Kolkata: Dinesh Karthik, the wicket-keeper and commentator, said leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal would be an integral part of the Indian team for the 2022 T20 World Cup. Next year, Australia will host the T20 World Cup. The non-inclusion of Chahal in the Indian squad for this year’s World Cup, which ended in the UAE, was widely criticized.
After getting a chance in the third match of the T20 series against New Zealand, Yusvendra Chahal’s team is back in action in India’s T20 projects. This was Chahal’s first opportunity to wear an Indian shirt after his tour of Sri Lanka. India have added spinner Rahul Chahar to their squad for the T20 World Cup in the UAE.
These are the words of Dinesh Karthik about Yusvendra Chahal returning to the Indian playing XI. ‘It’s great to see Chahal come back. He showed his talent. The way he bowled in the second quarter of the 14th season of the IPL made Chahal the real champion. He is the leading leg spinner in India. Being also a chess player, Chahal is able to set foot above others. So I rate the star more and more.
Chahal is also a brave bowler with great talent and variations. In 2013, Royal Challengers Bangalore acquired the player for Rs 10 lakh in the IPL. But now the player has grown to more value than that. It is hoped that the franchise will retain Chahal. Chahal is the best bowler abroad. I’m sure Chahal will be on the Indian flight to Australia for next year’s T20 World Cup. Rohit trusts him a lot. The two have a good relationship on and off the field, ”said Karthik.

Yusvendra Chahal returns to the Indian T20 squad after a stellar performance in the UAE stage of IPL 2021. In the Indian stage, he took only four wickets in seven matches, while in the UAE he took 14 wickets in eight matches. The economy of India is 8.26 and that of the UAE is 7.06. Returning in the third T20I against New Zealand, he bowled four overs and conceded 26 runs before dismissing half-century Martin Guptill.
