“Can’t say if I will be selected or not”: Deepak Chahar on his T20 World Cup Selection


Share post:

Deepak Chahar talked about his future in the Indian cricket team for the upcoming T20 World Cup. He mentioned it wasn’t clear yet on his position on the selection. Chahar performed well in the first ODI against Zimbabwe on 18th August. He took three wickets and bowled with a great economy. Chahar was named as a player in the match where India defeated Zimbabwe by 10 wickets.

“I can’t say if I will be selected or not as that’s not in my hands but skill wise I have worked very hard. I think I have picked up from where I had left and today also barring the first two overs, I bowled well. I bowled seven overs at one go, which indicates that my fitness levels are okay.” Chahar stated during the post-match presentation.

“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.”

“I knew I will make my comeback in this series, which is an ODI series, so I started loading my body accordingly. The day I started bowling, I bowled six overs, and then when I played 2-3 practice games, I bowled the full quota of 10 overs.”

He also opened up about playing for India after a long layoff. Chahar revealed the road has been tough and said, “Difficulty was there. Because you are trying to regain your place in the side and the interim, people who played have also performed and consolidated their place. So in order to regain your spot, you have to put up a good performance. Obviously, pressure was there and I wanted to perform at the first opportunity because that’s all what a player can control.”
