Chennai Super Kings Deepak Chahar is currently enjoying the best time in his professional career as the pacer has established his place in the playing XI of the three-time IPL champions. The 28-year-old also proved his credentials at the top level with a hat-trick against Bangladesh last year. Deepak was first Indian pacer to achieve the feat in the shortest format of the game while retaining the best T20 bowling figures of 6 wickets for mere seven runs.

On Thursday, the CSK bowler gave fans a peak inside his life before he achieved stardom as he took to Instagram to reveal a photo of him with Shane Watson 15 years ago and merged it nto a collage with a present day photo with the Oz cricketer.

15 years ago, Watson’s exploits as an all-rounder were famous throughout the globe and a 13-year-old Chahar was yet to find his way into the domestic circuit. In the older photo, Watson could be seen donning Australia’s training jersey in India during an India-Australia tour while a young and excited Deepak could be seen standing beside him. He captioned the photo, "15 years challenge beat that guys. One and only THE LEGENDARY Shane Watson . #never #stop #dreaming".

Deepak Chahar’s start to the season so far hasn’t been on the best of fronts as the cricketer tested positive for COVID-19 earlier after reaching the UAE, returned negative twice and resumed training with the CSK team.
