Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has taken a dig at Indian selectors after being snubbed off the Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Notably, the selection committee shocked everyone by announcing Chahal’s exclusion from the squad announced earlier last week.
Since then, a lot of questions have been raised on the Indian selection committee for excluding the ace spinner who has also been India’s leading wicket-taker in the T20 format. In place of Chahal, the young leg-spinner from Rajasthan, Rahul Chahar, has been included in the squad as the primary leg-spinner.
Yuzvendra Chahal Takes A Dig At Indian Selectors For His T20 World Cup Squad Snub
When chief Indian selector, Chetan Sharma was asked about Chahal’s exclusion from the squad, Sharma mentioned that they wanted to go ahead with someone who bowls quickly in the air, and thus, Rahul Chahar was prioritized ahead of Yuzvendra Chahal. Now, Chahal has taken a dig at Sharma’s statements, commenting on one of Aakash Chopra’s Tweets.
Taking to Twitter, Aakash Chopra tweeted, “Picked a few trends from the first 30 games of #IPL2020 I think most will be valid this time too. 1. Win the toss-bat first 2. Pick genuine pace over medium-pacers 3. Bat cautiously in the PP overs 4. Faster spinners likely to make an impact Agree?”
Picked a few trends from the first 30 games of #IPL2020 I think most will be valid this time too.
1. Win the toss-bat first
2. Pick genuine pace over medium-pacers
3. Bat cautiously in the PP overs
4. Faster spinners likely to make an impact
