Chahal is the first Indian men’s cricketer to take a five-wicket haul in a Twenty20 International (T20I). He achieved the feat in 2017 against England. The leg-spinner is also only the second bowler in the history of the game who has taken six wickets in a T20I as well in the One-Day International format.
Chahal, who also happens to be the fastest Indian bowler to 50 T20I wickets, played his first international game against Zimbabwe in 2016. The leg-spinner has played 42 matches in the shortest format of the game and has represented the country in 52 ODIs.
