Yuzvendra Chahal was also seen battling for the wicket in the Asia Cup. In the first match against Pakistan, he gave 32 runs and did not get any wicket. In that match, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz had created problems for India for Pakistan. After that he was economical in the match against Hong Kong but did not get the wicket. In the Super-4 match against Pakistan, Chahal got one wicket but he spent 43 runs. In the match against Sri Lanka, he got India back in the match by taking three wickets. But he could not continue the form.
Massive smash against Australia
Yuzvendra Chahal bowled 3.2 overs in the first match of the T20 series against Australia. In this he spent 42 runs. He got a wicket in the last over, when the match was almost over. Chahal would have got a wicket in his very first over but he did not appeal against Cameron Green. Wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik also did not show interest. Green took the match away from India after scoring 61 off 30 balls. At the same time, India’s second spinner Axar Patel took 3 wickets. That too for just 17 runs.
Will you win the World Cup like this?
Yuzvendra Chahal is part of the team of T20 World Cup. He is also certain to play in the playing XI, as the team does not have any other leg-spinner. In such a situation, his form can increase the problem of team management. Ravi Bishnoi has done consistently well since his debut. He also took the wicket of Babar Azam for 26 runs in 4 overs against Pakistan in the Asia Cup. Even after this he was dropped from the team. In such a situation, Yuzvendra Chahal will have to find the rhythm soon. Otherwise Bishnoi is ready to take his place.
