India pacer Deepak Chahar was targeting return to competitive cricket through IPL having aggravated his back injury in December last year. However, the coronavirus induced forced-break has given him more time to work to recover and focus on his fitness. <p></p> <p></p>Chahar is learning new tricks and looking forward to bowling again. <p></p> <p></p>I am looking forward to bowling again. For now, the idea is to stay fit," the 27-year-old told Chennai Super Kings in an interview. "When things are not in your control, there is little you can do. So, I focus on what I can do during that time. I am trying to learn new things, focus on my fitness - as you know I was injured and getting back. This gives me more time to recover." <p></p> <p></p>Chahar took 6/7 against Bangladesh last year, including a hat-trick, to set the record for the best bowling figures in a T20I. He has so far played three ODIs and 10 T20Is, taking 19 wickets combined. <p></p> <p></p>Chahar, who represents CSK, admits had the IPL started as per its original schedule, he would have missed few matches. "Had the IPL season started on time, I would have missed the first few matches," he said. <p></p> <p></p>With life coming to a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic, Chahar has advised everyone to keep a positive mindset and try learning something new. "It is obviously a difficult time for all of us, everything coming to a standstill. Loss of business and jobs, especially for daily wage workers. Be safe, learn something new now that you have time. Stay positive, stay in the time," he said.
