Team India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is on the cusp of attaining a massive record during the 2nd T20I against Sri Lanka. The penultimate game of the series will take place on July 27 (Tuesday) at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
Chahal, who had a good outing so far in the Lankan Isles, could become the highest wicket-taker against Sri Lanka in T20 cricket if takes one more wicket. The 31-year-old Yuzvendra Chahal has so far accounted for 15 wickets against the hosts in the shortest format of the game and is currently tied with England pacer Chris Jordan in this regard.
The likes of Dwayne Bravo, former South African spinner Imran Tahir, former Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal, ex-Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi and Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa have 14 scalps each to their credits against Sri Lanka.
Bhuvnehswar Kumar upset with Yuzvendra Chahal
After a thumping win in the 1st T20I, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar appeared in the famous ‘Chahal TV’. Kumar’s fun side was there for all to see when he jokingly told Chahal for ignoring him for so long as it was his maiden appearance on Chahal TV on Sunday (25 July).
“I am upset with Chahal, as this is my first time on his show. I kept making signs from the dressing room, requesting him to invite me on the show, but he never called me,” said Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was awarded the Player of the Match earlier in the day for his four-for.
