Indian fast bowler Deepak Chahar became a butt of jokes on social media following a blunder with regards to his year of birth by Wikipedia.
Chahar, who has represented his country in 3 50-over games and 13 Twenty20 Internationals, was born on August 07, 1992, and is thus 28 years old.
However, whoever wrote his profile on Wikipedia, had made a major blunder while mentioning the same. According to Wikipedia, Deepak Chahar was born on August 07, 1972, which makes him 48 years old.
Deepak Chahar’s Malti was at the forefront when it came to trolling the India and Chennai Super Kings fast bowler.
The actress took to her official Twitter account where she not only posted the screenshot of Deepak Chahar’s Wikipedia profile but also took a hilarious dig at her brother, stating that he is the fittest player at 48.
“Thanks to Wikipedia…finally Deepak is elder to me. Fittest player at 48 @deepak_chahar9 @Wikipedia #deepakchahhar,” Malti tweeted.

Deepak Chahar’s career continues to be plagued by injuries
Meanwhile, injuries continue to halt Deepak Chahar’s career. Chahar, who happens to be the only Indian men’s bowler and second overall after Ekta Bisht, to claim a hat-trick in Twenty20 Internationals, suffered a back injury at a time when he was at the peak of his powers and was increasingly looking to cement a permanent place in the white-ball set-up.
The back injury that he suffered during the 2019 home season coupled with the Covid-19 enforced lockdown meant that Deepak Chahar missed out from playing competitive cricket for a better part of 9 months.
And, since his return, he hasn’t been at his best. He had a middling IPL 2020 campaign, a forgettable T20I series Down Under, and a poor Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 season before being sidelined by yet another injury.
