Leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s performance has been going bad for some time now. He has been out of Team India’s playing-11. But he believes that his performance has not declined. He has been able to take only 4 wickets in the last 5 international matches.
New Delhi. During the T20 series against England, Rahul Chahar got a chance in the last two matches in place of Yuzvendra Chahal. Chahal has not been able to perform well in international matches for some time now. Because of this they are getting in and out of the team. But he believes that his performance has not declined. Team India has to play ODI and T20 series in Sri Lanka in July. Chahal can be selected for the tour.
Yuzvendra Chahal told Times of India, ‘I don’t think I am in bad form. I’ve been playing for a long time. I am bowling in IPL also. You can’t take wickets in every match. He said that if you do not get a wicket in some matches, it does not mean that your performance has declined. In T20, you need to bowl with control. We have to stop the runs. Because of this it is difficult to bowl in T20.
Could take only three wickets in three matches
Yuzvendra Chahal could take only 3 wickets in three matches of the T20 series against England in March. Not only this, he gave runs in almost every over with an economy of 10 runs. In the last 13 T20 Internationals, he has been able to take only 10 wickets. On the other hand, if we talk about the last two ODIs, Chahal gave runs with an economy of more than 8 and could take only one wicket. He has taken 92 wickets in 54 matches of ODIs. Apart from this, 62 wickets have been taken in 48 T20s.Same problem with batsmen
Yuzvendra Chahal said that I have worked hard to reach here. People are used to seeing me take wickets. I have impressed my fans by taking wickets. Obviously, when I don’t take wickets, they will be disappointed and there will be comparisons. He said that there is no shortcoming in my form. This happens with batsmen also when they are not able to score runs in 4-5 matches.
