In the next 48 hours, the Chennai Super Kings will face a critical test. The MS Dhoni-led team expects the National Cricket Academy’s report on Deepak Chahar’s injury. NCA should reveal the ultimate status of Chahar’s injury in a day or two, according to CSK’s CEO. Chahar’s services cost the four-time IPL champions a lot of money, and they spent INR 14 crores for the player in the IPL 2022 auction. Chahar, who was slated to start for the Dhoni-led team in their title-defending season, was injured only days before the season began. However, one week after the auction, the Agra-born bowler tore his right quadriceps in a T20I match against the West Indies. Deepak Chahar is doubtful for the Sri Lanka series due to a hamstring ailment.

CSK Is Awaiting the NCA Report:-

Last month, Deepak Chahar got injured in a T20I match against the West Indies. He is now having treatment at Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy (NCA). Chahar’s injury is significant, and he is expected to miss the entire IPL season.
CSK is currently awaiting the NCA’s detailed injury status report. In an interview, Kasi Viswanathan, the CEO of CSK, stated that the franchise is awaiting the news, and Kasi anticipates receiving the information within the next 48 hours.
“We have not heard anything from the BCCI or the NCA regarding Deepak Deepak Chahar’s injury.” We are not considering a successor at this time. “We could see MS Dhoni giving confidence to the younger kids, the uncapped ones, whether Tushar Deshpande, Simarjeet Singh, bowls for Delhi in the powerplay [or] Mukesh Choudhary – he’s a left-arm who bowls at fair speeds… “These players would need a little bit of pace on the Mumbai wickets so they can bowl,” Jaffer said ESPNcricinfo.
To make matters worse for Dhoni’s team, Ruturaj Gaikwad, the opening batsman, is unlikely to play in the IPL. Gaikwad is rehabilitating from a hand injury he sustained during the T20I series with Sri Lanka. Gaikwad and Chahar are both at NCA’s rehabilitation programme.
At Wankhede Stadium on March 26, Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will play Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the inaugural match of the IPL 2022.
