Star India National Cricket Team leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has revealed that the Men In Blue captain Rohit Sharma gave him a piece of advice ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 that helped him succeed both in the Indian Premier League and International Cricket.

Yuzvendra Chahal dominated the batters in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) while playing for the inaugural champions, Rajasthan Royals. He finished with 27 wickets in his bag in 17 games at an average of 19.52 and an economy of 7.75. Also, Chahal won the purple cap in the IPL 2022.

Speaking to Sports Yaari, Chahal revealed that Rohit Sharma had told him to “bowl in end overs as well powerplay”. He added that Rohit’s advice boosted his confidence in bowling in those phases of the game and played a key role in his success.

“Before going to the IPL, Rohit Bhai told me to bowl in end overs as well powerplay, I communicated this with Sanju during IPL then it helped my confidence in bowling in these phases and continuing in the Indian team as well.”

The problem is we just think about his 100s – Yuzvendra Chahal on Virat Kohli

While talking about the former India National Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli’s current form, Chahal said that people only think about his centuries and his crucial 60-70 runs contributions with the bat are being ignored.

“If there is someone who has a 50+ average in T20Is, he has been the Man Of The Tournament in two T20 World Cups, he has 70 hundreds across all formats. You just see his average across all formats, the problem is we just think about his 100s, we don’t talk about those valuable contributions of 60-70 because of the standards he has set,” said the 32-year-old. 

“If he is there at the crease and has 15-20 runs behind him, I am telling you no bowler wants to bowl to him,” the off-spinner added.
