Speaking about his success story, former India Sunil Gavaskar said that Varun's story reminds everyone that with hard work, anything can be achieved. "It does put a smile on my face (his story). It just tells you dreams do come true. He had given up and again restarted, he wanted to become a fast bowler. Through all those things, you must believe in yourself and your dreams come true," Gavaskar said.

"Chakravarthy is there not just for his five-for but the way he has bowled throughout the entire tournament. He has not given so many runs, he has picked up wickets at crucial times in the middle overs. He has not allowed the batsmen to settle down against him at all," Gavaskar said.

"Clearly, reward for some fine performances in the IPL."
