Australian legend and former India coach Greg Chappell during his stint with Rajasthan Cricket Academy (RCA) has told Deepak Chahar to quit cricket and look for some other job, said former India pacer, Venkatesh Prasad.

Prasad revealed it on Twitter, after the 28-year-old Chahar played a match-winning knock in the series-clinching second ODI win against Sri Lanka. Chahar, a right-arm medium pacer, coming out at number eight, hit a 82-ball 69 not out to help India notch up a three-wicket win in the second ODI against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.

"Deepak Chahar was rejected by Greg Chappell at RCA for his height and told to look at a different occupation. And he single handedly won a match with not even his primary skills," Prasad tweeted.
