In a statement released by the team, they assured fans that the medical staff is closely monitoring both players and providing necessary support for their recovery.

Stokes Misses Mumbai Match Due to Minor Toe Injury

Chahar Suffers Hamstring Injury in First Over Against Mumbai

Deepak Chahar, on the other hand, suffered a hamstring injury in the first over of the match against Mumbai. The team physio had to aid him after he bowled the fifth delivery of the over. Although he completed the over, he had to walk off the field after that.

Chahar to Undergo Scans to Assess Hamstring Injury Extent

Upon the team’s return to Chennai, Chennai Super Kings announced that scans will be conducted on Chahar’s hamstring injury to assess its severity. In February 2022, Chahar suffered a similar hamstring injury that resulted in a back injury during his rehabilitation period. As a result, he had to miss the entire IPL season and was sidelined for six months due to the injury.

Medical Staff Closely Monitoring Both Players

The CSK medical staff is closely monitoring the injuries of Ben Stokes and Deepak Chahar, providing all necessary support for their recovery. The team is hopeful that Stokes and Chahar will return to the field soon and contribute to their ongoing IPL campaign.

In conclusion, despite the injury setbacks, CSK remains focused on its goal of winning the IPL 2023 season, and the team and its fans are eagerly waiting for the return of both Stokes and Chahar to the field.
