India beat New Zealand team in second T20
India tied 1-1 in the 3-match series
New Delhi. The Indian cricket team is currently playing in the T20 series against New Zealand. Team India made a tremendous comeback after losing the first match and equalized by registering a win in a very exciting match that lasted till the last over. Team India’s bowling was extremely lethal in this match and restricted New Zealand to just 99 runs. In response, India achieved the target by losing 4 wickets in 19.5 overs and achieved a 1-1 draw. In this match, captain Hardik Pandya and coach Rahul Dravid gave a chance to a player whose career was in danger.
The Indian team is currently going through a phase of change. Experienced players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been kept out of the T20 team by the selectors. In such a situation, a player whose number was about to be announced saved his place on time. Team India’s 6 bowlers took 1-1 wickets in the second T20 against New Zealand, but the performance of one bowler was most commendable.
Chahal saved his career
For the last few matches, there is no sharpness in the bowling of spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. He has failed to make an impact in both ODI and T20 formats. In the series against Sri Lanka, he scored more runs and was also seen craving for wickets. He got a chance in the second T20 against New Zealand and he bowled 1 medal in 2 overs and took 1 wicket for 4 runs. This performance is very impressive.
Chahal’s bad form became a problem
Talking about the last 15 T20 matches, his performance has been average. Returned without taking a wicket in 5 matches, while in 6 matches he took only 1-1 wickets. On an average, even if a bowler takes two wickets, it is considered useful. The performance has been similar in ODIs as well. In the last 15 matches, he has taken 1-1 wickets in 5 matches while the account of wickets in 3 matches has remained empty.
