Why is Deepak Chahar not playing CSK vs PBKS IPL 2023 match

The crucial news update coming from the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp is that their premier pacer Deepak Chahar is still not ready for selection in their 9th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Things did not panned out in an ideal manner for the Chennai Super Kings recently in the ongoing edition of the T20 competition as they suffered a poor 32-run defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals who also defeated CSK in the first game between these two teams. However, CSK still has as many as 5 wins from 8 matches this season.

Unfortunately, the Chennai Super Kings will once again be without their premier new ball fast bowler Deepak Chahar in the CSK playing 11 for the CSK vs PBKS match on Sunday. After missing the entire IPL 2022 season due to injury, the Indian pacer once again pulled off his hamstring during the match against Mumbai Indians and has been out of action in the last 5 games of IPL 2023 for the Chennai Super Kings. Although, the 30-year-old cricketer has started bowling in the nets, he is still recovering from the injury and is expected to make his return into the CSK playing XI during the first or second week of May. During the ongoing IPL 2023 season, Deepak Chahar’s bowling performance for CSK has been lacklustre. Despite participating in three matches, he failed to take any wickets, and his economy rate was over 10 runs per over.
