How Yuzvendra Chahal Can Be The Key Player For India In T20 World Cup?

Yuzvendra Chahal, a leg-spinner, has made a mark in the Indian Premier League (IPL), showcasing his skills for the Rajasthan Royals. Despite bowling in tough situations during the death overs, he has managed to take 13 wickets in nine IPL games, boasting an economy rate of 9.00.

Notably, he is the only spinner in the top 10 wicket-takers list this season. His IPL journey since 2013 has been impressive, amassing 200 wickets in 154 games, making him a standout bowler.

In the last five seasons, his performances have been consistently remarkable, culminating in winning the Purple Cap in 2022 as the highest wicket-taker. However, despite his IPL success, Chahal has yet to secure a spot in India’s T20 World Cup matches. In previous editions, other spinners like Rahul Chahar, R Ashwin, and Axar Patel were preferred over him. This has led to speculation about his role in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Especially considering his absence from recent T20I squads and the selectors’ inclination towards other spin options like Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, and Axar Patel. Chahal’s potential inclusion could be a strategic move by captain Rohit Sharma, especially given India’s underwhelming performances in the last two T20 World Cups.

With the majority of the current squad having been part of the previous editions, there is a pressing need for fresh strategies and impactful players.

Chahal’s Potential Impact: ‘Kul-Cha’ Partnership Revival and Bowling Mastery

Chahal’s selection could also revive the famed ‘Kul-Cha’ pairing, known for their wicket-taking abilities, albeit at the expense of batting depth. Chahal’s success in the IPL can be attributed to his mastery of various deliveries, making it challenging for batsmen to predict his next move.

His ability to perform under pressure adds value to his candidacy for the T20 World Cup squad. However, concerns remain about his limitations as a batter, which might influence the team management’s decision.
