Big blow for CSK
Daniel Vettori said, if Deepak Chahar misses IPL 2022, then it will be a big blow for CSK. He believes that in such a situation, only a foreign bowler can replace him. According to Vettori, it will be a huge loss if Deepak does not play at the beginning of the season.
CSK will have to depend on foreign bowlers
“I think they have to depend on their foreign bowlers, so Adam Milne and Chris Jordan can get a chance, those two foreign bowlers can potentially come in,” he said. This would mean that a strong player like Devon Conway will not be able to make it to the playing XI, due to which he will have to bring Uthappa in.

Milne can replace the lamp
During this – when Aakash Chopra asked Daniel Vettori who can replace Deepak Chahar. In response, Vettori said, “I think it will be Adam Milne.” His performance across the globe has been exceptional.

During this, he took the names of Tushar Deshpande and Simranjit Singh.
