Walking in with confidence, Deepak played a fine inning and overturned the game for team India but the young man couldn’t finish and got out.

Deepak Chahar looked disheartened as he walked back before finishing the chase and with Chahal and Prasidh left, fans lost hope. Deepak was witnessed getting emotional as tears rolled down. Deepak could have won the match for team India which would have avoided at least the humiliation of getting whitewashed by the Proteas.
