Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg has praised Yuzvendra Chahal, saying the latter’s growth as a leg spinner over the past two years has impressed him the most. Hogg even believes that with Chahal back to his best, India led by Rohit Sharma are favorites to win the upcoming T20 World Cup.
Since the start of IPL 2022, Yuzvendra Chahal was in prodigious form with the ball in hand. With 27 wickets in the recent running edition of the cash-rich league, the 31-year-old set a record for the most wickets taken by a spinner in the history of the competition. He kept up the momentum to keep up the good work in Ireland and England, most recently taking four wickets at Lord’s in the second ODI of the three-game series against Joe Buttler and his boys.
Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg was impressed with Chahal’s revolution in limited cricket over the past couple of years. In fact, Hogg remarked that Chahal’s good form will get even better in Australia at the upcoming T20 World Cup later this year, which will make Rohit Sharma and Co. the favorites to win the prestigious title.
“(Having seen) his growth over the past two years, he (Chahal) is going to have a better streak (the T20 World Cup) in Australia. He had a period where he was discovered but he found a method to rebuild and get back into the competition,” Hogg told reporters on the sidelines of a tourism event in “Western Australia.”
“He (Chahal) has grown as an individual which is another reason why India are favourites. Chahal is up there. I think leg rotation in T20 cricket is probably the best option. more efficient, especially in the middle overs. Chahal is that he is among the best.”
Despite having the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep YadavRavi Bishnoy and Axar Patel in the mix, Chahal is the favorite to play as India’s specialist spinner at the T20 World Cup in Australia.
