5. Deepak Chahar bags best-ever figures by an Indian in T20Is
India took the stage alongside Bangladesh for the final game of the three-match T20I series in November 2019 in Nagpur. The hosts batted first and posted 174 runs on the board, courtesy of half-centuries from KL Rahul (52 runs off 35 balls) and Shreyas Iyer (66 runs off 33 balls).
Defending 174, Deepak Chahar gave India an ideal start with the ball, picking up two wickets in his opening spell. However, Mohammad Naim and Mohammad Mithun led Bangladesh’s recovery and stitched a 98-run stand to put their side in a strong position. But Chahar came into the attack and broke the threatening partnership by getting rid of Mithun.
Then at the fag end of the innings, the Indian swing bowler took a superb hat-trick to bundle Mahmudullah & co. for 144 runs. Chahar ended the match with an insane spell of 3.2-0-7-6. With such an exceptional bowling effort, he registered India’s best figures in T20Is, surpassing Yuzvendra Chahal's phenomenal six-wicket haul against England in February 2017.
When India faced the Three Lions in the final match of the T20I series, Chahal wreaked havoc with the ball, bagging six wickets for mere 25 runs to help his team win the game by 75 runs.
