The disappointing performance of the Indian team in the T20 World Cup continues. In the group stage itself, India has lost two consecutive matches. After this, questions are also being raised on the selection of the Indian team. Star young leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has not got a chance in this World Cup.Also Read – T20 World Cup 2021: After India’s defeat, Virat Kohli’s daughter threatened with rape, Inzamam ul Haq said – ‘shameful’
On this, South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir has termed Chahal’s selection as unfortunate. He said that this bowler can turn the game any time but he was not selected in the team itself.

The Virat Kohli-led team did not have a good campaign in the T20 World Cup due to two consecutive defeats and for this, fingers are being pointed at the selection. These include not selecting Chahal.

Tahir said in the virtual media conversation, ‘He (Chahal) is a great bowler. I personally wanted to see him in the T20 World Cup but unfortunately he was not selected. He bowls a variety. Not just googling or leg break, he also does top spinner, flipper and slider. Leg spinners are playing a big role. Batsmen can no longer play like they used to play 10 years ago. Credit goes to all the spinners and the decoration of the field.
New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi took the wickets of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for 17 runs against India on Sunday, for which he was adjudged the man of the match. Tahir said, ‘Having played for South Africa as a leg-spinner in the past and in league cricket, I believe that a leg-spinner can turn the tide of the match immediately by taking two-three wickets early.’
