He supposed to join the team for the second half of the season at first. According to the Times of India, the latest scans indicate that the right-arm pacer will be out for at least four months. This means he may also miss the T20 World Cup in 2022.
CSK may suffer as a result of Deepak Chahar’s absence
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old has emerged as an important member of the CSK team. The right-arm pacer isn’t the fastest bowler in the league. But his ability to swing the new ball makes him a dangerous weapon. The pacer has a sharp yorker and a well-disguised slower delivery to operate in the slog overs.
If that isn’t enough, the dasher is also a capable lower-order batsman with two ODI half-centuries to his name. CSK didn’t mind breaking the bank to re-sign him because of all of these factors. However, it will not pay dividends this season because the Ravindra Jadeja-led side will be forced to operate without him for the duration of the tournament.
The Indian team, on the other hand, is optimistic about Chahar’s recovery, as the fast-bowling all-rounder would be a valuable asset on Australian pitches.
