Team India registered a series-clinching three-wicket win over Sri Lanka by defeating them in the second ODI match on Tuesday. Riding on the stellar performance by Deepak Chahar, the Indian cricket team led by Shikhar Dhawan helped his team register a memorable win.
Sri Lanka scored 275 for nine after opting to bat first. Now while chasing the target of 276 for a win, the top-order of the Indian squad failed to fire but a middle and lower order resurrection saw the team crossing the finishing line. However, it was the performance of Deepak Chahar that has gained all the attention.

Deepak turned out to be the hero of the game as he soaked in all the pressure and kept his cool and played a match-winning knock of 69 runs to help India seal the series with a match to go.
Deepak played brilliant shots, during his knock as he formed an exceptional partnership of 84-runs with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Despite the run rate going above six at one stage during the innings, both the cricketers maintained their calm.
Both Bhuvi and Chahar smashed the spinners and attack the pacers of Sri Lanka, who eventually crumbled under pressure.
Meanwhile, as soon as India won the 2nd ODI, social media was already flooded with amazing reactions from the netizens on the stunning performance of Chahar. He has been receiving praises from all corners of the cricketing fraternity. There are many who are coming up with hilarious memes and jokes while reacting to the stunning performance of Deepak.

Deepak Chahar showed today he is a sharp and smart fighter. He is mentally strong and very entertaining – he brings a bit of mohalla cricket to the international field. Playing with the world's best finisher Dhoni at CSK also helps. #SLvIND pic.twitter.com/2bFuyvZRE1

At 193/7, few would have given India a chance, but Deepak Chahar and Bhuvi have pulled off a remarkable win.
Good contributions from SuryaKumar Yadav and Krunal and a win to cherish. #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/UKHrKOKnLV

Deepak Chahar has learned a thing or two from his time at CSK. This is a knock Dhoni would be immensely proud off! #SLvIND
