Indian cricketer Deepak Chahar was all smiles despite Chennai Super Kings' loss to Punjab Kings on Thursday evening in Sharjah as the bowler proposed to his girlfriend after the match.
"Picture says it all. Need all your blessings #taken" wrote Deepak announcing his engagement on social media.
IPL team CSK also uploaded a video of the proposal on their social media as Deepak is seen surprising his girlfriend in the stands after the match.
KL Rahul's unbeaten 98 meant Chennai finished on the losing end of the match but Chahar was all smiles as he celebrated his engagement.
Chennai Super Kings were one of the first teams to qualify for the IPL 2021 playoffs with Delhi Capitals and Royals Challengers Bangalore having also booked their spots.
Chahar has been among the best performers for the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021 so far, leading the bowling attack with great effectiveness, continuously troubled batters in the powerplay as they have looked to attack Chennai.
A reserve for the T20 squad in the Indian team for the upcoming men’s T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman, Chahar has bagged 13 wickets in as many games this season with a best of 4/13 and an average of 30.23. His economy rate is 8.36.
Ahead of their last game against Punjab, Chahar told Nikhil Chopra during the official broadcast that he made changes to his style after last season.
"I took experience from last year when we played in the UAE. I knew what line and length I had to bowl. There is some help for the bowlers on this Dubai pitch compared to last year. Dubai and Abu Dhabi have been slower surfaces. So if you bowl in the right areas, you will get the return. I worked on my bowling during the offseason," Chahar said.
