Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pace bowler Deepak Chahar revealed on Wednesday that he does not make too much fuss about clothes and prefers wearing something that looks good on him, rather than choosing expensive or branded outfits.

Chahar, who has 80 T20 and 14 T20I wickets, is plying his trade for the yellow army in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. In a video chat posted by the official channel of the CSK franchise, he was asked interesting questions related to his personal choices as well some of the choices of teammates. He also revealed the most fashionable players of the CSK team.

Cherry-picking the questions thrown at him in his “short, sweet and stylish” manner in a video posted by the franchise, he revealed quite a few interesting facts about his personal life as well.

On being asked about the choice of clothes, he said “It’s not about wearing expensive clothes, it’s about what looks good on you. It might be cheap, it might be a T-shirt costing just Rs 100, but it might look good on you. So, one need not go after (expensive) brands. “I don’t wear expensive stuff. I only wear what I like and what looks good on me,” he added.

Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma the most fashionable players: Deepak Chahar

Terming Dwayne Bravo and Karn Sharma the most “fashionable” players in the CSK squad, he said, “they do like wearing fancy clothes”. He was also asked whether he likes a clean-shaven or a bearded look, on which the 28-year-old told “I prefer something in between,”

Revealing how he got his nickname ‘Cherry’, the Agra-born said “There is a story behind this. When I made my first-class debut, I was only 17-and-a-half and all the others in the team were very senior to me…so when you cheer a bowler, you generally take his name. In my case, it was either Deepak or Chahar, which took very long to pronounce… like shabash (congratulations) Chahar or shabash (Deepak).

“One of our wicket-keepers, Rohit Jalani, started calling me ‘Cherry’ as it was easy to pronounce. Since that day, I suppose in 2009, the nickname has stuck,” added Chahar.
