I Bowled 7 Overs On The Trot, My Fitness Is Okay: Deepak Chahar
Talking about the game Chahar said, “If you get 3-4 wickets of the opposition early, then it is difficult for any team to win the game from there. Batters have to play extra-ordinary innings from there to set an extra-ordinary target.
Every time you make a comeback, it is important for any player to score runs, and take wickets. I was out with an injury for almost six months so I was looking for an opportunity to come and perform. I knew I will be making my comeback in this series, I played all the practice games, and I was bowling more than six overs. The day I started bowling, the first session I bowled was six overs,” he added in the post-match press conference.
“The selection for the T20 World Cup is not in my control, I do not know whether I will be selected or not. But skill-wise, I have worked really hard. Today, I bowled okay, I bowled seven overs on the trot, so my fitness is also okay.” he said when questioned about the T20 World Cup in Australia.
