Saba Karim feels Yuzvendra Chahal can’t make India T20 WC squad despite impressive performances in IPL
India leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal could not find a place in the India T20 World Cup squad. Chahal was going through a lean patch in the buildup to the T20 World Cup and thus was ignored by the selectors who went in with the experienced duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja along with IPL stars Varun Chakravarthy and Rahul Chahar.

However, many fans and experts were not amused with Chahal being ignored for the World Cup and opined that the leg spinner should have been in the squad.
Having being left out, Chahal had a point to prove and he did that in style in the second leg of IPL 2021. The RCB spinner has emerged as the go-to man for Virat Kohli. Every time the skipper needs a wicket, he turns to Chahal and the leggie doesn’t disappoint. Chahal so far has taken 10 wickets in five games in UAE. Given his form, the call to include Chahal in the T20 World Cup squad is again on the rise.
However, former India cricketer Saba Karim feels selectors won’t include Chahal in the squad unless there is an injury. He added the players who have been selected are performing well and selectors won’t be keen on replacing them with Chahal.
“I think it’s too late now. People have been talking about making changes in the squad, but that can only happen if someone gets injured. You also have to see Rahul Chahar was performing very well when he got selected. We saw both of them (Chahal and Chahar) in Sri Lanka, and his performances there were definitely noteworthy, which is why he was picked by selectors,” Saba Karim said while speaking on the Khelneeti podcast on Youtube.

“Now, in the second half of the IPL, Chahal has shown great improvement in his performances, which is very good. But he will have to wait for a little. The players who have been selected, their form and performances will be seen before Chahal is given a chance again,” he added.
