Domestic Career

In 2008, at the age of 16, the talented medium-pacer was turned down by Greg Chappell, the then-director of the Rajasthan Cricket Association academy. However, the brave pace bowler did not lose heart and continued to knock on the state team’s doors, eventually breaking into it during the 2010-11 Ranji season.

Chahar, a bowler in the mould of Praveen Kumar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, learnt swing bowling at his father’s coaching academy, where amid the financial pressure procuring so many new balls brought, he made sure his son bowled only with the new ball.

Chahar began his List A career by taking 2 for 61 in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match between Central Zone and Vidarbha in February 2010. In three matches, he took five wickets.

Chahar made a sensational first-class debut for Rajasthan in November, taking 8 wickets for 10 runs in a Ranji Trophy Plate League match against Hyderabad in Jaipur.

His awe-inspiring stature drenched Hyderabad, resulting in the lowest team number in the Indian domestic circuit.

On his first-class debut, he had the second-best bowling numbers. Chahar took four wickets in the first innings of the second match against Goa.

In his first Ranji season, Chahar’s ability to swing the ball in both directions made him a standout player. In the Plate round, he took 30 wickets in six matches at 19.63, ensuring Rajasthan’s qualification for the Elite phase.

He took 21 wickets in eight matches at 37.66 in the Elite stage of the 2010-11 season, helping his side win the Ranji Trophy for the first time.

Chahar bowled brilliantly in the 2017-2018 Syed Mushtaq Trophy, taking 19 wickets at an incredible pace of 9.94 in nine matches.

In the super league round, he went 5 for 15 to beat star-studded Karnataka. He has contributed 51 runs, including a match-winning unbeaten 22 against Jharkhand at Eden Gardens in January 2018.

IPL Career

Deepak Chahar was snatched up by the new franchise Rising Pune Supergiants after a string of outstanding results in the domestic circuit. Chahar, on the other hand, only managed to play five games and take one wicket during his two years in Pune.

When he moved to Chennai Super Kings in 2018, however, he had a tremendous turnaround in his results. MS Dhoni, who had seen Chahar in the RPS camp, assigned him the task of opening the bowling, which the Rajasthan bowler took advantage of.

Chahar took 10 wickets in 12 games during the 2018 season, demonstrating that he has what it took to bowl on the biggest level. He had a breakout year in 2019, thanks to skipper MS Dhoni’s shrewd use of the new ball, with him bowling three overs in the Powerplay on most occasions. Chahar bowled 22 wickets at an average of 21.90 and a miser economy rate of 7.47 in 17 matches this season.

Deepak Chahar made his One Day International debut for India against Afghanistan on September 25, 2018, during the 2018 Asia Cup. He has only played two matches and taken two wickets so far.

Chahar was named in India’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the England series in May 2018. Jason Roy was sacked in his debut match against England. Deepak was then called up for a three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, where he played a key role in helping India win the series in the final match. With six wickets for seven runs in 3.2 innings, he had the best bowling figures in T20Is. His hat-trick arrived with a moist old ball in dewy weather, and he set a new world record.

Chahar’s transformation from a new ball specialist to a pacer who can be called upon at any stage over the last two years has been remarkable, and despite being primarily a swing bowler, his growing repertoire of variations has allowed him to be considered for the World T20 Cup, which has been postponed until 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
