Indian pacer Deepak Chahar is in no mood to stop himself. The right-arm pacer is becoming more and more powerful in limited-overs cricket, especially in the death overs. On Thursday (14th November), once again Chahar dismissed three opposition batsmen in the final over of that innings, including two back-to-back wickets.
The 27-year-old Deepak Chahar is currently in the lethal form with the ball in hand. Just four days ago, Chahar created history by taking a hat-trick and registering the best ever bowling figures in T20I history. It was the match against Bangladesh in Nagpur T20I, where Chahar finished that game by claiming a hat-trick and managed the bowling figures of 3.2-0-7-6.
Inside the 48 hours of that successful bowling performance, he just missed another hat-trick in the domestic T20 tournament (Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019/20). It was the rain-interrupted 13-over per side match against Vidarbha where he had the bowling figures of 3-0-18-4. In that game, he took four wickets in the final over, including three wickets in three successive legal balls.
Now, Deepak Chahar again roared with the ball in hand. On Thursday, when he was leading Rajasthan against Uttar Pradesh in the Group B encounter of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019/20, he was very expensive with the ball but still shined in the final over of the game.
Deepak Chahar had the bowling figures of 4-0-46-3
After winning the toss, Deepak Chahar decided to field first. In his first three overs of the match, Chahar failed to open his wicket column. But, in the last over of that innings, he showed his familiar quality. The right-arm pacer took three wickets in that final over, including two in successive deliveries.
In that final over of that innings, Deepak Chahar first dismissed Mohsin Khan (1) on the first ball of that over. On the third ball of that over, Chahar dismissed Shanu Saini for a golden duck. Then, he dismissed Shubham Chaubey (21) on the next ball of that over. All three batsmen were caught out.
On his hat-trick ball, Deepak Chahar conceded a four. He conceded another four on the final ball of that over.
At the end of that innings, Chahar was very expensive as he managed the bowling figures of 4-0-46-3. They restricted Uttar Pradesh to 164/9 (20 overs). Among the Uttar Pradesh batsman, Rinku Singh (50) hit a half-century.
