The Match no. 53 of the Indian Premier League saw some brilliant knocks from Faf du Plessis & KL Rahul. But, the match eventually turned out to be a one-sided affair when KL’s superb 98* took them home in their last league match of the tournament.
Although, it wasn’t a great day for MS Dhoni & Men on the field but what made the day at the end of this game was Deepak Chahar’s proposal to long-time girlfriend Jaya Bharadwaj.
Not only did the teams & franchise shower blessing to this new couple, but even fans flooded social media to shower some praise to the 29-year-old pacer.
MS Dhoni’s silent contribution to this proposal
Deepak Chahar went ahead to thanks the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) & Jay Shah, Secretary - BCCI for this special day in his life, stating, “Special thanks to @bcci and @IPL and @JayShah sir for making this day happen. Thank you so much”
However, if reports are to be believed legend MS Dhoni was equally a part of this plan. MS Dhoni had told Deepak Chahar to propose his girlfriend after the last league match, which although the side lost by 6 wickets, with 42 balls remaining.
Deepak Chahar wanted to propose Jaya in the playoffs, but it was MS who advised Chahar to get it done before the playoffs, stated a report by Dainik Jagran.
