Deepak Chahar’s absence was noticed in the Chennai Super Kings camp during the last Indian Premier League season, as the MS Dhoni-led club finished second worst in the ten-team points table. CSK purchased the seamer in the big auction for 14 crore, but Chahar was forced to withdraw due to an injury.
With the T20 World Cup coming, Chahar has given Indian supporters a breath of relief, as he is anticipated to recuperate entirely in the next four to five weeks.
The 29-year-old was injured during the West Indies’ tour of India earlier this year. He is now undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, along with Washington Sundar and T Natarajan.
According to a PTI report, the seamer appeared in fine form during the training session, when he revealed that he is bowling four to five overs at a time without pain.
“As part of my rehabilitation regimen, I am currently bowling four to five overs in a row. My recuperation is progressing well, and I believe it will take another four to five weeks for me to be match ready “According to the article, the seamer said.
Chahar stated that he will not be match ready for the T20Is against England in July and will need to participate in a few club level matches to test his fitness.
“In terms of recovery, it is a step-by-step procedure. I don’t think I’ll be able to play in the England T20s. I’ll need to play several club level games to test my fitness once I’m match fit “Chahar said.
