Yuzvendra Chahal Credits Seniors For His, Kuldeep Yadav’s Good Recent Form

Written by Vipin Darwade

Yuzvendra Chahal speaking about his partnership with fellow Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav, said that the suggestions and leadership provided by the senior members of the Indian team have proven to be fruitful, with the pair having accounted for 103 wickets in 28 ODIs when they have played together for India.

“Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) has helped a lot. He tells us how a wicket will play and so it helps us figure things out quickly instead of wasting overs on trying to understand the wicket. So that has been a big plus point for both me and Kuldeep (Yadav),” Yuzvendra Chahal told IANS.

“Apart from him, Virat (Kohli) and Rohit (Sharma) also always look to help us out. I think in our team every person is their own captain and we all respect each other. So for me and Kuldeep, it was great that we came into a dressing room that had these experienced players who were ready to back us up” he added.

Chahal further said that he hasn’t brought about too many changes in his bowling technique during away tours.

“I am doing exactly what I have always been doing for the past few years. I have not brought many changes to my game. The variations are the same, but I am a bit more mature in mixing them up now.”

India will kick-start their 2019 World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5.
