T20 World Cup: Former India player Aakash Chopra said that Yuzvendra Chahal will definitely be a part of the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. He also expressed shock at his exclusion from the team in the last edition of the tournament as well. However, Chahal was overlooked as Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy picked ahead of him. But, he returned with a bang post that tournament and has almost sealed his place for the upcoming edition to be played in Australia later this year as well. If you are searching for the best betting sites in India, you are in the ideal place!

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra opened up on the spin-bowling options the selectors have for the mega event. He also said that Yuzvendra Chahal has given consistent performances since his return to the Indian team as well.

He said: “Let’s start with Yuzi Chahal. His name should have one-hundred percent been there in the last World Cup as well. It was not there, you were surprised, I was also surprised. It was shocking for me. As soon as we lost the World Cup, we said that it is necessary to play Yuzi Chahal. He has picked up 16 wickets in the 13 matches he has played since then in T20 internationals, an average of 18 and an economy of 7.1, which means he has been very very good.”

However, Chahal has picked up 10 wickets in the last five T20Is. The experienced bowler, however, was rested for the recently concluded T20I series against the West Indies but he is back in the 15-member Indian squad for the upcoming Asia Cup as well. Meanwhile, the veteran believes that Chahal is the confirmed pick on the Indian side for the T20 World Cup.

Chopra continued: “Yuzi is a wicket-taker, no doubt. These were international numbers. IPL numbers, the Purple Cap numbers – 27 wickets in 17 matches at an average of 19, an economy of 7.7 and a strike rate of 15. He picked up a five-wicket haul and a hat-trick as well. He is the No. 1 genuine wicket-taker that you have. In my opinion, when you play a spinner, he can have two roles – one is economical if your fast bowlers are wicket-takers else you want your spinners to control the middle overs and pick up wickets. The guy is definitely going to Australia, there is no debating that.”

Notably, Yuzvendra Chahal has scalped four wickets in the three T20Is he has played in Australia. This also includes his best of 3/25, when he came to the team as a concussion substitute for Ravindra Jadeja in the first T20I against Australia in Canberra in December 2020 as well.
