More trouble For India As The Star All-rounder Set To Miss The Remaining 2 ODIs Against SA

Due to a twisted ankle, pacer Deepak Chahar is allegedly out of India’s current three-ODI series against South Africa. According to reports, the injury is “not very serious,” and recovery may only require a few days of relaxation.

Before the opening game on Thursday, October 6, in Lucknow, Chahar was hurt. The hosts ultimately lost by nine runs. He was not included in India’s three-pronged pace attack, which also included two spinners and included Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, and Avesh Khan. According to sources, “Deepak has sustained a twisted ankle but it’s not too serious. However, a few days of rest might be advisable.”
The problem has now made India’s World T20 campaign more challenging. Jasprit Bumrah, a master pacer, has already been eliminated from the competition. Chahar is available for the major competition in Australia, but India will want a different backup option if the pacer’s injury problem continues.
The source also told, “So it will be team management’s call if they would like to risk Deepak as he is on the T20 World Cup standby list. In any case, if there is a requirement there, it would be a priority.”

14 players from the official World Cup squad arrived in Australia on Friday, October 7. The replacement for Bumrah has not yet been confirmed.
Given that Shami recovered from COVID-19 in time, the senior pacer is the front-runner to replace Bumrah in India’s T20 World Cup squad.
However, Delhi Capitals (DC) left-arm seamer Chetan Sakariya and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) rising IPL 2022 star Mukesh Chaudhari have both been added as net bowlers to the World Cup roster and may be upgraded if necessary.
