Haryana leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been a good find over the last 18 months. He did a great job in the IPL which fast tracked his progress into the limited overs squad for India. Currently, with the Men in Blue playing an ODI series in Sri Lanka, Chahal recently made waves for commenting on a picture of a lady on Instagram.
The mysterious aspect of this comment is that the 27-year old does not follow the account of this particular lady but that he left a comment on her picture; there is definitely something in the air. The lady – Tanishka Kapoor – replied back to the leg-spinner’s comment. Interestingly, there wasn’t a single picture of Tanishka and Chahal available on the former’s Instagram account.
On the cricketing front, Chahal made headlines when he made history by picking a 6-wicket haul in a T20 against England. His 6/25 is the best bowling analysis by an Indian bowler in T20 internationals. An impressive season for the RCB coupled with India’s search for a wrist spinner for the 2019 World Cup in England allowed Chahal to come back into the ODI fold after playing 3 ODIs in Zimbabwe in 2016. He has managed to start in both the games and has returned with 2 wicket hauls in both games while conceding runs at 5.15.

Chahal is also a national level Chess player, who has represented India at the junior level. No wonder he is quick to pick the minds of the batsmen and plan their dismissal. As things stand, Chahal is very much in the scheme of things for the World Cup in England. He needs to keep performing in whatever opportunities he is being presented with. Playing under Virat Kohli, who is his skipper at RCB in the IPL as well, gives the Haryana bowler a lot of confidence.
