It has to be noted that India was down 193/7 when India’s head coach Rahul Dravid promoted Deepak Chahar to go before Bhuvneshwar Kumar. It was looking that India would certainly lose the game from that point in time and Lankan bowlers were gaining all the strength. However, the intent shown by Chahar and Kumar led India to surpass the target of 276 runs. Suryakumar Yadav chipped in with vital fifty in between (53 off 44). Chahar was declared as the player of the match for his classy innings and picking two wickets alongside.
“It was hot there, we did well there. Got two wickets. We managed to stop them at 270. It was a decent score [to chase] on this wicket. Only one thing that was going on in my mind: this is the kind of innings I’ve been dreaming of. No better way to win the match for the country. Rahul sir told me to play with all the balls. I’ve played a few innings with India A and I think he has belief in me. He told me he thinks I’m good enough to be a No. 7. He has belief in me. Hopefully, in the coming matches I don’t have to bat. When we came under 50 is when I believed we can win. Before that, it was ball by ball. I took some risks after.,” said Chahar after the match.
