Haryana leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is coming from a decent limited overs series in Sri Lanka. Chahal was chosen ahead of Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja for the Sri Lanka series but the selection was widely thought of an experiment against a depleted Sri Lanka side. But the selectors stunned everyone by including Chahal for the first 3 ODIs against Australia.
The 27-year old is reaping benefits of a sound IPL performance for a couple of seasons where he turns up for RCB. After the failures of regular spinners Ashwin and Jadeja in the ODI format, the Indian think-tank is looking at wrist spinning options and the selectors have recognized Chahal to be one of them who may fit the bill. The leg-spinner has done well so far, collecting 11 wickets from 7 ODIs at 24.09. He is currently embracing for a tough series against the Steven Smith-led side.
Zampa stumps Chahal
Recently, in a fan interaction session, Chahal was live on Instagram and answered questions from his fans. There was a user who asked a different genre question. The user was none other than Adam Zampa, who is a part of both ODI and T20 squads. Zampa, rather cheekily, asked Chahal to help him in setting a field to Virat Kohli.
Being a fellow leg-spinner Zampa thought of getting some insights from Chahal, who has bowled at Kohli umpteen number of occasions during his time at the RCB. Though this was a sarcastic question, Zampa must be truly wondering how to bowl at the Indian skipper, who is in the form of his life as far as limited overs cricket is concerned.
The Australians will take on India in a 5-match ODI series followed by a best of 3 T20s. Zampa will be a key bowler in Smith’s ranks and will be looking to exploit his IPL experience during the course of the series.
