Defending champions Chennai Super Kings have had a horror start to their IPL 2022 campaign after losing four games in a row. Ravindra Jadeja-led CSK are getting ready to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their fifth game of the season in Mumbai on Tuesday (April 12), but ahead of the match they have received some bad news regarding their star all-rounder Deepak Chahar.
The CSK pacer, who is yet to play his first match of IPL 2022, has been recovering from a quadriceps injury at the NCA in Bengaluru. It has now emerged that Chahar has suffered a second injury at the NCA – a recurrence of old back injury.
The back trouble for Deepak Chahar could potentially spell the end of his hopes to take some part in the IPL 2022.
“We are not aware of this back injury. He has been working very hard to get back to shape and play again for us. But for now, he remains unavailable”, a source close to CSK management was quoted as saying by Insidesport.in website.
