Chahal, on the other hand, prefers to look forward and perform well in the next matches instead of living in the past. He stated that he hopes to impress in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and help Haryana win the trophy. Opening up about his difficult period following the T20 World Cup refusal, the leggie revealed that the support and love of his family held him back.
I have done well under Virat bhaiya: Chahal
“It was disappointing to lose a spot in the Indian team for a mega-event like the World Cup. I think I did reasonably well in the IPL and in the series against Sri Lanka. But that’s part of a sportsperson’s life. I was eyeing the World Cup since the time it was postponed. Nevertheless, I got great support from my family to overcome that disappointment. It was wonderful to get into the India dressing room against New Zealand,” said Chahal.
The Haryana spin bowler returned to the international scene last month with the NZ T20Is. The T20I leadership is now with standout batter Rohit Sharma, and Chahal remarked that he hopes to do well underneath Sharma’s captaincy after displaying class under former T20I captain Virat Kohli.
“I have done well under Virat bhaiya and hope to keep doing well under Rohit bhaiya‘s captaincy in the T20 format. I have played with Rahul Dravid as a coach while being in the India A team. He is a great coach with an intelligent cricket mind. Then there is Paras Mhambrey also now as bowling coach. I held discussions with him on my bowling. His inputs would definitely benefit me,” concluded Chahal.
