Aakash Chopra on Rahul Chahar | Aakash Chopra says Rahul Chahar remind me a little about Rashid Khan
Rashid Khan and Aakash Chopra
- India lost T20 series to Sri Lanka
- Indian team got 2-1 defeat
- One spinner managed to make an impact
The Indian team lost the three-match T20I series 2-1 against Sri Lanka. However, young leg-spinner Rahul Chahar, who played two matches in the series, managed to make a mark. He took 1 wicket for 27 runs in the second T20, while in the second, third and last match he took three wickets for 15 runs. Chahar has made many admirers with his bowlers, including Aakash Chopra, a former Indian batsman and famous commentator. Akash has praised Chahar a lot. He says that the Indian spinners are reminiscent of Rashid Khan of Afghanistan.
‘Chahar has taken advantage of every opportunity.’
Aakash Chopra said in the video shared on his YouTube channel that Rahul Chahar does not get frequent opportunities from Team India team, because Yuzvendra Chahal is the number-1 leg-spinner. India also have Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar as spin options. Varun Chakraborty is also trying to make a name for himself as a mystery spinner. But whenever Chahar got a chance to play for India, he has taken advantage.
‘Chahar bowls sharp and accurate’
Chopra said that Chahar bowls with a lot of confidence. He bowls sharp and precise. He bowls fast in the air. Once the ball hits the pitch, the batsman is often dodged quickly. His action looks like he will bowl a googly ball but it is actually low leg-spin. He also has mystery bowling skills and also knows how to mix, which reminds me a bit of Rashid Khan. If he does well in the IPL, then the Indian team can pick him to play in the T20 World Cup with Chahal.
‘It is not easy to ignore Kulcha’
The former batting further said that don’t forget Kulcha (Kuldeep Yadav-Yuzvendra Chahal). There was a time when they were playing together in Team India. Whenever he gets a chance, he will do well. Both Kuldeep and Chahal made a big impact in the first two ODIs and also took wickets. Kuldeep also got a chance in the T20 match and did not let the opportunity miss. There is a lesson for KKR in this. He needs to give Kuldeep the opportunity and confidence.
