IPL 2022 – 3 CRUCIAL Indian Cricketers who are currently injured

The present season of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 has seen several ups and downs. A few franchisees are concerned about the fitness of their important players on the roster, ranging from the top two teams delivering subpar performances to star players not being able to play to their full capacity.

Injuries frequently have a large impact on a team’s tournament fate. The 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is halfway through, and a few franchises are concerned about the health of their important players.

While injuries are unavoidable in sports, teams attempt to provide their players with the best medical treatment possible in order to keep them available for the majority of the competition. However, because of fitness/injury concerns, some IPL superstar players have yet to be cleared for the competition. In this article, we are going to talk about 3 CRUCIAL Indian Cricketers who are currently injured.

Number 1. Suryakumar Yadav

The Mumbai Indians’ great middle-order batsman has been officially ruled out of the rest of the IPL 2022 due to a muscle issue in his left forearm. SKY was injured while playing for the Mumbai Indians against the Gujarat Titans on May 6, when he hit an 11-ball 13 to assist his team win by five runs. Suryakumar was dropped from the roster after consultations with the BCCI’s fitness team.

Suryakumar has been sidelined due to injury for the second time in recent months. After suffering a hairline fracture on his thumb in the final match of the T20I series against West Indies on February 22, he spent three weeks recovering at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru before the start of the IPL. As a result, he missed the first week of the tournament and was finally named to Mumbai’s XI for their third match of the season, against Knight Riders, on April 6.

In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, the 31-year-old was only able to play in eight matches. In eight games with the Mumbai Indians, he scored 303 runs at an impressive average of 43.29, including three half-centuries. However, he will no longer be available for the remaining TATA IPL 2022 matches.

Chahar, the IPL 2022 auction’s second most expensive purchase, has suffered the most major injury heading into the new season. It was previously assumed that the pacer will miss the entire 2015 season. Deepak’s decision not to have surgery for his right quadriceps injury, on the other hand, had given him hope of returning in April. However, due to a back ailment, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) star pacer was officially ruled out of the ongoing IPL 2022 season.

Deepak Chahar, a bowling all-rounder, injured his quadriceps in the third T20I against the West Indies in February. Chahar was later ruled out of the first half of the season after being purchased back for a whopping INR 14 crore in the IPL Mega Auction that same month.

Chahar, who was receiving rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, suffered a new injury and will miss the rest of the season. CSK struggled to win games in his absence, initially losing four in a row for the first time in IPL history.

Since his fairy-tale tour of Australia, Natarajan has spent more time on the bench than on the pitch. His knee injury flared up during the first leg of the IPL 2021, ending his career. Then, just as he was set to return to action for the UAE leg, he tested positive for Covid-19.

Last year, Natarajan was a member of the Tamil Nadu side that successfully defended the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 title. However, his body was unable to deal with the match’s intensity due to knee difficulties and Covid-19. As a result, he was unable to participate in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in December.

Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer has regained some confidence in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 after overcoming injury setbacks. Natarajan is the season’s fifth-highest wicket-taker, with 17 from nine matches. Gavaskar lauded the left-arm pacer for his dedication. Natarajan, he stated, is eager to rejoin the Indian cricket team. Natarajan shined for SRH in their season-opening triumph over Royal Challengers Bangalore, prompting his comments. However, Natrajan’s knee ailment has reappeared, forcing him to miss the last two games for SRH.
