Deepak Chahar’s sister Malti came forward and lambasted the critics after her brother injured himself during Chennai Super Kings’ recent game against Punjab Kings. Both sides locked horns in the 49th game of the tournament at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday, May 1. 

In the first over of the second innings, Chahar began his spell with a dot ball before Prabhsimran Singh smashed him for a boundary. However, the third ball of the over saw the pacer limping, and after a chat with skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad, Chahar walked off the pitch. Shardul Thakur bowled the remaining four balls of Chahar’s over. 

After the 31-year-old’s injury, many experts criticised his fitness. However, his sister, Malti, took to X (formerly known as Twitter) and came to her brother’s defence, opining that everyone should be supportive of him instead of being insensitive.

“Stop being so insensitive guys! Nobody is enjoying these injuries! He is trying his best and he will comeback stronger!” Malti Chahar tweeted. 

PBKS register fifth consecutive win against CSK

Speaking of the game, the clash began with Chennai Super Kings coming in to bat first. The five-time champions got off to a good start as openers Ajinkya Rahane and Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 29 and 62 runs, respectively. However, despite a good start, the rest of the batters could not amount to much. 

Shivam Dube was sent packing for a duck, with Ravindra Jadeja adding just two runs on the board. Sameer Rizvi scored 21 runs with Moeen Ali scoring 15 as Chennai Super Kings posted a total of 162 runs in the first innings. 

As for Punjab Kings, Harpreet Brar and Rahul Chahar were the highest wicket takers, with two wickets to their names. Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh struck once as well. 

Aiming to chase down the total, Jonny Bairstow opened with a score of 46 runs in 30 deliveries. Rilee Rossouw added 43 runs on the board, with Shashank Singh and Sam Curran staying unbeaten on scores of 25 and 26 runs, respectively, as PBKS won the game by seven wickets.
