Clerical error: BCCI replaces Deepak with brother Rahul
The BCCI had sent a release which had Deepak’s name in the BP XI squad, which raised a lot of eyebrows
In what turned out to be comedy of errors, the BCCI first named named Rajasthan medium pacer Deepak Chahar in the the Board President’s XI squad for the warm-up games against New Zealand only to replace him with cousin Rahul, who is a leg-spinner. 
The BCCI had on Monday sent a release which had Deepak’s name in the BP XI squad, which raised a lot of eyebrows considering he had no performance to merit a place in the squad. It was later realised that the selectors wanted to pick Rahul, who is a current India U-19 player and also did well during the recent colts tour to England.
However it is understood that they goofed up with the name which led to the clerical error. “It was inadvertently mentioned that Deepak Chahar would represent the Board President’s XI team for the warm-up matches against New Zealand ahead of their ODI series against India. Rahul Chahar will feature in the squad that will play two matches at Cricket Club of India in Mumbai,” The Indian board yesterday admitted the error in a media release.
