Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer Deepak Chahar said that after having a bad season last year in IPL 2020, he was confident of doing well in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021).
The right-handed pacer from Rajasthan picked 14 wickets in 15 matches for CSK in IPL 2021 with the best bowling of 4/13 and economy of 8.35. The tournament has become more special for Deepak Chahar, as he got engaged to his girlfriend Jaya Bharadwaj after CSK played their last league match.
“We have had many ups and downs. Very happy that we finished well. Happy to be on the winning side in my 4th IPL final. There was dew. But we handled pressure thanks to the experience. We were on the lookout for a wicket because we knew their lower order wasn’t performing. We had a bad season last season but we had the confidence to do well this season. We all play for MS as he is the captain of the ship,” Chahar said.
Chahar picked one wicket in the IPL 2021 final against KKR as CSK beat them by 27 runs to scalp their fourth IPL title. The side has previously won the tournament in 2010, 2011, and 2018.
