Dubai മുംബൈ Mumbai Indians fans were shocked by the announcement of the squad for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). After losing the toss, Rohit announced the squad for the final and announced that Rahul Chahar would be out. Instead, Jayant Yadav, who has played only one match before this season! He has played before against Delhi. He could not make any significant wickets that day.
Rohit explained why he made such a decision shortly after the team announcement. Mumbai leg-spinner Rahul Chahar has been replaced by off-spinner Jayant Yadav as the Delhi team has a lot of left-handers. This is because Jayant’s balls will be difficult to play as they go away from left – handed batsmen. Rohit’s reaction to the change in the team is as follows:
‘Everyone on the team is fit. But there is a change. Rahul Chahar will be replaced by Jayant Yadav. This is only a change considering the number of left-handers in the Delhi line-up. Rahul has bowled very well so far. It’s hard to get him out. But Jayant is also a good bowler, ”said Rohit.
Jayant kept the confidence of the captain who bowled in the fourth over. Shikhar Dhawan clean bowled with 3 fours. Jayant bowled enthusiastically and was stingy in the middle overs. He conceded 25 runs in 4 overs. Jayant has the best economy rate among Mumbai bowlers – 6.25.
Meanwhile, it is clear that Rahul Chahar’s fading against Delhi Capitals in the first qualifier also led to his dismissal. Rahul Chahar was the only batsman to make a comeback in a match in which all the Mumbai bowlers bowled well. He conceded 35 runs in two overs. No wicket was taken. When he returned after the match, Rohit’s intervention to boost the youngster’s confidence had attracted attention. The scene of Rohit pushing the player forward, asking him to lead the team, went viral.
