India clinched the 3-match T20I series against Bangladesh thanks to a special effort from pacer Deepak Chahar. The 27-year-old took six wickets for just seven runs in his 3.2 overs as he took wickets every time he was brought into the attack and finished the game with a hat-trick. The Indian bowlers struggled to hold the wet ball and conceded way too many boundaries. However, Chahar’s breakthroughs saw Bangladesh’s chase going wayward and India sealing a 30-run win.

All the major stats and records created by Deepak Chahar with his brilliant bowling performance:

1 – Deepak Chahar became the first Indian to take a hat-trick in Men’s T20I cricket. In Women’s cricket, Ekta Bisht took a hat-trick for India during the 2012 WT20 against Sri Lanka.


1 – Deepak is also now the first pacer to take a 6-wicket haul in Men’s T20I cricket. Across Men’s and Women’s T20Is, Chahar is the 4th pacer with a 6-wicket haul and his 6/7 are the best figures among them. The previous best figures for a pacer in Men’s T20Is were 5/4 by Pedro Arrighi of Argentia against Brazil last month.

6/7 – Chahar recorded the best ever bowling figures in T20I format in Men’s cricket. In this process, he surpassed Ajantha Mendis’ figures of 6/8 against Zimbabwe during the 2012 WT20.

Only one bowler recorded better figures in Women’s cricket. Mas Elysa finished with figures of 6/3 for Malaysia against the China Women in January this year.
