New Delhi: Hardik Pandya is battling very poor form before the T20 World Cup. Hardik Pandya is neither able to score runs nor take wickets with the bat. In such a situation, there is a player who can replace Hardik Pandya in the T20 World Cup. That player is none other than Deepak Chahar, who has made a splash with his stellar performance on the Sri Lanka tour.
Has the ability to win matches on his own
Deepak Chahar has the ability to single-handedly win the match for India with the ball as well as with the bat. In the second ODI against Sri Lanka, he single-handedly scored 69 runs to give India a seemingly impossible victory. India could have lost the ODI series if they did not win that match. Deepak Chahar also played an important role in helping India win the first T20 match against Sri Lanka.
Deepak Chahar brings charismatic victory
In the first T20 match, Deepak Chahar changed the course of the match in the 16th over of Sri Lanka’s innings. Deepak Chahar dismissed Sri Lankan batsmen Charit Asalanka and Hasaranga in the same over. Chahar’s two wickets in this over overturned the result of the match. At one time it seemed that Sri Lanka would win this match, because Charit Asalanka was playing 44 runs in 26 balls with the help of three sixes and as many fours. If Charit Asalanka had stayed on the crease, India’s defeat was certain, but it did not happen. Deepak Chahar took 2 wickets for 24 runs in 3 overs in this match.
Deepak can replace Hardik in T20 World Cup
Given Hardik Pandya’s poor form in batting and bowling, Deepak Chahar can prove to be a better option. Deepak Chahar has the power to perform well with the ball and the bat. In bowling, Deepak Chahar is even better than Hardik Pandya, who also has swing. Deepak Chahar plays for Chennai Super Kings, the IPL team captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
