Mumbai: Former Indian cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra has said that Rajasthan Royals’ Yusvendra Chehal is the best leg-spinner in the world when it comes to traditional leg-spin balls. Chehal, who took 27 wickets, won the Purple Cap last IPL season.
‘Chehal is the best bowler. A player who bowls very differently from everyone else. Leg-spinners usually throw more googlies in Twenty20 cricket. There are very few panthers at stump length. Chehal’s variation is stunning. When he sees it, he seems to be a gangmaster.
The ball should slide through the air, drop slightly and then bounce. This is the story of a leg spinner. If the batter is positioned against the leg stump, do not reach the ball. The pitch of the ball should be outside the leg stump while the bat is in the calculation of pitch the ball at the stump line.
If the ball is pitched at the stump line, it will allow the batter to take an easy shot. On the other hand, when the ball is pitched outside the leg stump, it can be difficult to take the shot.
But the story changes when Chehal bowls at the stump line. Chehal could not be easily lifted and hit as the ball was turning excessively. “Chehal is a leg-spinner who throws himself off the stumps,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
