Aakash Chopra On Yuzvendra Chahal Missing The Last Edition
Aakash Chopra On Yuzvendra Chahal Missing The Last Edition: At the 2017 Twenty20 World Cup, it is anticipated that Yuzvendra Chahal will take the helm of India’s spin assault.
Yuzvendra Chahal will very certainly be a member of the Indian side that competes in the Twenty20 World Cup in 2022, according to Aakash Chopra. The former cricket player turned commentator was taken aback by the decision not to include the leg-spinner in the Indian squad for the most recent iteration of the tournament.
The likes of Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy were selected ahead of Chahal for the Twenty20 World Cup that was held the previous year. Chahal was not selected. After that tournament, the crafty spinner had a successful comeback and is now in a strong position to keep his spot on the Indian team for the upcoming competition, which will be held in Australia at the end of this year.
Chopra pondered on the many spin-bowling alternatives the selectors have for the international competition in a video that was uploaded to his channel on YouTube.
The following are some of the things he had to say about Chahal:
Let’s begin with Yuzi Chahal, shall we? It is completely unacceptable that his name was not mentioned in connection with the most recent World Cup. You were astonished, as was I, to find that it was absent from the location. It came as a complete surprise to me.
Chopra mentioned that Chahal has been providing the Indian team with consistent performances ever since he has been back with the squad. The former Indian batter went into further detail, saying:
“As soon as we found out that we weren’t going to win the World Cup, we decided that it was essential to play Yuzi Chahal. Since then, he has participated in 13 T20 international matches. During those matches, he has collected 16 wickets, with an average of 18, and his economy rate has been 7.1. This indicates that he has been very, very good.
In the last five Twenty20 Internationals that Chahal has participated in, he has taken 10 wickets. The 32-year-old was given a break during the Twenty20 International series that was just finished off against the West Indies, but he has been included in the Indian team that will compete in the Asia Cup 2022.
In conclusion, Chopra expressed the opinion that Chahal is a lock to be selected for the Indian team to compete in the Twenty20 World Cup. The esteemed commentator offered his reasoning as follows:
“He is the most genuine wicket-taker that you have, and he is your number one option. If your fast bowlers are also wicket-takers, then you want your spinners to dominate the middle overs and pick up wickets. If your fast bowlers are not wicket-takers, then you want your spinners to be economical. My opinion is that when you play a spinner, he can have two responsibilities. There is no room for doubt in regard to the fact that the individual will travel to Australia.
In the three Twenty20 Internationals that Yuzvendra Chahal has participated in Down Under, he has taken four wickets. This includes a best of 3/25, which he achieved when he came in as a concussion substitution for Ravindra Jadeja in the first Twenty20 International that was played against Australia in Canberra in December of 2020.
