Relationship

At an IPL match held in 2021, Deepak Chahar met Jaya Bharadwaj for the first time. Jaya is from Delhi and she is the sister of former Bigg Boss contestant Sidharth Bhardwaj. Soon, Deepak and Jaya became close friends and later the couple fell in love with each other.

At the IPL 2021, Deepak proposed to Jaya after CSK’s match against Punjab Kings (PBKS). The cricketer also shared a video on his Instagram account where he is seen kneeling down and proposing to his girlfriend. On June 1st, 2022, Deepak Chahar tied the knot with Jaya at a hotel in Agra.

Education

Deepak was unable to attend regular school after the eighth standard as he was undergoing rigorous cricket coaching sessions. In spite of time constraints, he later completed graduation also. The name of the school at which Deepak did his initial days of study is not available in the public domain.

Controversies

On 12th July 2021, former Indian international cricketer Venkatesh Prasad posted a controversial tweet regarding Deepak and former Australian cricketer Greg Chappel. As per the tweet, Deepak Chahar was once rejected by Greg, the former Indian cricket coach when the young cricketer was trying to get an entry into the Rajasthan Cricket Association.

The reason cited for Deepak’s rejection was his height and Greg also told him to look for a different occupation. However, later in his career, Deepak went on to win a match single-handedly for India. Prasad concludes his tweet by stating that it is important to believe in oneself and there is no need to take overseas coaches too seriously. 

Profession

When Deepak was 12 years of age, it was his father Lokendra who first identified the cricketing talent in his son. Back then, the young boy had a few natural qualities and this made Lokendra realize that his son had potential in him. Thus, Lokendra quit his job at the Indian Air Force, and out of his savings, he built two pitches, a turf, and concrete so that his son could get trained on those pitches. In the initial days, it was Virendra who used to train Deepak.

At the age of 18, Deepak Chahar played his debut first-class cricket match for Rajasthan against Hyderabad at the 2010–11 Ranji Trophy. An incredible performance, Deepak took eight wickets in the match by conceding just 10 runs. It paved the way for the cricketer to secure a berth with Rising Pune Supergiants, a franchise of the Indian Premier League. Later, at the 2018 IPL auction, Deepak was bought by Chennai Super Kings. In the same year, in October, the cricketer was selected for the India B squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy.

In May 2018, Deepak Chahar made his foray into international cricket, when he was picked for India’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the tour of England. On 8 July 2018, he made his T20I debut and also bagged a wicket. Following that, in September 2018, Deepak made his One Day International debut against Afghanistan at the 2018 Asia Cup. 

In the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, Deepak took six wickets by conceding just seven runs in 3.2 overs and created a new record for the best bowling figures in a men’s T20I.
