Deepak Chahar set a new. world record -- becoming the first Indian to bag a hat trick and returning with best ever bowling by any cricketer in history with a six-wicket haul for just 7 runs in 3.2 overs. Chahar was easily the man of the match as India won the 3rd and final T20 match against Bangladesh by 30 runs and the series 2-1.
"I never thought this would happen. I am extremely happy. It happened by the grace of God. I only worked hard. My plan and team's was to bowl at the crucial over. So I bowled when the team really required. I am really thankful to the team and captain to trust in me," Chahar said during the post-match presentation while receiving his man of the match and man of the series awards.
Captain Rohit Sharma said this was India's best team going into the World Cup next year.
With lots of variations-- slow leg cutters, yorkers, faster ones, and outswingers -- Chahar foxed and bamboozled the Bangladeshi well-set batsmen to clinch the match and the series. Chahar was also the highest wicket-taker of the series with 8 wickets and was quite economical throughout the series. Chahar was impressive with his bowling in West Indies series as well with his pace, tight line and variations. India has well and truly found its strike bowler for the next year's World Cup T20 in Australia.
