The entire cricket fraternity is missing the Indian Premier League (IPL) and India fast-bowler Deepak Chahar is not an exception either. IPL 2020 was scheduled to start on March 29 and end on May 17. However, the BCCI has suspended the league indefinitely in the light of the pandemic.

As of now, there is absolutely no clarity over when will things become normal. As a result, the fate of the IPL is also not clear. The BCCI has made it clear that it has not given up on hosting the tournament this year. Several reports have suggested that the tournament could take place in October-November if the T20 World Cup is postponed.
And with no action going around at the moment, Deepak Chahar made up for it in an innovative manner. His sister Malti Chahar recently posted a hilarious video on her Instagram profile with the caption: “We miss IPL.”
In the video, Deepak Chahar could be seen bowling to his sister. The pacer marked his run up like he usually does, started running to deliver the ball but just before delivering, he changed his action from over-arm to under-arm as he bowled to his sister. What made the clip even more hilarious was the commentary clip of an old IPL game embedded with it.
Here is the post from Malti:
Deepak Chahar, meanwhile, has not played for India since the home ODI series against West Indies in December. He was sidelined due to a stress fracture on his lower back. But before being injured, he made a big mark in international cricket. He enjoyed a particularly productive 2019 in the shortest format, for India as well as Chennai Super Kings. The highlight of the year was his world-record haul of 6 for 7 against Bangladesh.
