In a video that has gone viral on the Internet, Deepak Chahar turned in a spectator as Dwayne fired against MI. The clip showed Chahar whistling to Dwayne Bravo’s sixes at Dubai from the CSK dressing room on Sunday. During his short stint at the crease as many as 3 sixes for CSK and powered them to 156/6 after they were struggling at 24/4. The post was quite synonymous with the franchise as Chennai Super Kings use #Whistlepodu to support the yellow army. Later in the match, Bravo also picked 3 crucial wickets to help Dhoni-led CSK clinch victory by 20 overs.

He was heading into the match after guiding his CPL franchise St Kitts & Nevis Patriots to glory. He started off from he left off as he continued his Midas touch. The allrounder will now look to guide CSK to the 4th IPL title. The 37-year-old could also announce his retirement after the end of the ongoing season.
On the other hand, Deepak Chahar continued his top form. He jumped to the top five in the IPL 2021 Purple Cap leaderboard. He took a couple of wickets and gave away just 9 runs in his first 3 overs in the powerplay. Not only he contributed to CSK’s victory but also replied to the selectors in style who ignored him for T20 World Cup.
However, the credit of the victory goes to Ruturaj Gaikwad. The youngster slammed 58-ball unbeaten 88 runs to rescue CSK and steer his team to a decent total. He smacked as many as 3 sixes and 9 fours in his innings even as wickets kept falling like a pack of cards from the other end.
