The Mumbai Indians spinner Rahul Chahar has continuously impressed everybody with his performance. Notably, Rahul Chahar was not the first choice spinner of India in the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka. However, he got 3 opportunities to represent India and he performed well in all three. Cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra praised Rahul Chahar and compared him sensational spinner, Rashid Khan.

Notably, Rahul Chahar picked 3 wickets for 54 runs in 3rd ODI. In T20I he managed to pick one wicket in the 2nd T20I game and 3 wicket haul in his 3rd T20I game. Former Indian cricketer praised Rahul Chahar and asserted :

“Rahul Chahar does not play regularly in the Team India squad since Yuzvendra Chahal is the No. 1 leg-spinner. Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar are also other spin options Team India have. Varun Chakravarthy is also trying to make a name as a mystery spinner. But Chahar has grabbed every opportunity that has come his way to play for Team India.”

The 43-year-old lauded Chahar for having a lot of confidence in bowling. Also, he said Rahul Chahar reminds him of Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan. Aakash Chopra stated:

“Chahar bowls with a lot of confidence and is incisive and accurate. He bowls quick through the air and the ball often zips past the batsman on pitching. From his action, it seems like he is bowling a googly when he is actually delivering a leg-spinner. He has got this mystery about him and variations, which remind me a little about Rashid Khan. If he does well in the IPL, Team India will be tempted to play him in the T20 World Cup along with Chahal.”

“Whenever they get chances, they will do well” – Aakash Chopra on Kuldeep and Chahal

Meanwhile, Aakash Chopra also talked about the return of the star spin duo of India Kul-Cha which consists of spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. Notably, the spin duo of Kuldeep and Chahal was seen together for the first time after 2019. Chopra applauded Kuldeep and Chahal for delivering good performances whenever they got the opportunity. Aakash Chopra elaborated:

“Don’t forget Kul-Cha. There was a reason they were playing together for Team India at one point of time. Whenever they get chances, they will do well. Both Kuldeep and Chahal made a major impact in the first two ODIs and were among the wickets as well. Kuldeep got an opportunity in the T20Is too and did not let the chance slip. There is a lesson for KKR in this. They need to play him and give him that confidence.”
