KL Rahul led Punjab Kings bid goodbye to the IPL 2021 after registering a thumping victory against the three times champions Chennai Super Kings in their last league match which was played yesterday at Dubai International Stadium. MS Dhoni led CSK is already in the play-offs and this defeat will have no effect on its prospects but yesterday’s match will always be remembered for an incident which has taken place off-the-field.
Deepak Chahar, the CSK bowler, didn’t have a good day on the field and he proved to be quite expensive as he gave only 48 runs in the 4 overs that he bowled and was able to dismiss only one batsman. However, he made his day memorable by proposing his girlfriend Jaya Bharadwaj in the stadium after the match. Jaya had no idea about the plans of Deepak Chahar and she could not believe it when the latter sat down on his knees in the stands and proposed. Jaya made no delay in saying YES and they both hugged each other while people standing around them were clapping for them as the couple exchanged rings.
Check out the pics:
Soon the photos and videos of the incident went viral and people started congratulating them. Deepak Chahar also posted a couple of photos of the beautiful moment with the caption, “Picture says it all. Need all your blessings #taken” with a ring emoji.
Here is the video of the ‘special moment’:

As far as the match is concerned, PBKS won the toss and decided to bowl first. The PBKS bowlers proved this decision correct as they wrapped up CSK for a meager total in the 20 overs. The CSK opener Faf du Plessis played a beautiful innings of 75 runs for which he played 55 balls and his innings included 8 fours & 2 sixes. However, no other CSK batsman was able to show much resistance to superb bowling done by the PBKS bowlers and the Chennai team could manage only 134/6.
The PBKS skipper KL Rahul led from the front as he played a smashing innings of 98 runs not out in 42 deliveries and his innings included 7 fours & 8 sixes. The Punjab team achieved the target with 6 wickets in hand and 42 balls remaining in their innings.
Congratulations to the lovely couple Deepak Chahar and Jaya Bharadwaj!
