Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra lavished praise on Yuzvendra Chahal, claiming that his performances warrant a place in the white-ball side for the near future.

Chahal picked up seven wickets in the final two ODIs against England, proving his worth in the middle overs. He is also economical and ensures he ties down the batters from one end.

Last but not the least – my fourth player is Yuzi Chahal. His performances force you to think why he is not regularly in the team. The way he has bowled, I am slightly surprised you are not playing him all the matches.”

Why do you keep him out of the team in between? He played two matches in T20s, four wickets with an economy of 7.0. Two wickets in both innings, well done Yuzi,” Chopra told on his YouTube channel.

Chopra asserted that Chahal does not need to be rested in any game as he is a leg-spinner. He is an asset to the team and is India’s best wicket-taking option in the middle overs.

If we talk about ODI cricket, seven wickets in three innings with an economy of 5.35 and a best of 4/47. He didn’t get much chance to bowl in the first match. He is also telling us time and again that he is a special player and that you can use him better.

Personally, I didn’t like that he is being rested, he will play the ODIs in the West Indies tour but not the T20s. In my opinion, he should be allowed to play. He is not someone whose workload management you should talk about for the simple reason that he is a spinner, he will be alright,” he also added.
