Ravi Shastri said 'get ready, you can receive a call if there is an injury': Deepak Chahar
NEW DELHI: Deepak Chahar He was packing for his flight back to India in his hotel room after he finished his task of being a bowler for the Indian team in the current ICC World Cup. Before leaving, he met everyone, including the coach. Ravi Shastri .
I met everyone before I left. Ravi praised me, sir. He praised me and said he had done a great job. He also said: get ready, you can get a call if there is an injury, Chahar told Timesofindia. com in an exclusive interview.
Chahar along with Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini and Avesh Khan were selected as net bowlers for the Indian cricket team during the World Cup.
The Indian selectors gave me a great duty. They considered me because of my ability to swing the ball and the experience of having already played in England, said Chahar, who has represented India in a T20I so far.
I was asked to point out the best Indians and offer them swingers and out-swingers. Our superior is exceptionally talented. Rohit (Sharma) bhai, Virat (Kohli) will perform very well in England. They played swing bowling. Really good, said Chahar.
I managed most of the deliveries to Virat following the instructions of the team management. He had answers for every delivery he received, he said.
I always enjoy bowling in English. I was aware of the conditions, so it was easy for me to adapt quickly to them. I also enjoyed this time, said Chahar.
Chahar also played Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni during the net sessions.
I threw (Hardik) Pandya and Mahi bhai (Dhoni) into the networks. Dhoni plays swing easily. He does not look at bowlers when they bow. Therefore, it is difficult to know what is going on in your mind, Chahar said.
Just before India's opening game of the four-year event against South Africa, the team management decided to send two of the four net networks: Chahar and Avesh to India and keep Navdeep and Khaleel for the rest of the tournament.
It was previously decided that both (Chahar and Avesh) will return to India. Our tickets were already reserved. The reason is that it is a World Cup and ICC takes care of everything. Therefore, it was decided that we will complete our assigned duty and return, said the bowler.
