Deepak Chahar to return to India team following injury recovery

Deepak Chahar is anticipated to play in the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2022. Chahar, who has previously had to recuperate from an injury, is expected to recover shortly and make the cut for the tournament.

Chahar announced to his fans on social media that he has released a video of himself bowling in a match, something he hasn't done in five months. He emphasized his joy, saying that the sensation of bowling is as pleasant as the first time he made a debut.

Amit Mishra, a renowned spinner, recently shared a training session with Chahar on his Twitter account, demonstrating how quickly Chahar is recovering as he shows the world his fitness and prepares for another match.

“Good news for CSK’ fans. He is fit and very soon will be ready for team India and CSK. Wishing you all the very best,” Mishra remarked on Twitter.

In an interview, Chahar also indicated that he intends to join the Indian team for the Zimbabwe and Asian Cup 2022, citing his better physical condition.

"I’m quite pleased with my recovery, and I believe I’ll be able to make the squad for the Zimbabwe tour and then the Asia Cup," he said. "I’ve also been bowling in the emerging team camp here (NCA) and do feel a lot better as I’m going on to bowl. Fitness-wise, I’m in a much better place."

This is crucial news for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), as the accident has harmed the team's balance, as seen by four losses in their last four games.

Even though players like Mukesh Choudhary, Tushar Deshpande, Adam Milne, and Chris Jordan are on the roster, none of them has been able to provide the team with the necessary control as Chahar did in the match's opening moments.

Chahar's injury

Previously, it was reported that Chahar had a hamstring injury while playing for the West Indies in a Men in a Blue series match in February, rendering him unfit and forcing him to undergo rehabilitation.

It wasn't his first injury, since he damaged his back in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) during his recovery in Bengaluru. Chahar had played 58 IPL matches for CSK between 2018 and 2021, taking 58 wickets at an economy rate of 7.70. The injury occurred during rehabilitation after Chahar was transported to the place for one month.

Several anticipated that Chahar's participation in the IPL would not be jeopardized by this new injury since many parties, including the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Indian national team, would require his involvement in the T20 World Cup, which begins in October.

The West Indies incident occurred after Chahar was hit on the right hand while attempting to save the ball from a hard hit by the opposition's skipper, Kieron Pollard. Chahar then completed the match with a score of 3-0-28-1 at that moment.

It is unfortunate for both him and the team that he has been ruled out of any tournament, especially because the CSK had inked a big deal with Chahar for Rs 14 crore in the IPL.
