“My heartbeat was touching 200 in the last over. I wanted them to make it to the longer part of the ground. The ball was slipping a lot and my best bet was the longer side and that was my only hope. On my first over I went for 12 runs, Markram hit me for 2 fours and that’s how the game goes, Last year I was bowling around 85kmph, I was trying out many things and I realized that I needed to work on my revolutions and I did work on it,” said Varun Chakravarthy in the post-match ceremony.
