In the IPL, chances are high that if you are a spinner, you are more likely to be bashed on a frequent basis. That, however, hasn’t been the story of Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. The young leggie has been with the franchise for quite a while now and bowling on the flat deck of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium has polished his T20 bowling skills.

Chahal made history in February this year, as his impeccable six-wicket haul in a T20I at Bangalore decimated England. Sadly though, the leggie is yet to don the Indian colours since that eventful evening, and now in a boost to his career, Chahal is set to tour South Africa for the India A series.

Before departing for South Africa, Chahal spoke to Hindustan Times and mentioned his IPL captain’s constant backing, which made things easier for him. The streak of regular losses in the competition did rankle the RCB team.

“My confidence as a bowler was shaken too mid-way. Thereafter, Virat paaji and coach Daniel Vettori intervened and infused confidence in me. It really got me going again,” said Chahal.

India dearly rued the presence of a wrist spinner in the Champions Trophy and that was clearly evident in the final. Given his aura as a wicket taker, it is believed that Chahal will be in the ODI setup sooner than later. The spinner though, mentioned that all his focus was just on the tour of South Africa, and nothing else.

“The Champions Trophy and West Indies tour are over now, so there is no point in discussing them. There are certain things which are not in anyone’s control. My job is to perform and give my best. I am training hard ahead of the India ‘A’ tour to South Africa. I would aim to play to my potential and do well for the team,” Chahal said.
