Deepak Chahar has established himself as one of India’s premier fast bowlers in spite of all the obstacles life threw at him. Following his impressive debut for Rajasthan in the Ranji Trophy against Hyderabad, where he picked up a staggering eight wickets, big things were expected of the youngster. Sadly, his career has been plagued by injuries - this has prevented him from becoming a national team regular. Having impressed in the past two editions of the IPL with the Chennai Super Kings, he would be itching to prove anyone who still doubts him wrong.

Chahar may not be the fastest of bowlers, regularly clocking in a decent 135-140 kph, rather it is his ability to swing the ball both ways that make him stand out. Even though he is mainly a bowler, he is certainly capable of holding his own with a bat as well. His power-packed 39 from 20 against Kings XI Punjab is a prime example of his big-hitting. An integral part of the 2018 IPL-winning CSK side, he will certainly be looking to impress with his performances in the current season too.
Deepak Chahar’s best performance for the national team came in the final ODI against Bangladesh. In 3.2 overs, he took six wickets and gave away just seven runs.
