Deepak Chahar Determined To Earn National Spot Back
Speaking to PTI Bhasha about his injuries and his wish to make a comeback in the national team, Chahar said: “A player should not get disappointed by injuries. These things are not in a player’s hands. My priority right now is to remain fit and be available for the team. I will give my 100 percent for the team whenever I get a chance,”
He added: “In my case it can also be said that I was having a bad time. Last year I suffered a back injury, which is serious for a fast bowler but now I am completely fit. I am very happy with my bowling at the moment. I am trying to make a comeback into the national team. I recently played the RPL (Rajasthan Premier League) tournament. Till Sunday, I was at the National Cricket Academy. I was practising with the Indian team, which is going to China for the Asian Games,”
He also talked about how he is preparing to make a comeback in the Indian cricket team after recovering from injuries that he suffered during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Chahar said, “I am fit now. Whichever tournaments I get to play, like the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, I would try to do well in them. That is all I can control as a player. We cannot decide anything else as players. My mindset is to do well in every chance I get,”
He further also talked about India’s chances at the World Cup, the pacer said that India has great chances and will have the home advantage in the tournament. He said:
“India has good chances in the tournament. We won last time when it was held in India. Players know the conditions and pitches well and enjoy a home advantage. I cannot predict top four teams since all teams are good,”
