CSK fans were hoping he would return to the squad soon and help them win matches in a tournament.
But while training and recovering at the NCA Deepak picked up another back injury thus ruling him out of the TATA IPL 2022. His injury has broken the heart of every CSK fan as he is one the team needs the most after a bad start.
Deepak Chahar was one of the highest-paid players during the IPL 2022 auction as CSK spent hefty INR 14 crores to bring him back to their squad. Every expert, fan felt it was an amount well spent as Chahar brings a lot with his world-class swing bowling and useful lower-order batting.

Who Might Be Chahar’s Replacement
With the experience of 93 IPL matches under his belt, pacer Ishant Sharma could be a very good replacement for Chahar. His age may be a concern but CSK is known to get the best out of the veteran players.
The pacer was part of Delhi Capitals last year and went unsold this year.
It is a massive blow to CSK and we hope Chahar recovers soon and entertain us with his swing bowling.
