Malti Chahar, Deepak Chahar

Actress Malti Chahar shares a childhood photo on her brother Deepak Chahar’s 27th birthday

Fast bowler Deepak Chahar caught the selector’s attention with his brilliant performances for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL), after which he soon appeared in Team India’s Blue jersey.


Chahar’s performance in the last game of the recently concluded T20I series against West Indies prompted India captain Virat Kohli to put the pacer’s new-ball skills on par with those of the senior pro’s.

“He was really lethal with the new ball,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation of Chahar’s incisive opening spell that fetched him match-winning figures of 3-1-4-3. “The way he swings it and the areas he bowls in, he puts the batsman in a lot of trouble.


“With the new ball, his skills are right up there [with Bhuvneshwar’s], swinging it both ways and getting a lot with the new ball in any conditions, and that has been his USP in the IPL as well.”

Consistently pitching the ball up, Deepak swung his way to the Player of the Match award on the eve of his 27th birthday as India clinched the series 3-0.

Meanwhile, on her brother’s birthday, Deepak’s sister and model-turned-actress Malti Chahar shared a childhood photo on social media.

“Wish you a very happy birthday bro😘 #DeepakChahar 😘
I am blessed to have you as my brother.
I love you..you are a wonderful person and pure hearted soul ❀️
Wish you all the success and every happiness in this world 😘
#happybirthdaydeepak.”Β 

Deepak’s exploits in the last IPL had fetched him a spot among India’s nets bowlers for the 2019 ODI World Cup. Given he can contribute with the bat as well, with Tuesday’s match-winning performance, Chahar might have made an early case for a place in the squad for the 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia.
