Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar stated that leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will be a trump card for the Rohit Sharma-led side in the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. However, Chahal is India’s highest wicket-taker in T20Is with 74 wickets and with his recent performances in IPL 2022, Chahal has become a certain choice in India’s T20 WC squad.

“Yuzvendra Chahal is a player who was missed a lot in the last World Cup. He will definitely emerge as a trump card in Australia and give the Indian team good success,” Sanjay Bangar was quoted as saying on Star Sports. “If any leg-spinner has played consistently for a long time for India, that is Anil Kumble. After Anil Kumble, if any wrist-spinner has played consistently for India or a long time, it is Yuzvendra Chahal.”

Meanwhile, Sanjay Bangar added that playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium has helped Yuzvendra Chahal develop as a T20 bowler as well. Notably, Chahal won the Purple Cap with the Royals in IPL 2022 as well.

“Absolutely, it has played a huge role. It is tested how big a heart you have. When you learn to get hit and are not afraid of getting hit, then you learn how to bowl. He changes his seam position slightly, bowls different-different lines, this has been his strength. He has brought a very good aspect to his game, which is to bowl on wider lines to both right-handers and left-handers. That learning that he has got has come from Chinnaswamy only,” Sanjay Bangar concluded.
