Deepak Chahar Set To Miss Majority Of IPL 2022 Season: Reports

MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings have faced a major setback ahead of the 2022 season, as their lead bowler Deepak Chahar is expected to miss a large part of the upcoming season due to injury. According to ESPNcricinfo, Deepak might be away from cricket for several weeks. It should be noted that IPL 2022 will run from March 26 till May 29.

Deepak had injured his right quadriceps while bowling his second over in the 3rd match of the recent India vs West Indies T20I series. Chahar was unable to even finish the over and had to leave the field. Later, the bowling all-rounder was ruled out of the Sri Lanka T20I series. The Chennai Super Kings are reportedly waiting for a final verdict from the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, where Deepak is currently rehabbing.

Earlier, Deepak was re-signed by CSK for a whopping INR 14 crores in the IPL 2022 mega-auctions. Deepak has been MS Dhoni’s go-to new ball bowler for a long time now, and his absence will definitely have a significant impact on CSK’s quest for the 5th IPL title.

CSK To Train In Surat to prepare For The Maharashtra Pitches

The Chennai Super Kings will train for 20 days at the Lalbhai Contractor Stadium in Surat ahead of the 2022 IPL season. The stadium owned by the Surat District Cricket Association (SDCA, has hosted several Ranji, Irani, Duleep Trophy matches in the past.

In a conversation with TOI, SDCA Cricket Secretary Nainesh Desai explained that the Super Kings chose Surat because the wickets on that ground have the same soil as Mumbai. A total of 55 out of 70 league matches in IPL 2022 will be played in Mumbai, and hence this decision of CSK can be a masterstroke.

CSK skipper MS Dhoni arrived in Surat on Wednesday. Overseas staff led by Head Coach Stephen Fleming, is expected to arrive around March 12th, according to CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan.
