It's a rare sight to see two brothers from the same family get a chance to represent the country at the biggest stage. Among the current set of players after Hardik and Krunal Pandya, Deepak and Rahul Chahar might get a chance to play for the national side in the same game.

In an interview with the BCCI.tv, the Chahar brothers revealed that it was a dream come true for them.

"I started playing first, and when Rahul also started playing, it was our dream to play together for the country. In fact it was the family's dream that we both play for India. The background that we come from, it’s a big deal that one kid gets to play for the country, but now it’s us who'll be representing the nation," Deepak said.

Deepak Chahar has already played a game for the Indian side in both the shorter versions of the game. He received a call-up to the national side after some brilliant performances for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. His brother Rahul, is in line to make his debut in the shortest format of the game against the West Indies.

"It's a great feeling to be making my debut alongside my brother. When I had started playing cricket my uncle wanted us to represent India together. He always told me that it will be far great achievement if the two of us play international cricket, rather than just one of us," Rahul said.

"When Rahul started playing, we used to practice on cement turf with synthetic balls. Once we were playing on that wicket and the ball bounced more than usual and hit him on the chest. The next ball too hit him on the same spot. Since then, for some reason, he has encountered problems in facing me," Deepak said.

Team India will face West Indies in the first T20I at Lauderhill, Florida on 3rd August.
