Highest wicket-taker for India
However, the wrist spinner made a comeback after that and again presented his talent to the world in the IPL this year where he also won the Purple Cap with 27 wickets. 31-year-old Chahal is the highest wicket-taker for India in T20 Internationals and according to his recent performance, he is also a strong contender for a place in the T20 World Cup.
We missed the last world cup
Chahal took 6 wickets against South Africa in the recently concluded series. Bangar believes that not taking Chahal to the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year proved to be a bad thing for the Men in Blue. Talking on Star Sports, Bangar said, Chahal is such a player whom we missed in the last World Cup. He will definitely come into Australia as a trumpard and bring good success to the Indian team.
After Anil Kumble, Chahal is such a spinner
Bangar also says that after Anil Kumble, Chahal is the only spinner who has been consistently showing consistency for India. He said, “If it is about playing the longest time for India, then Anil Kumble has played as a leg-spinner. After that if any wrist spinner is able to play continuously for long time for Team India, then it is Yuzvendra Chahal. Huh.” Bangar also said that playing at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium proved to be good for Chahal as he played most of his matches here against his old franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Chahal became stronger by playing at Chinnaswamy Stadium
Says Bangar, “You need a big heart on this ground. You learn when you go for sixes and don’t be intimidated by your beats over and over then you understand how to bowl. Chahal keeps his seam position. He has been bowling at different lines and that has been his strength. He has improved his game a lot which includes bowling right-left-handed batsmen along the wide line. Things you can learn only when Chinnaswamy plays at the stadium.”
