14 crore CSK all-rounder Deepak Chahar ruled out of Ipl 15

14 crore CSK all-rounder Deepak Chahar ruled out of Ipl 15

A back injury to CSK all-rounder Deepak Chahar has all but put paid to the fast-bowling all-rounder's hopes of playing in the IPL-15, adding to the grief of Chennai Super Kings' faltering campaign. While entering the tournament without Chahar, their strike bowler and defending champions have lost all their four matches in the 10-team competition and placed at the bottom of the points table.

While CSK always claimed that their Rs 14 crore buying would be fit around the second week of April, the solemnity of the tear was such that there was "no chance of his availability" in the tournament. The CSK and Indian bowler suffered a back injury during his rehab at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Deepak Chahar has been at the NCA for over a month, recovering from a quadricep tear injury he picked during India's T20I series against West Indies in February. At first, it was believed that Deepak Chahar would miss a significant part of the IPL, but his quick recovery kept CSK optimistic about a late April return. In February, the bowling all-rounder had suffered a quadriceps injury during the third T20I against West Indies, walking off the field after failing to complete his bowling spell. The 29-year-old pace bowler, who was bought for Rs 14 crore in the mega auction, went on to miss the next series against Sri Lanka.

Deepak Chahar, adept at playing the big shots, played a vital role in the team's success last year.

With Deepak Chahar ruled out of IPL 15, fans on Twitter got busy brainstorming who could be one of them who could replace Deepak Chahar. So they came up with the name: Ishant Sharma.

With an experience of around 93 IPL matches under his belt, pacer Ishant Sharma could be an excellent replacement for Chahar. While at 33, Ishant'a age may concern the franchise, CSK is known for getting the best out of veteran players. Ishant's equation of playing under skipper MS Dhoni may also make his case strong. Last season, the lanky pacer was part of the Delhi Capitals; however, he was left unsold in the mega auction for IPL 15.
