Indian player Deepak Chahar took to Instagram on Sunday to share a video of himself playing the tune of a Bollywood hit song from one of Shah Rukh Khan’s greatest films. In the video, Deepak Chahar can be seen playing guitar before heading to Sydney for training. “The mood before practice #quarantine #life,” captioned Deepak Chahar. The 28-year-old pacemaker is in Sydney with the rest of the Indian squad, undergoing the mandatory 14-day quarantine period before the start of a nearly two-month tour of Australia.
Chahar has not been named to the international one-day and test teams for the upcoming series in Australia, but he was selected for the international matches of Twenty20 Down Under.
Chahar was last seen in the Indian Premier League (IPL), representing Chennai Super Kings.
Deepak Chahar played 14 games in the 13th edition of the IPL and picked up 12 wickets, but what stood out for him was his save rate – 7.61.
Chahar has only played 10 T20I matches but holds the record for best Indian bowling tricks in the match’s shortest format.
Chahar had six wickets, giving just seven points against Bangladesh in Nagpur.
India are due to play three ODIs, three T20Is and four test matches in Australia.
The tour will begin with the ODI series, starting November 27.
Virat Kohli and co. will also be seen playing their very first day-night test match overseas.
Adelaide Oval is expected to host the Pink Ball test, which begins on December 17.
