Yuvzendra Chahal also talked about this World Cup next year
“Wilson. We can focus on playing with freedom and enjoying ourselves.”
“The captain acknowledged the fact that the visitors are strong but then cricket is a practical game, battles will be fought even if they have to win this one against Ireland”
“[India] is a fine T20 side, but at the end of the day, they’ve got to bat and we’ve got to bowl. If we bowl our best ball, they’ve still got to play that, no matter whether it’s Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma or whoever it is in the world. On any day anyone’s got the opportunity to beat anyone else, I guess that’s the beauty of sports and beauty of cricket.”
India’s right arm leg spin bowler Chahal was asked whether he was thinking this tour as a preparation for the World Cup next year, but he played it down when he said that “I am excited that this is my first tour in the UK. I’m not thinking about the World Cup,” he said. “I am thinking series by series instead of looking at the future.”
Chahal also talked about what makes the leggies stand out in modern day cricket and why batsmen get out to the wrist spinners.
“Compared to other spinners we have more variations. Like left-arm spinners only have straighter ones and normal spin. We have [around] four variations, so batsmen have to think more which ball is coming.”
