New Delhi. Five spinners have been found in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, but leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s card was cut. Chahal’s selection came as a surprise to many as he is the leading wicket-taker for India in T20 Internationals. Apart from this, Virat Kohli also likes Chahal very much. As a leg-spinner, Rahul Chahar managed to get a place in the 15-man team of India. Chahar plays for Mumbai Indians in the IPL under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. Now a week after the team was selected, Chahal has targeted the selectors through a tweet.
After the team was selected, Chief Selector Chetan Sharma had said that the selectors considered Rahul Chahar a better option as the main leg-spinner of the team. He had said, “We needed a leg-spinner who could bowl at high speed. Recently we saw Chahar bowling with good pace. Our thinking was that we need a spinner who can get good grip from the pitch with fast pace. We thought a lot on the names of Chahal and Rahul and finally there was a consensus among all about Rahul.
Apart from Chetan Sharma, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra also believes that fast spinners can make an impact on UAE pitches. IPL and T20 World Cup are to be played in UAE only. Aakash Chopra has given 4 main advice to IPL teams by doing an analysis based on the first 30 matches of IPL 2020, on which Chahal gave a funny answer.
Chopra wrote on Twitter, “Few things out from the first 30 matches of IPL 2020, looks like most of the things will be the same this time too. 1. Win the toss and bat first, 2. Choose fast bowlers over medium pace bowlers, 3. Be careful in the powerplay overs, 4. Fast spinners can make an impact. agree?” Chahal, replying to Chopra’s tweet, wrote, ‘Tez spinners brother?’ which became the subject of discussion.
