IPL 2018: 5 players who can replace Deepak Chahar for CSK's next few games
Chahar has been ruled out for two weeks and CSK have a major headache in deciding who should replace him.
Chennai Super Kings' campaign received a jolt when Deepak Chahar pulled up with a hamstring issue in the game against Mumbai Indians. He has since been ruled out for a minimum of two weeks which means the CSK think tank need to turn to their bench for reinforcements.
With games coming in thick and fast, CSK need to make a decision, and quickly. On that note, here are five players who can replace the uncapped Chahar in the next few games for CSK:
#1 David Willey
David Willey remained unsold at the 2018 IPL auctions at his base price of 2 crores. However, he was roped in by CSK later on as a replacement for Kedar Jadhav. Willey has not yet gotten a game which is rather surprising considering CSK's bowling woes.
Willey has the ability to swing the new ball and also return at the death and deliver a few quick yorkers. He can also contribute quick runs lower down the order to swell the side's total.
Willey can be roped in in place of Chahar and slotted into the batting order ahead of the likes of Jadeja and Bravo. However, this would mean Sam Billings or Imran Tahir would have to be replaced - by either Narayan Jagadeesan or Karn Sharma.
