RCB vs CSK: Why is Deepak Chahar Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

During CSK’s match against Mumbai Indians on April 8, the right-arm pacer, Deepak Chahar, had to leave the field due to a leg issue, and a substitute fielder took his place. Chahar appeared to experience an injury or discomfort while bowling the fifth ball of the first over. After calling for the physiotherapist, Chahar received treatment, completed the over, and then left the field, indicating that he may not have been able to continue playing due to the injury. It is unclear what type of injury Chahar sustained, but it could have been a strain, sprain, or some other condition that required immediate attention. Here’s what MS Dhoni said at the toss,

“The toss does matter because this is a venue where it is difficult to contain batters in the second innings. And not to forget dew. I think what’s important is not looking ahead, maybe 180-200 is a par score but we need to keep re-evaluating every 3-4 overs on where we stand and what would be a good total to get to. That is a better way to approach, rather than keeping a total in mind. One change – Magala is injured and Pathirana comes in. The good think is all the players who have come in to replace guys have performed well. But these injuries haven’t been ideal, but that’s what happens because the IPL comes at the end of the cricket season.”

Deepak Chahar IPL 2023 Salary

The Agra-born medium pacer Deepak Chahar was brought back into the ranks of Chennai Super Kings in 2018 and was bought at the 2022 IPL auctions for INR 14 crore. Chahar’s ability to swing the new ball both ways with control has made him a more lethal bowler at the top, and his rise through the ranks has been impressive. Despite not featuring in a single game for CSK in 2022 due to injury, the team management showed their faith on the seamer and retained him for the same amount ahead of the IPL 2023 auctions.
