After India’s win over South Africa in the second T20I on Wednesday, pacer Deepak Chahar revealed that he finds it easy to bowl in the death overs which actually restricted the opponents within a below-par.

“I find it easy to bowl death overs because, in the powerplay, you only get two fielders outside the circle. However, after the powerplay, you get five fielders outside. Therefore, I find it easy to bowl death overs,” Deepak Chahar said during a post-match press conference.

With this seven-wicket victory over South Africa in the second T20I at PCA Stadium in Punjab’s Mohali, India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. Chahar bowled four overs and took two wickets while giving away 22 runs. He also said playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) helped him to do well.

“Whenever you do good in a match, you get confidence. And the confidence I got from IPL, it benefitted me,” he said,

While he was asked about T20 World Cup 2020, he replied, “It is still one year for the World Cup and I do not think far too ahead. I take every match as my last match. At this time, Indian cricket is at the top and if you want to find a spot, you will have to do very good and that too, in every match because there is a lot of competition.”

India captain Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten 72 run to guide India defeat South African team. With this innings, he surpassed Rohit Sharma to become the highest T20I run-getter.

While praising Kohli, Chahar said, “I don’t know how Virat bhaiya (brother) manages to score these many runs and that too with such consistency. He is a next-level player.”

The third T20I between India and South Africa will take place on September 22 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
