Easy to bowl in death overs: Deepak Chahar
It was no different against in the at Mohali too. Chahar bowled three overs up front giving away just 19 runs and took the wicket of Reeza Hendricks and then bowled the in the death - 18th over - and removed the well-set , conceding only three runs. He finished with figures of 4-0-22-2, as India restricted South Africa to 149, which was eventually chased down with ease - riding on skipper 's unbeaten 72 off 52 balls - by seven wickets.
Yet, it is the death overs that Chahar finds 'easy' to bowl.
"Whenever you do good in a match, you get confidence. And the confidence I got from IPL, it benefitted me," said Chahar, who had a stellar IPL 2019 returning 22 wickets at 21.90. His economy was also impressive at 7.47 and his strike-rate with the ball was an enviable 17.59.

With India set on course for building the squad for the T20 World Cup, Chahar's exploits so far makes him a prime candidate, but the 27-year-old is not thinking too far ahead of himself.
"It is still one year for the World Cup and I do not think far too ahead. I take every match as my last match. At this time, Indian cricket is at the top and if you want to find a spot, you will have to do very good and that too, in every match because there is a lot of competition," he added..
