Malti Chahar had commented with an emotional message for her brother Deepak Chahar after the latter got ruled out of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) spent as much as INR 14 crore to buy the services of Deepak Chahar during the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
However, just before IPL 2022, Deepak Chahar had sustained an injury during the T20I series between India and West Indies. It did not allow him to play in the subsequent T20I series against Sri Lanka and his participation was already in jeopardy.
Deepak Chahar went to the National Cricket Academy to recover from his quadriceps injury. However, in the process, he suffered a back injury, and because of that now he has been ruled out of competitive cricket for four months. The IPL organizers confirmed yesterday that Chahar will not play for CSK in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League.
In an official press release regarding the same, IPL stated, “Chennai Super Kings bowler Deepak Chahar has been ruled out of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 owing to a back injury.”
Soon after the news was out, Deepak Chahar posted a lengthy note on Instagram to inform the fans that he will come back better and stronger than before. His sister Malti Chahar left the following comment under that post: “We all are missing you in this IPL. (red heart emoji). Suresh Raina also posted a comment under the message from Chahar: “Get well soon brother!”
With Deepak Chahar officially ruled out of IPL 2022, it will be interesting to see if the CSK decides to rope in a replacement for him. Experienced fast bowlers like Dhawal Kulkarni, Ishant Sharma, and Mohit Sharma went unsold at the mega auction. They could replace Chahar this season at CSK.
