Deepak Chahar Profile
Deepak Chahar stormed into the first-class cricket with a stunning spell of 8/10 on his debut against Hyderabad. The right-arm pacer immediately became famous for his lethal in-swing that broke the defenses of the batsmen. Soon, the hype died away, and Deepak started going unnoticed. He then came back with stirring performances in the IPL and domestic cricket. He is currently a part of India’s T20I team.
Quiet patch after a fiery start
Deepak failed to build upon his early success. Teams soon worked him out, and his bowling lost the edge. The young fast bowler played regularly but soon started to drift away from the national radar. His lack of express pace and inability with the old ball started troubling him. In October 2016, he trained under fast bowling coach Ian Pont at Rajasthan which helped him regain his confidence.
Success in IPL and India debut
Playing for Rising Pune Supergiants, Deepak did not enjoy great success, but his fortunes changed when he turned out for Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni uses him intelligently as the skipper gives Deepak the powerplay overs where he can bowl with the new ball. In two IPLs, 2018 and 2019, the bowler has taken 32 wickets in 29 matches. His IPL performances helped him earn ODI and T20I debut for India.
International cricket of Deepak Chahar
Deepak made his ODI debut against Afghanistan in Sep 2018 in Dubai. He was expensive in his brief spell (37 runs, four overs) but managed to dismiss Afghan captain, Naib. Deepak was recently picked for T20Is against England and West Indies. On T20I debut, he conceded 43 runs versus England and took the sole wicket of Jason Roy.
The highlight for Deepak arrived in the Caribbean. In the 3rd T20I on tour, the pacer registered the figures of 3-1-4-3! It was the India debut for his brother, Rahul Chahar. Deepak was named player of the match for his superb spell.
