Team India's senior bowler Yuzvendra Chahal is out of the T20 World Cup team. In his place, young spinner Rahul Chahar has got a place in the 15-member team. Captain Virat Kohli justified this decision on Saturday. Chahal (Yuzvendra Chahal) is the highest wicket-taker for India in T20 Internationals. At the same time, Rahul Chahar has been able to take only 7 wickets. In the past, in IPL 2021 too, Chahal did a great job.
Talking to the media, Virat Kohli said, 'It was a challenging decision. But for one reason decided to include him in the team. He has done brilliantly in the IPL in the last few years. He said that Chahar bowls at a fast pace. He performed brilliantly against Sri Lanka and England. Even at home, he bowled well in tough matches against England.
Virat Kohli said, 'We believe that as the tournament progresses in the UAE. The wicket will get slower. In such a situation, a bowler bowling fast on these pitches can trouble the batsmen more. Rahul Chahar has such quality. He always attacks the wickets. He said that it was because of this quality of Chahar that he was chosen. It is always difficult to choose a team for the World Cup and you cannot keep everyone on the team.
14 wickets in UAE
Yuzvendra Chahal took 18 wickets in 15 matches of IPL 2021. He took 14 wickets in 8 matches in the UAE itself. On the other hand, Rahul Chahar could not perform well in UAE. In the end, Mumbai Indians also dropped him from the team. Talking about T20 International, Chahal has taken 63 wickets for India. Rahul Chahar, on the other hand, could only take 7 wickets.
