Yuzvendra Chahal – Key Skills and Strengths

Chahal isn’t the biggest turner of the ball, nor does he have a big turning googly, which most of the wrist spinners these days do. However, his main strength lies in his line and length with variations in his pace. The leg spinner also isn’t afraid of taking the risk and loves to flight the ball to the batter, luring him into the shot. His knack for consistently taking wickets in the middle overs has been a huge plus for Team India at the international stage. Chahal’s three 5-wicket hauls in ODIs and T20Is speak for themselves.
