Deepak Chahar, who hit an unbeaten 69 in the second ODI against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, has wowed fans occasionally in the past with spells of seam bowling before disappearing into oblivion.
Only a few like his father knew he could bat as a proper batsman.
“People are surprised. I am not surprised. When we were training him, the priority was bowling but we also told him to take batting seriously. My idea was to have him bowl at 140 kmph, swing the ball both ways and also make him bat as a batsman,” his father Lokendra told IANS.
