Chahar praises his performance for the pitch and atmosphere , saying “The atmosphere was pretty good, I tried to swing the ball as the weather was conducive for doing so, also tried to bowl around the full length area because of the moisture. The wicket was good and so was the weather. I assessed the conditions and I bowled more in-swingers than out-swingers. It was difficult to play against the ball coming into the batsman as compared to the one going away. I usually bowl with old balls in nets, that’s how I prepare myself. When the ball is swinging, I don’t use many variations. I was assessing the conditions on the first ball of every over.”
Krunal pandya got the man of the series award and Deepak chahar got man of the match award.
