New Delhi: Team India’s selectors cut leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s leaf from the T20 World Cup to be held in October-November this year. This decision of the selectors had created a storm in the cricket world, because Yuzvendra Chahal is considered to be India’s best T20 bowler. For the T20 World Cup, the selectors included Rahul Chahar by ousting Yuzvendra Chahal, but in the match played against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL on Sunday, the bowler’s pole was exposed.
Rahul Chahar’s pole exposed
Rahul Chahar did not get a single wicket in the IPL match played against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday. Rahul Chahar conceded 22 runs in 4 overs. During this he did not get a single wicket. Looking at the performance of Rahul Chahar, it did not seem that the opposition batsmen were having trouble playing him. If Rahul Chahar has a similar performance in the T20 World Cup as well, then he can sink Team India’s loot.
This argument was given on choosing Rahul Chahar in T20 World Cup
During the announcement of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, Chief Selector Chetan Sharma had said, ‘We wanted a leg-spinner in the team, who could throw the ball at high speed. Who can get good grip from the pitch with fast pace. In such a situation, we chose Rahul Chahar instead of Chahal. But the spinner whom the selectors chose in place of Yuzvendra Chahal in the T20 World Cup did not show any merit and the performance of Rahul Chahar was exposed.
Selectors had broken Chahal’s heart
Yuzvendra Chahal is considered one of the closest players of Team India captain Virat Kohli. In RCB too, both play together, so there is a good bonding between them, but despite this, the selectors showed Yuzvendra Chahal the way out of the T20 World Cup team. T20 World Cup 2021 is on the head and all the teams have started preparations for it. T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start from October 17.
Ravichandran Ashwin also got a chance
Spinners have been helping on UAE pitches and in such a situation, five specialist spinners have been selected in the team. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been selected for the T20 World Cup. Rahul Chahar, Axar Patel and Varun Chakraborty have also been rewarded for their good performances in the IPL.
