Live IND vs ZIM – 3rd ODI between India and Zimbabwe: Deepak Chahar has been given the all-clear to play in the third One-Day International against Zimbabwe, which will relieve selectors and supporters alike. He was rested for the second game after an innings that helped win the first ODI. Chahar’s absence contributed to another injury scare prior to the Asia Cup 2022 because he didn’t return to competitive cricket for six months. The pacer, though, is in good health and is prepared for the third ODI.
“Deepak is doing great, everything. Just a precaution, really. After such a protracted injury struggle, the team management and the physios did not want him to rush. He must take it slow. He is fit to participate in the third ODI.
It should be mentioned that Deepak Chahar bowled 7 consecutive overs while playing in the first ODI. It worked like a charm, as evidenced by his 3/27 and some amazing swinging deliveries that shook Zimbabwe. In the first ODI, he did not field for very long either. It sparked questions about whether he was okay with everything. But given the current situation, resting him for the second ODI was a preventative move.
“Deepak will play a key role in future series’ white-ball versions. Therefore, we must manage his workload. Yes, it is improper to disrupt his rhythm after such an outstanding stretch. However, we must also make sure that he bowls additional fantastic spells in other series. He was not utilised in the second game for this reason, the BCCI official continued.
After battling an injury, Deepak Chahar is ready to roar in IND vs. ZIM live.
Deepak Chahar, 30, missed more than six months of action due to back and hamstring injuries, respectively.
He absolutely missed the IPL 2022. He also missed the England tour, the home series against the West Indies, and the South African series.
He was also excluded from the West Indies tour as a precaution.
In contrast, he was at his spectacular best when he returned to action in Zimbabwe. The heat from his swinging deliveries was unbearable.
He bowled 30 dot balls in his 7-over period, took 3 wickets, and scored 27 runs in return.
As a precaution, he was soon rested for the second ODI.
However, he is anticipated to be chosen for the Asia Cup 2022 starting lineup rather than Avesh Khan.
For his Asia Cup progress, the third One-Day International against Zimbabwe on Monday will be essential.
As previously reported by InsideSport, Deepak Chahar is still vying to join the Asia Cup 2022 main roster. Together with Axar Patel and Shreyas Iyer, he was nominated to the reserves. Avesh Khan was a member of the core group. Because he was recovering from an injury, the selectors did not want to immediately include him in the starting lineup. However, the selectors will give it some thought now that it is obvious he is prepared for high-intensity bowling.
“It goes without saying that you could not have chosen him for the Asia Cup right immediately given that he is recovering from an injury. Before the competition, we have the ability to substitute a player.
“We are closely monitoring. We’ll consider it if he succeeds and regains his rhythm.
