Deepak Chahar Ruled out of TATA IPL 2022: 

On Friday, Deepak Chahar the ace-bowler of the Chennai Super Kings who was awaited was ruled out of the tournament. The Chennai Super Kings had spent a lot on Deepak Chahar in the TATA IPL 2022 Auction. They had spent a jaw-dropping 15 Crores, and this made him the most expensive Indian bowler in the history of the IPL. The void of Deepak Chahar is very big and some of the players will have to step up to fill this gap. It is a back injury that has left the pacer from Rajasthan out of the league.  

The input that Deepak has to give to the team is unmatched. Deepak Chahar also has a lot to offer with the bat. Chahar gives 3 effective overs in the powerplay and one in the middle or at the death. The CSK management specifically planned their team around Chahar. Chahar has previously struggled with his hamstring muscles but it is a back injury that has left him out of contention.
