Deepak Chahar has been Chennai Super Kings' go-to man with the new ball in recent years. The master tactician MS Dhoni rarely goes away from abiding by the tried and tested way of giving the new ball to Chahar in the recent seasons. While Chahar is not only economical more often than not, gauging by the standard of powerplay bowling, he has even provided the Men in Yellow with crucial early breakthroughs.
However, lately one of Chahar's old interviews is doing the rounds on the Internet. In this particular conversation, Chahar reveals a big secret about his CSK teammate and star West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo. While speaking on the Kapil Sharma show when there was a fun conversation around the colourful lifestyle of the Men from the Caribbean, Chahar revealed that Bravo comes to the IPL each year with a different girl.
"Bravo has three girlfriends, and he has kids with all three of them. He is not married to any one of them. This is the culture over there. He has a new girlfriend with him every year," he had said on the show which left the audience in splits
I will end up in IPL where I am destined to be: Bravo
Notably, both Bravo and Chahar have not been retained by the franchise ahead of the IPL 2022 auctions. This means that both of them are sure to go under the hammer and it would be interesting to see who successfully bids for them. Having said that, even CSK can look to bid for their loyal servants.
"I am not retained by the CSK, but I will be in the auction, I will be 100 per cent in the auction. I do not know which team I will end up with. I will end up where I am destined to be. I do not know whether I will be picked up by CSK or not, I can be picked up by any other team as I am in the auction," Bravo was quoted as saying by ANI.
For now, there is no clarity on when the auction would take place with several reports doing the rounds that it could be postponed. The BCCI had earlier earmarked February 12 and 13 for the mega-auction in Bengaluru.
