Chahar breaks bowling record as India seal Bangladesh series win

India

Deepak Chahar recorded the best bowling figures in T20 international history as India sealed a 2-1 series win against Bangladesh.

Seamer Chahar took an incredible six for seven – including a hat-trick – from 3.2 overs as India dismissed Bangladesh for 144 to win by 30 runs in Nagpur.

Shreyas Iyer’s T20I best of 62 from 33 balls and KL Rahul’s 35-ball 52 helped India to 174 for five after being put in.

Bangladesh were soon in trouble at 12 for two as Chahar struck with successive deliveries in the third over.

Opener Mohammad Naim made 81 from 48 balls, but Chahar and Shivam Dube (three for 30) made constant in-roads in to the Bangladesh innings.

Chahar wrapped up victory with a hat-trick in the final over as Bangladesh were bowled out with four balls of their innings remaining.

Having dismissed Shafiul Islam with final ball of his previous over, Chahar removed Mustafizur Rahman and Aminul Islam to secure the man of the match and man of the series awards.
