Deepak Chahar has been a key figure in CSK’s fifth IPL title win. He missed the first half of the season due to injury but played a key role ever since his return to the side. He finished the season with 12 wickets from nine matches including a spell of 1 for 38 in the final.

Deepak Chahar continuously picked wickets inside the powerplay. He is now the leader pacer in the side with a few young pacers in the mix. Chahar’s rise as a strike bowler for India has been another gift from MS Dhoni to Indian cricket.
