In the match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders, if a player decided the difference between the win and the loss, it was the same.
Mumbai Indians players celebrating victory
Rahul Chahar. This is the name that recently entered international cricket through the T20 series against England. Although he took three wickets in these three matches for the Indian team, he also looted runs. But less than the identity of Rahul Chahar for Team India, much more than his importance is for the Indian Premier League’s most successful team Mumbai Indians. If Mumbai’s team is a record five-time IPL champion today, then Rahul Chahar’s contribution to it cannot be underestimated. If not sure, then look at the match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday in the current season of IPL. In which Rahul Chahar took 4 wickets for 27 runs in 4 overs. But Rahul Chahar’s identity is older than Mumbai Indians. Explains how.
Actually, the incident is when Diggaj was the coach of Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid under-19 team. Then the team was being selected for the Under 19 World Cup. According to the Times of India report, former Indian fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad, then the chairman of the three-member junior selection committee, had an argument with BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary. The debate was about why leg-spinner Rahul Chahar was not included in the Under-19 World Cup squad. Prasad was keeping this matter.
Rahul and Roy’s reverse IPL career
According to the report, not only Prasad but Rahul Dravid also wanted to select Chahar from the selectors, but it did not happen. That is because the player in whose place Chahar could have been included was the friendly left-arm spinner of Jharkhand Roy. Interestingly, Amitabh Chaudhary himself is also from Jharkhand. In such a situation, Rahul Chahar did not get a place and Roy became a part of the Under-19 World Cup team. But the wheel of time turned around and Chahar became a part of Mumbai Indians, the most successful team in the Indian Premier League. And the amazing thing is that Suchit Roy is sitting on the bench of Mumbai Indians. Roy has played only one IPL match for Mumbai. He got one wicket in this match of 2019. At the same time, Rahul Chahar has taken 34 wickets in 33 matches for Mumbai in 4 seasons so far.
