A young Indian cricket team, led by Shikhar Dhawan, proved their worth by beating Sri Lanka in the second ODI by three wickets in Colombo on Tuesday. While pursuing the 276-point goal set by Sri Lanka, India found an unexpected hero in Deepak Chahar, who stole the show with his brilliant strike at batting and guided the team to a decisive victory in the jaws of defeat. When he came on, India was 160 for 6. Chahar, who went undefeated on 69 out of 82 deliveries, shared a video on Twitter, claiming it was a moment he “will never forget. “.

Sharing a short clip from Tuesday’s game, Chahar wrote: “Will never forget this moment #teamindia #dream. Thank you so much for your wishes means a lot #keepsupporting.”
In the footage, Chahar could be seen scoring the winning points for India as he smashed Kasun Rajitha for a four on the first ball of the 50th.
Chahar’s post quickly created a buzz, with fans praising the 28-year-old for his winning innings.
“I think Deepak Chahar solved India’s hit depth in lower order,” one user said.
Another user credited the three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for Chahar’s batting prowess.
“Class Man CSK Product”, read the comment. The user also used fire and two red heart emojis.
“Brilliant batting bhaiya,” wrote another follower with two smiling faces, heart eyes and fiery emojis.
Another cricketer enthusiast said Chahar went from being a couture pitcher to being an all-rounder after his winning stroke. “Maje aa gye. …. ab to pakke bowler se allrounder ho gye ho,” the user wrote.
In a previous post on Tuesday night, Chahar shared another photo that was taken right after hitting the winning points. He captioned the post, “We’re playing for these moments,” and added the hashtag “proud.”
On Tuesday, over half centuries of Avishka Fernando (50 runs on 71 balls) and Asalanka (65 runs on 68 balls), Sri Lanka recorded 275 runs for the loss of nine wickets. Chamika Karunaratne made a valuable contribution of 44 runs on 33 balls.
