Following Chahar’s exploits for India, where he took two wickets and built a calm partnership with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, former Indian pacesetter Venkatesh Prasad took to Twitter to beat Greg Chappell. He insisted that Chahar was rejected by the Australian only because of his height and added that he won the match for the country, because of his secondary abilities.

“Moral of the story: Believe in yourself and don’t take foreign coaches too seriously,” he added in the tweet.

“There are exceptions, of course, but with such amazing talent in India, it’s time for teams and franchisees to consider having as many Indian coaches and mentors as possible,” Prasad noted.
