Last month, during India’s T20I series against the West Indies, the Indian seamer, Deepak Chahar had suffered from a Quadricep tear, an injury that often requires surgery, and takes 2-3 months for recovery. Chahar is currently at the NCA in Bangalore for an eight-week rehabilitation program, but according to the recent reports of the Times of India, he will not be required to undergo surgery.

In fact, based on the report, Deepak Chahar will be able to play for Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the franchise which brought him back for INR 14 crore in IPL 2022 auctions, from the middle of April. CSK also has requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to release Chahar from NCA in the next couple of weeks and allow him to undergo his rehabilitation under their physios at Surat.

CSK has already set up a preparatory camp for the upcoming 15th edition of the IPL. The franchise wants Chahar to join them there so that they can continuously monitor the status of his recovery.

After the MRI scans, it was initially suggested that Deepak Chahar will be required to undergo surgery. But with the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year in mind, he did not want to go have surgery. Had he undergone the operation, he would have been out for a longer time and his hopes of playing the T20 World Cup would have been bleak.
