- India vs Sri Lanka ODI Series
- Chahal is close to a big achievement
The three-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka is going to start from Sunday. Both the teams will play the first ODI at the R Premdas Stadium in Colombo. Team India will be led by opener Shikhar Dhawan and Dasun Shanaka will take over the reins of Sri Lanka. Many young faces can play for the first time from the Indian team. When India and Sri Lanka face each other, many records will be created and many will be broken. India’s spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is also very close to achieving a big achievement in this series.
The ‘Shatakveer’ of wickets can become a series
Chahal can become the ‘centurveer’ of wickets in the ODI series. He has to do only 8 more hunting, after which he will touch the figure of 100. Chahal has so far taken 92 wickets in 54 ODIs. If the spinner manages to hit a hundred, he will become the 22nd Indian bowler to hit 100 or more wickets in ODIs. Along with this, Chahal is also close to beating two former Indian cricketers Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag. If Chahal is successful in taking 9 wickets in the series, then he will leave Ganguly behind. Ganguly has taken 100 wickets in his ODI career.
Spinner Chahal just 5 steps away from Sehwag
At the same time, Chahal is just a few steps away from overtaking former explosive batsman and spinner Sehwag. If Chahal takes 5 wickets, he will overtake Sehwag. Sehwag has taken 96 wickets in ODIs. Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Yuvraj Singh are included in the list of Indian bowlers who have taken more than 100 wickets. The bowlers who took more than 200 wickets are Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh. Let us inform that the bowler who took the most ODI wickets from India is Anil Kumble (337) while Javagal Srinath (315) is at number two.
