Deepak Chahar likely to be sidelined for three months
Deepak Chahar’s injury woes may have just gotten worse. He has not only been ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, but he will also be out of action in near future after that. His return to action is not likely at least for the next three months.
Sources at the Chennai Super Kings and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have revealed to Cricbuzz that the 29-year-old pacer is out for 12 weeks and it will be quite a progress if he actually makes it to the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia in October-November. His last competitive game was on February 20 this year.
According to a letter written to the BCCI and the CSK managements by the physios of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, where the player was undergoing rehab, Chahar has an L5 injury in his back and it will take a lot of time for recovery. In fact, the Rajasthan cricketer will have to rest for six weeks before restarting his rehab.
We were not good enough, the points table isn’t lying – Bumrah
Even by their own standards of notoriously poor starts, this was a record – they have dubiously surpassed the sequence of five consecutive defeats first up (in 2014), by going one more this year — well, more precisely going one worse — with six uninterrupted defeats. The commentators have been dwelling on the point that the five-time champions are in a rut. A more appropriate description would, perhaps, have been Mumbai Indians are in a new, unprecedented rut.
Delhi Daredevils in 2013 and Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2019 have had similar horror sequences but a 0-6 for Mumbai Indians is a different dynamic in the IPL. Not only are Mumbai Indians the most successful side in the league, but they are also the most high-profile franchise in the championship.
“Life has not ended, the sun is going to rise again. This is only a game of cricket, someone has to win and someone has to lose. We have not lost everything in life, just lost a cricket game. That’s the spirit that is there in our team,” Jasprit Bumrah said, looking at the existential side of the team’s situation.”Nobody is disappointed as we are. Nobody from outside can see the hard work we put in. There is luck here and there. It is the way it is, we are not shying away. We were not good enough and the table (points table) is not lying. In the rest of the games, we will give our best shot and try to come out better,” Bumrah said analyzing the situation.
Nothing seems to have gone right for the most successful franchise – the bowling has not clicked and the batting, with the indomitable Rohit Sharma at the top, has not exactly fired either. Pertinently enough, the Jofra Archer auction strategy may have come back to bite the franchise.
MI is hoping that the Bumrah-Archer combination will go on to become the most fearsome combination with the ball. But that will have to wait for 12 months. Having invested INR 8 crore on the English pacer, the returns have been barren this year. Archer, as announced earlier, will only be available from next year and the franchise has been deprived of a quality batsman or a bowler who could have come for that much investment.
“When you are chasing a total we need big partnerships, something we failed to do today,” said skipper Rohit Sharma after the defeat to Lucknow Super Giants at the Brabourne stadium. He had a template for the success in the opposition camp – one opener (KL Rahul) carried the bat and in the process scored a century too.
Rohit and Ishan Kishan have not had a similar run although the latter tried that in the first game against Delhi Capitals on March 27, when he had smashed 81 and batted nearly till the end. Since then, even Ishan, the costliest auction buy this year, failed to live up to his own lofty standards with the bat – he had one more half-century in the second game (vs Rajasthan Royals), but his form has dwindled since. Mumbai’s PowerPlay scores have been rather ordinary – 53/0 vs DC, 50/2 vs RR, 35/1 vs KKR, 49/0 vs RCB, 42/2 vs PBKS, and 47/2 vs LSG.
With the ball, the team has not had the best starts either and there has been a debate if Bumrah should open with the new ball. The team management has also tried different bowlers – Tymal Mills, the Twenty20 specialist from England, has played five games and his economy rate has been 11.17. Basil Thampi started the season well but has failed to retain his place. Daniel Sams has been a let-down, having gone for a 12.63 economy rate, managing only one wicket in three games. He was at the receiving end when Pat Cummins went on a rampage in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 6.
“I am ready to bowl in any situation,” said Bumrah, who is being introduced rather late into the attack. “I will do exactly what gives the best balance to the team. I am ready to take up the role that is in the team’s interest. We will analyse if I should start with the new ball. Personally, I am very happy with my own rhythm,” Bumrah said. He has not had the support that was there in the previous years, Trent Boult for instance.
India crush Scotland to keep semis hopes alive
India showed their class and might with an all-around effort as they pulverized Scotland by eight wickets in a Super 12 game on Friday, ensuring that they live to fight another day in the ICC T20 World Cup. The entire match lasted a mere 24.1 overs as India first skittled Scotland for 85 in 17.4 overs and then batted for another 6.3 overs to knock off the runs, taking the net run-rate to +1.619, which is now best among all six teams, even better than top-placed Pakistan (+1.065). To surpass Afghanistan’s current Net Run-Rate of +1.481, India needed to score the required runs in 7.1 overs and KL Rahul (50 off 19 balls) and Rohit Sharma (30 off 16 balls) added 70 in five overs to make sure that they achieve it in style.
It’s all over! SIX! India (89/2 in 6.3 overs) crush Scotland (85) by 8 wickets
Suryakumar Yadav finishes off the run chase in style, hitting a big six off Chris Greaves. India chased down the 86-run target in just 6.3 overs with 8 wickets in hand. India jumped to third in the Group 2 standings with the big win, ahead of Afghanistan via NRR.
OUT! Watt strikes to dismiss Rahul (50) | IND 82/2 in 6 overs, need 4 more to win
KL Rahul’s brilliant knock comes to an end. He hits it straight to Calum MacLeod while trying to finish off the run chase with a big shot. Big wicket for Mark Watt. Rahul scored 50 off 19 balls.
