The Indian team is currently on a tour of Australia and from 27 November the ODI series between the two teams is going to begin. Team India is presently in Sydney and is practicing vigorously. Yuzvendra Chahal, who performed brilliantly for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2020, is part of the T20 and ODI team on this tour and he too is sweating heavily in the nets. Chahal Waisai is known for his spinning balls, but in Sydney, he was seen trying his hand at batting, after which many cricketers enjoyed themselves.
Chahal shared the video of his batting on his Instagram and wrote in the caption, ‘This time Scores will add in’. On this post of Chahal, Dale Steyn, who shared the dressing room with him in the IPL 2020, wrote jokingly, ‘Saamna I am not only stan of fast off spin but famous Afghanistan bowler Rashid Khan also pulled Chahal’s leg and wrote, “Excellent Yuji, but both of us are good bowlers.” Suryakumar Yadav, who had made headlines by batting on behalf of Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020, also commented on Chahal’s post and wrote, ‘Tere se lenga hai baat lagga hai’.
Chahal’s performance in IPL 2020 was very good and he played 21 wickets in 15 matches this season while playing for RCB and his economy was also just 7.08. Chahal’s role in the ODI and T20 series against Australia is going to be quite important.
