On Wednesday, the Indian pacer, Deepak Chahar won the ‘Moment of the Match’ award in India’s opening T20I against New Zealand in Jaipur. At the start of the 18th over of the Black Caps’ innings, opener Martin Guptill was at his ferocious best, having amassed 64 runs off a mere 40 balls. He started the over with a massive ‘no look’ six-off Chahar on the leg side.  The commentators were also left bemused as they said, “He is not even looking at the ball.” Thereafter, the Kiwis’ opener gave Chahar a ‘death stare’.

However, in the very next ball, Deepak Chahar got the wicket of Guptill. The latter went for a similar shot on the leg side but failed to time the ball well. The batter skied the ball and Shreyas Iyer took a sharp catch in the deep. Guptill was dismissed after scoring 70 off 42 with the help of three fours and four sixes.

Meanwhile, after getting his wicket, Chahar gave Guptill a cold look, giving him a send-off. It earned the Indian fast bowler prize money of INR 1 lakh. Overall, the pacer didn’t have a great day as he leaked 42 runs off four overs and was the most expensive bowler for India in the Jaipur T20I. 

After Chahar got the award, veteran Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has come up with a hilarious response. The latter said that he could’ve become a billionaire had the same award been there during his playing days.

Harbhajan Singh took to Twitter and wrote, “Knha tha yeh award pehle..Mai billionaire ho jaata What a award.” The Turbanator was a fiery cricketer during his playing days and he has never been known for holding himself back as far as expressing himself was concerned.

As far as the match in Jaipur was concerned, India won it by five wickets with two balls remaining. After restricting the Kiwis to 164 for six, the Men in Blue chased down 165 in 19.2 overs. Suryakumar Yadav, batting at No.3, played a blinder as he scored 62 off 40 with six fours and three sixes. Rohit Sharma also made a 36-ball 48.
