Oval Test was my last chance - Chandrasekhar

In the Hindu, Bhagwath Chandrasekhar tells KC Vijaya Kumar about how things fell in place for him during his 6 for 38 spell at the Oval in 1971.

“I got wickets at Lord's, the second match was marred by rain and when we got to The Oval, I knew I had to perform really well. In a way it was my last chance. I got two wickets in the first innings and I had to strike in the second innings to help India win. I gave my heart and soul in that stint,” Chandrasekhar said.
