IPL 2022: 5 key Indian players who are injured
Injuries are unavoidable in sports hence IPL teams strive to provide the finest medical care to their players
The 15th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 has seen many ups and downs in the ongoing season. From the top two teams delivering sub-par performances to star players not being able to play to their full potential, a few franchises are concerned about the fitness of their key players in the squad.
Injuries frequently have a significant effect on a team’s tournament fate. The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is halfway through the season, and a few franchises are concerned about their key players’ condition.
While injuries are unavoidable in sports, teams strive to provide the finest medical care to their players to keep them available for most of the competition. However, due to fitness/injury concerns, some superstar players in the IPL are yet to be given the green light for the competition.
Here are 5 key Indian Players who are injured in IPL 2022:
1. Deepak Chahar
Chahar, who was the second most expensive purchase in the IPL 2022 auction, had suffered the most significant injury coming into the 2022 season. It was previously thought that the pacer would be missing the entire season 15. But Deepak’s choice not to have surgery for his right quadriceps injury had given him hope of returning in April. However, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) star pacer was officially ruled out of the ongoing season of IPL 2022 due to a back injury.
In February, the bowling all-rounder, Deepak Chahar injured his quadriceps in the third T20I against the West Indies. Chahar was subsequently ruled out of the first half of the season after being bought back for a massive INR 14 crore at the IPL Mega Auction that same month.
However, Chahar, who was undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, sustained a new injury, ruling him out for the remainder of the season. In his absence, CSK struggled to win games, initially losing four in a row for the first time in the IPL.
