After the match, Chahar said, ‘There is no better way for the country to win the match. Rahul sir told me to play every ball. I played a few innings with India A (when Rahul Dravid was coach) and I think he trusted me. He told me you deserve to bat at No. 7, he trusted me. Hope I don’t have to bat in the upcoming matches. When the goal reached 50, I thought we could win the game. Before that I had to play every ball. After that I took a little risk.
