Early Life and Family

Chahar was born in 1992 in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. His father, Lokendra Singh Chahar is retired from the Indian Air Force and his mother, Pushpa Chahar, is a homemaker. He has one elder sibling Malti Chahar, who is a Bollywood film actress.

He proposed to his girlfriend Jaya Bhardwaj during his team’s last league-stage match of the 2021 Indian Premier League.

Domestic Career

Chahar took eight wickets for 10 runs (8/10) on his first-class cricket debut in the 2010–11 Ranji Trophy. Hyderabad were bowled out for just 21 runs, the lowest total in Ranji Trophy history. Chahar’s swing bowling soon earned him a youth contract with Rising Pune Supergiants, an Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket franchise. In October 2016, he worked with international coaches Ian Pont and Catherine Dalton in Jaipur as part of Rajasthan’s development camp.

In January 2018, he was bought by Chennai Super Kings in the 2018 IPL auction. In October 2018, he was named in India B’s squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy.

International Career

In May 2018, he was named in India’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the team’s tour of England. He made his T20I debut on 8 July 2018, taking one wicket. He made his One Day International debut against Afghanistan in September 2018 during the 2018 Asia Cup.

He was selected in the Indian Twenty20 squad against West Indies in 2019, playing in the final match of the series and winning the player of the match award after skin three wickets for four runs. He was subsequently selected for the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh. In the final match of the series he took the best bowling figures in men’s T20Is, with six wickets for seven runs from 3.2 overs. During the series, he also took the first hat-trick by a bowler for India in T20I and his first five-wicket haul in T20Is.

In July 2021, Chahar scored his maiden ODI half-century, and in September was named as one of three reserve players in India’s squad for the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. On 2022 January 23 he scored his 2nd half century in ODIs against South Africa.
