profile

Cousin of Deepak Chahar, that was the initial identity of Rahul Chahar. But unlike Deepak, Rahul is a leg spinner who represents Rajasthan in domestic cricket. Known for his magical googlies, the junior Chahar gave up his studies very early to focus on his cricket.


Rahul has represented India in the U-19 as well as U-23 tournaments. He made his Ranji Trophy debut and the Vijay Hazare trophy debut at a young age of 17 years in the 2016-17 season. Then came the most memorable moment of his life in February 2017 where he was bought by the Dhoni-led Pune franchise. Though he got to play only 3 matches in that tournament he learnt a lot from the likes of MS Dhoni, Imran Tahir and other senior players.


The leggie was included in the Mumbai squad for the 2018 season of the Indian T20 League but didn't get any opportunity. Later that year, Rahul showcased his class in the Vijay Hazare Trophy where he was the leading wicket-taker for Rajasthan with 20 wickets. The 2019 edition of the Indian T20 League turned out to be a fruitful one for him. He impressed one and all with his art of leg spin bowling and his combined bowling figures of Qualifier 1 and Final, 8-0-28-3, speak volumes about his talent.


At a very young age, Rahul has tasted enough success in the domestic circuit and will look forward to growing into a consistent spinner for the Indian team as well. With the increasing competition in the spin department, Rahul shall be one of the players to watch out for. Seeing his ability and talent an international call up was not far from him and eventually, in July 2019, he was named in India's T20I squad for the tour of West Indies.
