IPL 2023: CSK’s Deepak Chahar to undergo scans, Ben Stokes suffers toe injury | Cricket News – Times of India

Must read

NEW DELHI: The injury issues grappled Chennai Super Kings camp with seamer Deepak Chahar and star all-rounder Ben Stokes‘ availability in the coming matches looks uncertain.
Chahar, who suffered hamstring injury during the IPL 2023 match against Mumbai Indians on Saturday, will undergo scans to ascertain the extent of the injury.
The 30-year-old right-arm seamer could bowl only one over against MI at the Wankhede Stadium and off the field after receiving initial treatment.
Chahar has had a long injury layoff and returned to top-flight action only in this IPL, struggling in the first two games before suffering a fresh hamstring injury on his left leg.
“Chahar will undergo scans to identify the extent of the injury once the team returns to Chennai,” said CSK in a statement on Sunday.

Stokes, who featured in the first two games for CSK but missed the clash against Mumbai Indians on Saturday, is said to have injured his toe, at a time when he is also dealing with a troubled left knee which has prevented him from bowling full tilt in this IPL.
The English all-rounder, on whom CSK spent Rs 16.5 crore in the auction in December, has so far bowled only one over — against Lucknow Super Giants — and looked far from his best.
“Chennai Super Kings cricketer Ben Stokes is nursing a minor toe injury which forced him out of the match against Mumbai Indians. Stokes played Chennai Super Kings’ first two matches of IPL 2023 before injuring his toe during training ahead of the third game, which the Super Kings won by seven wickets,” the release said.
The franchise added, “The Chennai Super Kings medical staff are closely monitoring both the players and will provide all support necessary for their recovery.”
