Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had a night to forget against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Thursday (7th October) as they were outplayed by a rampaging KL Rahul. CSK’s six-wicket loss was also their third consecutive defeat. Although it was a horrible day for the franchise in yellow, pacer Deepak Chahar made it memorable by going down on his knees to propose his ladylove Jaya Bhardwaj.
Nobody knew Chahar’s plans before and it was only till he reached the stands that his close relatives as well fans anticipated his idea of proposing to the love of his life. As soon as the right-arm pacer took out the ring from the pocket, Bhardwaj was stumped, to say the least. She immediately said yes and the news instantly became viral.
Congratulatory messages were pouring on from all quarters for Chahar as well as for his family. Lokendra Singh Chahar, Deepak’s father shed light on his son’s proposal to Bhardwaj, as reported by Jagran.com. The CSK pacer had planned to propose his ladylove during the playoffs of the ongoing IPL but skipper MS Dhoni advised him to propose Jaya in their final league game.
One thing is clear from Lokendra Singh’s comments that Dhoni had anticipated well in advance of Chahar’s plans. The pacer’s father also added that it was a proud moment for the family that close to 180 countries could see the couple’s engagement live. He concluded by saying that the marriage plans will be discussed once the couple returns from the UAE.
CSK players and support staff were happy for the couple. Speaking about Chahar’s performance in the match, the pacer had a forgettable day at the office as he picked one wicket and gave away 48 runs.
