire season. According to sources, Chahar hurt his quadriceps during the 3rd T20I versus the West Indies the previous month. The ailment that forced him to skip the Sri Lanka T20Is would most likely take many weeks to recover. As a result, he could miss the majority IPL competition, which starts from March 26 to May 29.

Chahar’s absence will be a major set-back for Dhoni’s CSK

According to the insider, CSK management is awaiting for final review from the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, wherein Chahar is now receiving treatment. This is undoubtedly a significant setback for the MS Dhoni-led side, who did everything possible to bring the 29-year-old onto the platform. CSK surpassed the Delhi Capitals (DC), Rajasthan Royals (RR), and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) for Chahar’s services.

Importantly, it’s the 1st time during the auction session that the Chennai franchise spent more than Rs 10 crore on a player. This demonstrates the pacer’s importance to the team. As a result, the franchise would like that the pacers appear in the majority of the games. Admittedly, Chahar’s unavailability might lead to problems for the side because he is a true wicket-taker with the ball in hand.

In recent outings, the promising talented player has made his bat talk. Chahar, who has also been partnered with CSK since the 2018 edition, does have 58 scalps in as many matches for the team.
