India’s veteran leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been the biggest trump card for the Indian team in the last few years in the white-ball format of the game. Chahal is considered among the best bowlers in current cricket. What makes Chahal special is that he performs even better under pressure.

Both former captain Virat Kohli and current captain Rohit Sharma also had a lot of faith in Chahal for this reason, and Chahal has also proved his captain’s faith time and time again. Especially Chahal has consistently performed well in T20 cricket.

In this article, we are going to look at Yuzvendra Chahal’s top three best performances in T20 cricket.
