Chahar justified Dravid’s faith in him: Bhuvi

Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Colombo: India vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar said it was coach Rahul Dravid’s decision to send Deepak Chahar up the order and he justified it with an “amazing” knock to guide the team to a stunning three-wicket win against Sri Lanka in the second ODI. Chahar hit an unbeaten 69 and stitched an unbroken match-winning 84-run stand with Bhuvneshwar (19) for the eighth wicket. “The only plan was to play till the last, and the way Deepak batted was amazing,” Bhuvneshwar said. “Dravid knew that he can bat so that was Dravid’s call. And the way he batted, Chahar proved it right,” he added. Chasing 276 to win, India was teetering at 193/7 but Chahar and Bhuvneshwar helped India record a memorable win. PTI
