The ‘Kulcha,’ as they were affectionately called by fans and experts, had held Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja out of the limited-overs format for over two years. Things, on the other hand, have not gone as Chahal had hoped to be like.
The Haryana leg-spinner has gone off the selectors’ notice and is now not in the equation, with Washington Sunder, Axar Patel, and Ravindra Jadeja ahead of him in the pecking order. Chahal, on the other hand, claims that he is still bowling well and that his form has not changed.
“There are times when the bowler goes wicketless in a couple of matches”- Yuzvendra Chahal About His Recent Struggle In Cricket
“I don’t think so (on being out of form). I have been playing for so long now. I have been bowling in the IPL too. You can’t take wickets in all the matches. There are times when the bowler goes wicketless in a couple of matches. That doesn’t mean his form has dipped. In T20Is, one needs to bowl with full control. We need to control the flow of runs. So, it is tough to bowl in T20Is,” Chahal told in an exclusive interview.
With some of the first-choice players unavailable due to the England series, Chahal will almost certainly be selected on the Sri Lanka tour. The leg-spinner feels it will just take one or two games for him to return on doing what he does best: collecting wickets.
“People have got used to seeing me taking wickets. I have worked really hard to reach this level. I have impressed my fans by taking wickets. Obviously, when I am not taking wickets, there will be comparisons and fans will be disappointed. But my form hasn’t dipped. It’s just a matter of a couple of matches. This is just a phase for me. It happens with a batsman too when he is not able to score runs in 3 or 4 or 5 matches but after that, he starts scoring runs. You will see me back in wicket-taking mode again and that too very soon,” the leg-spinner further said.
