‘Deepak Chahar is not yet eliminated from the running for the World Cup’-Former India international provides an outside chance for Deepak Chahar

Aakash Chopra thinks that Deepak Chahar has not been eliminated from consideration for a position in India’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022 team.

In the inaugural one-day international match against Zimbabwe, which took place on August 18, Chahar finished with statistics of 3/27 in seven overs. With the aid of his spell, the visitors were able to restrict the home team to 189 runs. Then, Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill proceeded to string together an unbroken partnership of 192 runs, which ultimately contributed to the visitors’ stunning 10-wicket victory.

What did Aakash Chopra say about Deepak Chahar?

Chopra selected Chahar as his Player of the Match in a video that was uploaded to his channel on YouTube. He elaborated on his choice as follows:

“Deepak Chahar has to be my pick for Player of the Match since India annihilated their rivals, and there is no question in my mind that he deserves the honor. Deepak Chahar is not yet eliminated from the running for the World Cup, even though his name is not included for the Asia Cup because he is making a return here.”

Chopra emphasized the significance of the Zimbabwe series for the potential participation of the Chennai Super Kings seamer in the ICC World Cup. The former cricket player who is now a pundit said:

“Deepak sparkled, and everyone could feel that glow. After what seems like an eternity, he is finally going to be back. It felt like he was bowling within himself and not going all out at the beginning of the game. When seen through the lens of the World Cup, this series is being regarded as being of the utmost significance for Deepak Chahar.”

In addition, Chopra said that Chahar’s cause may benefit from Chahar’s success in one-day international cricket. He argued as follows:

“You may be wondering how the World Cup is related to this match, which consists of 50 overs, as the World Cup only has 20 overs. There is a relationship between the two events; for the last half year, he has not played cricket, but he is playing it now. If he turns in a strong performance, his name will be added to the list as well.”

The last time Chahar participated in a game of this kind was in February of this year. As a result of his injury, he was unable to play any part in the Indian Premier League 2022 or any other international matches, and he was only selected as a reserve for India’s Asia Cup team.

In the twenty Twenty20 Internationals that Chahar has participated in so far, he has taken 26 wickets. Because of his ability to contribute with the bat lower in the order, he has an advantage over the other potential candidates for a seam-bowling spot in India’s T20 World Cup team.
