India recovered from 193 for 7 to chase a target of 276 against Sri Lanka and clinch the three-match ODI series 2-0. Coming into bat at number eight, Deepak Chahar scored a brilliant 69 not out off 82 balls with the aid of seven fours and a six. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also played a mature hand of 19 not out from 28 balls as India won the game by three wickets with five balls to spare.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) medium pacer Deepak Chahar, who was among the prominent names to test positive for Coronavirus last week, on Tuesday, confirmed that he has ‘recovered’ and is keen to be back in action. In a video posted on CSK’s Twitter handle from his hotel room in Dubai, Chahar said, “Thank you so much for your lovely wishes and prayers. I have recovered well and hopefully will be in action soon.”
Deepak Chahar has been selected to replace an injured Jasprit Bumrah for these T20s vs England. As such, Aakash Chopra has an interesting anecdote to share regarding Chahar and former India coach Chappell.
