CSK Pacer Deepak Chahar picks 6-wicket haul for Rajasthan in Vijay Hazare Trophy

The Vijay Hazare Trophy, India’s premier domestic 50-over competition, continues to serve as a platform for cricketers eyeing national team contention, and Deepak Chahar, in particular, has seized the spotlight with a remarkable performance. Bowling first against Gujarat in the Group D match, the Rajasthan pacer dismantled the opposition lineup, restricting them to a mere 128 runs. Khaleel Ahmed initiated the breakthrough with an early wicket, setting the stage for Chahar’s impactful spell.

Chahar’s pivotal moment came with the dismissal of Priyank Panchal, Gujarat’s key batsman. He continued his onslaught by removing skipper Chitan Gaja for a duck and later cleaning up the tail. The final figures for Chahar were an impressive 6/41, showcasing his ability to dismantle the batting order with precision.

This stellar performance by Chahar comes at a crucial time, as he aims to secure a spot in the Indian team, particularly with an eye on the upcoming T20 World Cup. Having faced injury setbacks since his last international appearance in December last year, Chahar’s consistent displays in tournaments like the Vijay Hazare Trophy could pave the way for a triumphant comeback.

Simultaneously, in another enthralling match, Padikkal showcased a batting spectacle against Uttarakhand. Despite losing two early wickets, Padikkal’s left-handed finesse came to the fore. With unwavering determination, he anchored the innings, crafting an exquisite 117-run innings off 122 deliveries. His stellar knock featured 13 boundaries and five towering sixes, highlighting a perfect blend of elegance and power in his strokeplay. Furthermore, Padikkal’s innings propelled him beyond the milestone of 1,500 List A runs, solidifying his stature in the cricketing arena.

In the Kerala vs Mumbai encounter, skipper Samson achieved a 70-ball fifty. Following a disappointing Syed Mushtaq Ali season, Samson aims for a strong showing in the one-day tournament to reestablish himself, with a notable goal of a 500-600 run IPL season. Kerala posted a total of 231 before being bowled out, with Mohit Awasthi securing a 4-wicket haul.

In the Group E clash, Sai Sudharsan’s brilliant 125 powered Tamil Nadu to a score of 296 against Goa. Meanwhile, Harshal Patel-led Haryana showcased a dominant performance, bowling out Bihar for a mere 112 in the Group C encounter.
