Remembering this auction, Deepak Chahar’s father Lokendra Chahar says, “It was our mistake. Deepak had filled the form as an all-rounder. The players’ auction in the all-rounder category was held late on the same day. Rahul went as a bowler. Rahul’s name came up early in the auction. Later came the lamp. By the time Deepak’s name was called, the teams had lost a lot of money, otherwise they would have got more than Rs 2 crore.” Lokendra Chahar has taught Deepak and Rahul the nuances of cricket in the early days.
Deepak has a good record as a batsman and has played some important innings in the past as well. He also played a memorable innings for CSK when he was promoted to No. He scored 39 runs in 20 balls while batting fast. Lokendra Chahar further said, “As far as his bowling is concerned, Deepak is bowling very slow and can reach beyond 140.”

Lokendra says, “Deepak understands his body and limitations. If you bowl at a speed of more than 140 km/h, you can throw 13-14 in a day. But if he worked on bowling longer spells, he would be a bowler at 130 km/h. If he bowls faster than that, he will need more power. Chances of getting injured are high.
