As Indian won the series opener against New Zealand in Jaipur, Deepak Chahar grabbed the spotlight as he had a showdown with Kiwi opener Martin Guptill. The duo was involved in a battle of death stares in the 18th over of the game. Guptill smashed the first ball of the over for a humongous 98m six and stared down Chahar who had a bad day at the office.
The very next ball, Chahar came roaring back as he sent the Kiwi opener packing. The Indian quick outfoxed Guptill as he bowled a slower one and shortened the length. Shreyas Iyer covered much ground to complete the catch and this time it was Deepak Chahar who gave the death stare to send Guptill off.

With the series opener taking place in Jaipur, Deepak Chahar’s home ground, his family was in the audience. His sister Malti Chahar was seated close to the boundary line and as the Indian quick was stationed close to her, she started calling to him repeatedly. Chahar responded and greeted his sister before he ran off to collect the ball.
Malti Chahar took to social media to share a video of the incident labelling it as her “fan moment”. In the video, Deepak Chahar could be clearly seen asking Malti about his finance Jaya Bharadwaj saying, “Kidhar hai woh?” The couple got engaged during the second leg of IPL 2021 in Dubai.
