TEAMS

Deepak Chahar is a classical swing bowler who added T20 street smarts to his game to hold the record for the best bowling figures in all T20Is: 6 for 7 against Bangladesh in 2019-20.

After making a sensational first-class cricket debut for Rajasthan in 2010-11 - 8 for 10 in Hyderabad's score of 21 all out - Chahar struggled with injuries and fitness, which was probably the reason why Greg Chappell, director of cricket at Rajasthan, had turned him down two years previously. Chahar proceeded to rediscover himself as a T20 bowler, blossoming under the captaincy of MS Dhoni in Chennai Super Kings' triumphant return to IPL in 2018.

A bowler in the mould of Praveen Kumar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Chahar learnt swing bowling in the coaching academy of his father, who would make sure his son bowled only with the new ball despite the financial strain procuring so many new balls brought. Dhoni shrewdly used him with the new ball, often bowling three overs of his in the Powerplay, but Chahar kept working on his other skills and turned himself into a capable bowler at the death, which was evident in his world-record effort: four of his six wickets, including a hat-trick, came with a wet old ball in dewy conditions, against Bangladesh in November 2019.
