After taking a hat-trick against Bangladesh on Sunday, Deepak Chahar narrowly missed out on another hat-trick, but claimed a four-wicket haul in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Turning out for Rajasthan, Chahar took three wickets in three consecutive legal deliveries but bowled a wide in between the dismissals against Vidarbha at the Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, Vidarbha was skittled out for a paltry 99 in 13 overs, thanks to the wrecker-in-chief Chahar.
