India’s premier spinner and in-form bowler Yuzvendra Chahal will be aiming to reach a unique feat in the second T20 international against Sri Lanka by getting his name on the wickets column. Chahal had been struggling to find his rhythm in the IPL and the series against England and a lot of criticism developed on him.
However, he got through the rough patch by working on getting his rhythm back and the lines that have been effective for him so far. He battled it through and had a great ODI series against Sri Lanka. He was one of the biggest positives from the series and he continued his form into the T20 internationals as well.
Chahal, One Wicket Away From The Unique Record
Yuzvendra Chahal is back to business as he approaches the unique record of taking the most wickets in T20 internationals against Sri Lanka. England fast bowler Chris Jordan is currently holding the record equally alongside Yuvendra Chahal with 15 wickets and one wicket might just push Chahal to the top.
The list comprises of big names like Adam Zampa, Shahid Afridi, Saeed Ajmal, Imran Tahir, and DJ Bravo, all having a great record against the Sri Lankan batsman and Chahal will be proud to top the list. Apart from this feat, Chahal will also be playing his 50th T20 international in the second T20 international and it could be a special outing for the leg spinner with lots to be delighted about.
Chahal Making A Strong Statement For The T20 Worldcup
It is almost sure that Yuzvendra Chahal will be back to lead the spin attack for India in the T20 Worldcup and he has got lots of experience playing in IPL as well as in 49 T20 internationals. He finished as the highest wicket in the ODI series with 5 wickets in just 2 games and looked completely in a good rhythm. Rahul Chahar has been excellent whenever he has been handed an opportunity and Chahal must be wary of it too.
Yuzvendra Chahal bowled a beauty of a delivery to dismiss Dhananjaya De Silva in the previous T20 and will be looking to do the same this game.
