The Indian Premier League in the UAE has seen some breathtaking bowling exhibitions. Be it Mohammed Shami from Kings XI Punjab who was very impressive against the Delhi Capitals‘ and also made his best ever IPL bowling figures of 3/15. Or be it Kolkata Knight Riders‘ and Australian cricket’s premier fast bowler Pat Cummins who totally choked Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith. A few more bowlers have stayed in the spotlight in this year’s IPL.
Bowlers like Jofra Archer, Kagiso Rabada, and Rashid Khan consistently have been ruling the headlines at whatever point IPL moves around. Be that as it may, there is one bowler who has been tremendous throughout this season and very silently getting up the ladder in the bowling outlines – Yuzvendra Chahal.
We should talk more about Chahal, says Gambhir
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s most dependent leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been able to 8 wickets in 5 games that he played this season at an average of 18.00 so far in the competition. He has been performing splendidly this season.
Former India opener Gautam Gambhir, who drove Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles during his cricketing days, said that individuals should go and discuss Chahal more often than what they have been doing so far.
Yuzvendra Chahal has been splendid. We are discussing more Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Rashid Khan, and Jofra Archer, but Chahal in all the IPL, especially in this season, has been the stand out bowler. It will be no shame if we discuss more Chahal than other star bowlers in this season. There is more publicity around different bowlers. Be that as it may, he has done splendidly for RCB.
Chahal didn’t have a great excursion against DC on Monday as he went wicketless in his three overs. RCB lost the match by a mammoth 59-run difference with batsmen neglecting to get moving at the Dubai International Stadium.
