When the CSK was close to ending the IPL league with the defeat, the fans were frustrated with the hat-trick loss, though the Men In Yellow got the berth in the playoffs. However, the fans didn't know that there was a surprise package at the end that will vanish away their disappointment as at the end of the match, CSK pacer Deepak Chahar had attracted massive attention by proposing to her girlfriend. And the proposal has happened with MS Dhoni twisting the tale.
The Chennai Super Kings were playing against the Punjab Kings on Thursday and the CSK fans hoped for a flourishing finish with a big triumph over Punjab. The match was hosted by Dubai International Stadium and CSK opened the innings only to present its flawed state of batting as apart from Faf du Plessis, the rest of the batting contingent held a walking show and ended the innings by putting 134 runs on board. The easy target was made more lenient by the top order batting of Punjab Kings.
Punjab's skipper KL Rahul delivered the captain's innings as he punished the CSK bowlers. With the intense batting, Rahul had successfully led his team to a victory by scoring 98 runs off 42 balls with seven fours and eight sixes. Punjab Kings had chased the target by losing four wickets with seven overs to spare. While Punjab was celebrating the victory, something unusual had unfolded in the stadium that turned everyone's heads. Young CSK pacer Deepak Chahar took everyone to surprise by proposing to his girlfriend Jaya Bharadwaj.
Deepak and Jaya have been dating for a while and the former had planned to propose to his lady love in the current IPL season. Deepak Chahar had planned to propose to her girlfriend during the playoffs as he was reluctant to do during the league. However, there was a sudden change in his plan and the gamechanger was none other than CSK skipper MS Dhoni. Twisting the tale, Dhoni had advised Chahar to propose to his girlfriend during the league.
Chahar had consulted with Dhoni over his plan of proposing to his girlfriend during the playoffs. Dhoni has insisted Chahar propose during the league. Dhoni in fact had advised Chahar to propose to her girlfriend during CSK's match with Delhi Capitals. However, Chahar had refrained from unfolding the surprise considering the nature of the result. As the team had faced Punjab in its final match in the league, Chahar made up his mind as Dhoni's plan and prepared to propose to her lady love after the end of the match.
Chahar was ready with the arrangements despite the result of the match and the pacer had informed his family about the decision in advance. Chahar's parents had accepted and been watching the match from their home to see his son's proposal. At the end of the match, coming from nowhere, Chahar stood on his knees in front of his girlfriend Jaya and made his proposal in the presence of the families of the CSK players. Surprised to have a limelight proposal, Jaya accepted it and they had exchanged greetings.
The video of Chahar's proposal was going viral on social media and it has been reported that they had planned to get married when they return to India from the UAE. 29-year-old Chahar has been one of the outstanding pacers in Indian cricket and has been playing for the CSK for the last few seasons and he is also on Team India's reserve list for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The party didn't end with the proposal as the CSK team had celebrated and congratulated the couple in their hotel. The team had provided a grand reception in the hotel for the couple.
After returning to the hotel, Chahar and Jaya had cut a cake together as the CSK players including Dhoni were seen standing around the couple. As soon as the couple cut the cake and shared each other, Dhoni took hold of Chahar from behind and players Raina, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jadeja, and Uthappa had painted the cake on Chahar and after some time, Chahar was seen sitting on the floor after taking a cake bath. CSK had shared the video of the celebration in the hotel on its official Instagram handle.
