New Delhi: Deepak Chahar became the player of the match for winning the historic match for Team India. He said after the match that when we were bowling. Then there was a problem due to some drop catches. But then all went well. I also got two wickets. We restricted them to 270 which was a good score to chase. When I came out to bat, there was only one thing running through my mind. And when you start playing cricket and play for India you dream like this. There cannot be a better way for the country to win matches than this.
Deepak said that Rahul sir asked me to play all the balls. I have played a few innings for India A and they have faith in me and have always believed in me and that was a game changer. We have a great batting line-up and hopefully I won't get a chance to bat in the next matches. This is my first time in such a situation. We were playing ball by ball and when it came down to 50 I decided to hit the boundary and after that six it gave me momentum.
Let us tell you that due to Deepak, the Indian team was able to achieve its 93rd victory against Sri Lanka. This is India's best and overall performance against an ODI team. Deepak scored 69 runs in 82 balls with the help of seven fours and one six. At the same time, Bhuvneshwar Kumar scored 19 runs in 28 balls with the help of 2 fours and took the team to the threshold of victory.
