Deepak Chougule is a cricketer who played for the state of Karnataka in the Ranji Trophy cricket tournament of India. He has also represented India in the Under-19 international tournaments. He made his debut for his state at a junior level in the Under-13 tournament held at Chennai in 1997. On his debut against Goa, he ended up scoring 400 runs in a single day which is a junior world record for the maximum runs scored in a single day of a cricket match. 

During his early years, he was interested in playing table tennis and cricket. He initially started playing cricket as a bowler. He decided to shift to batting because of a chance knock that he played for his team at Belgaum. He was in a hurry to catch a bus to participate in a table tennis tournament in Bangalore but his side was about to start batting. Seeing his urgency, the coach asked him to open the innings. Deepak went on to score a big knock and helped his side to win the game. This convinced Deepak that he had more potential to play as a batsman than as a bowler and he also decided to shun table tennis in favour of cricket. 

Deepak initially started playing for Dharwad zone in inter-zonal tournaments. In 1997, he bagged his junior cap for Karnataka when he was selected to play for the state in the “The Sportstar” Under-13 tournament in Chennai. In his first match against Goa, he scored an unbeaten 400 runs in a day. This was a junior world record. He represented Karnataka in the Under-16 V. Pattabhiraman Trophy and Under-19 Ghulam Ahmed Trophy tournaments. He won his junior cap for India and played a crucial role to enable India to win the Asia cup Under-17 tournament in Dhaka in 2000. He bagged the Border-Gavaskar scholarship from the National Cricket Academy and was sent to Australia for training. He was selected to play for India in the Under-19 cricket world cup held in New Zealand in the year 2002. He batted in the crucial one-down position in the World cup but India failed to progress to the finals having lost to South Africa in the semis.
