Following India’s 10-wicket win, Deepak Chahar talked about his performance and by his own admission, he started where he left off as he finished with a spell of 3 for 27 in 7 overs. He said:

“That [World Cup selection] is not in my hands. Skill-wise, though, I have worked really hard,”

He added: “There I can say I have probably started where I had left off. After the first over [when I had the run-up issue], rest whatever I bowled, I was happy. It was a seven-over spell, so the fitness is good.”

Chahar revealed that the plan was to bowl fuller-length deliveries. He said:

“My plan remains simple when the ball is swinging try to bowl fuller length and take wickets. If the ball isn’t swinging, then there is a plan ‘B’ or ‘C’. Today, it was swinging till the seventh over that I was bowling. So it was simple — bowl a fuller length and mix the swing and confuse the batter,”
