Star Indian pacer Deepak Chahar has been ruled out of the T20I series that India will kick off against Sri Lanka on February 24. India is all set to play a three-match T20I series against Lanka followed by two Tests wherein the opening T20I is all set to take place in Lucknow. It has been reported that Chahar suffered a grade two tear during the final T20I against West Indies.
It has to be noted that the Agra cricketer played all the three T20Is against West Indies where his performances were not very impressive barring the final game. As per the reports by Sports Today, Chahar will mark his entry back into the action during IPL 2022, playing for Chennai Super Kings.
CSK retains Deepak Chahar for a whopping INR 14 Crore
Talking about his IPL developments, it is known to all that the UP cricketer was retained by his yellow franchise for a whopping INR 14 Crore during the mega auction. He stands to be the most expensive buy by CSK and the second highest in the mega auction after Ishan Kishan.
Chahar is known well for his expertise with the new ball and performed the same way for his IPL franchise in the last few years. He has been MS Dhoni’s go-to-man with the new ball too and it remains to be seen if he will be able to justify his price tag this time in IPL 2022.
“I wanted to play for CSK because I haven’t imagined myself playing in another colour than yellow. At one point, I thought it (the bid price) was too much. As a CSK player, I also want to build a good team. So, after they spent 13 crore, I actually wanted the bidding to stop so I can go to CSK quickly, and then we can buy some other players (with the money saved),” said Chahar earlier.
