The best The advice was to believe in yourself. When I first played for CSK, the confidence he gave me was reflected in my performance. He is the number one captain. If he believes in you, you have to believe in yourself The confidence I got from playing for CSK was huge. It changed my career. The confidence and confidence that Mahi bhai gave me was the best.”

About his batting and his unbeaten 69 in ODIs against Sri Lanka in 2021, Chahar said, “When I started playing, I always wanted to be an all-rounder. I wanted to work on my bowling as well. It was the opportunity I was waiting for. Finally, I got that match. When I went to bat, I was thinking of giving India a win. In the first 20 balls, I didn’t score any runs, Only one or two runs.

“We had overs. I thought we had to play all the overs to win the match. What I thought was to get some bowlers. My whole thinking was to win matches because that was my dream. Every kid wants to play that. Kind of a shift.”
