The defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is set to be dealt with a big blow as Deepak Chahar is doubtful for the remainder of the matches in the ongoing IPL season.

Chahar seemingly suffered hamstring injury in the CSK's last match against Punjab Kings at the Chepual Stadium in Chennai on April 30. The 31-year-old walked off the field after delivering two balls to Prabhsimran Singh. Deepak Chahar had a brief chat with CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad while walking back to the dressing room, where physiotherapist was waiting for him.

As per the report by Cricbuzz, Deepak Chahar's injury doesn't look but CSK CEO Kasi Viswanath hasn't ruled him out of the tournament.

"Deepak injury is not looking good. I will not say he is ruled out of the season but doubtful." CSK CEO said.

Deepak Chahar didn't travel with the Chennai Super Kings squad to Himachal Pradesh, where the next clash against Punjab Kings will take place. Chahar stayed back in Chennai to assess the seriousness of the injury and CSK management is awaiting a report from the medical team.

Deepak Chahar was on the sidelines for few matches due to niggle before returning to action for the clash against Punjab Kings.

Mayank Yadav likely to be ruled out of IPL 2024

Apart from Deepak Chahar, Lucknow Super Giants pacer Mayank Yadav is unlikely to play the remaining matches of the IPL 2024 due to injury. Yadav suffered a side strain and bowled only 3.1 overs before he was walked back to the pavilion during the clash against Mumbai Indians.

The 21-year-old missed a few games due to a side strain. However, it resurfaced during the match against MI in Lucknow. Mayank Yadav has been the talk of the town in the ongoing IPL season due to his express pace. In the match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru, the Delhi-born cricketer delivered at a speed of 156.7 mph.

It has been reported that Mayank Yadav is likely to be groomed for the Australia tour and is seen as a potential asset for the Indian bowling line-up in the future.
