T20 World Cup 2021: Why Yuzvendra Chahal was not picked, Virat Kohli explains the reason
T20 World Cup 2021 is starting from 17 October in Qatar-UAE. At the same time, India has to play its first match against Pakistan on 24 October. Before the start of the T20 World Cup, Indian captain Virat Kohli spoke to the media on Saturday, in which he answered many important questions. The most important of these was the question that why Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected in the T20 World Cup team? After all, why was Rahul Chahar given preference over Chahal?
Virat Kohli gave the reason for dropping Chahal and including Chahar in the team. Virat Kohli said, ‘Ejecting Yuzvendra Chahal was a difficult decision. Rahul Chahar had bowled excellently in the IPL for the last two years. Chahar’s delivery was quick and he bowled wonderfully in Sri Lanka and against England as well. Rahul Chahar bowled a good ball in tough conditions.
Rahul Chahar’s selection considering UAE pitches
Virat Kohli said that Rahul Chahar was selected considering the pitches of UAE. Kohli said, ‘We saw the pitches of UAE that as the game progresses there the pitches become slow. The spinner who turns the ball at high speed puts the batsmen in more trouble. Chahar attacks the stumps and bowls where he gets the wickets. The same thing went in favor of Rahul Chahar. However, whenever Yuzvendra Chahal played cricket for India, he was excellent.
Chahar flop-Chahal hit in second round of IPL 2021
By the way, the interesting thing is that in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, Rahul Chahar flopped badly and Yuzvendra Chahal bowled amazingly. Rahul Chahar played only 4 matches for Mumbai Indians in the UAE leg and got only 2 wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal took 14 wickets in 9 matches on UAE pitches. It is clear from the statistics that Yuzvendra Chahal performed better than Rahul Chahar on UAE pitches. Despite this, this leg-spinner did not get a place in the T20 World Cup team.
