It is like a dream come true for me. Taking the wickets of these two legends of the game is like a double hat-trick for me. I still cannot believe this has happened, I feel I am in some sort of a dream. I just cannot express how I feel. As a bowler, I cannot ask for anything more,” Chandila said.

The offie credited former India leg-spinner Narendra Hirwani for his success. “I was advised by Hirwani sir to stick to my line and length and vary my pace. He told me I am bowling to players of high calibre, but asked me to be confident in my approach.”
