The 28-year-old further revealed that he tried to do some training, in order to ensure proper fitness on making a comeback to the team. The pacer also expressed confidence over his physique, having bowled in the nets during a team training session. “I was watching the team’s practice sessions. I always take things positive. I tried to do some exercises, some training so that I can be fit when I come back. I posted few things. Hopefully, I bowled yesterday, so I am feeling pretty well and in good shape.

The 28-year-old further hailed all-rounder Shane Watson’s batting during the practice sessions. “He’s hitting it out of the park and against the wind. Hopefully, he continues for the next two months,” he stated.
Chahar also had words of praise for Indian batsman Murali Vijay, who he described as looking “pumped up”. “He hit some beautiful sixes and boundaries over covers. He looks pumped up.”
CSK will be battling it out against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the opening clash of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), on September 19. The former will be missing out on the services of spinner Harbhajan Singh, who has opted out of the tournament due to personal reasons.
