Watch: Deepak Chahar abuses Mohammed Siraj as he concedes a six after stepping on boundary
Deepak Chahar’s last over went for a massive 24 runs that also included an error from Mohammed Siraj which cost the team six runs. Off the penultimate ball of the over, David Miller pulled a short ball from Chahar into deep square leg only to find Siraj.

He did well to catch the ball but Siraj backpedaled after taking the catch only for his back foot to crash into the boundary line. Clearly, the bowler and the skipper Rohit Sharma weren’t impressed with the efforts. Perhaps, Chahar was so frustrated that he was spotted abusing Siraj for the mistake.
On the first ball of Deepak Chahar’s final over of the match, Rilee Rossouw completed his century with a single. On the next ball, the Indian pacer cleaned up young batter Tristan Stubbs and the third delivery of the over to David Miller was a dot ball. Then, Deepak Chahar bowled a no-ball and got smashed for three consecutive sixes by Miller on the next three deliveries.
Notably, on the 5th delivery of the over, Chahar bowled a 123kmph length ball to Miller and the Proteas batter heaved it off the strong bottom hand. Fielder Mohammed Siraj grabbed the catch at the deep square leg, but there was an error in judgement from the fielder as he backpedalled and stepped onto the advertising cushions with the ball in his hand.
