Chahal praises Vettori for making him a better bowler

According to Sunil Gavaskar, Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner Chahal was the best young talent of the recently concluded IPL 9 which finished yesterday. Sunrisers had defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 runs in the finals at M Chinaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.

He bowled with great flight and variations not allowing batsmen to hit big strokes. In IPL 9 he picked 21 wickets in the tournament. His contributions with Shane Watson helped RCB to reach finals. In the finals too Chahal was impressive and did not give too many runs. The emerging player of the tournament went to Bangladesh, Rahaman who bowled with great control. The performance of Chahal was superb. As a result of this RCB reached the finals but could not cross the finishing line. He finished behind Bhuvneshwar Kumar who was the leading wicket taker in the tournament with 23 wickets in 17 matches.

Other youngsters like Kunal Pandya, KL Rahul, Murgun Ashwin, Kaushik were playing their first IPL and  impressed with their style of play. Yuzvendra Chahal not only bowled well but also impressed with his attitude. He has been selected in the Indian team for the limited over’s format in Zimbabwe from 11th June.

“I am considering those who have temperament and not just talent. Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant and Krunal Pandya are the top three. I will pick Chahal at the top as he has got the right temperament,” Gavaskar said.

“He (Chahal) is not afraid of tossing up the ball and he kept on doing that. When there is some turn on the pitch, there have to be big edges from the batsmen’s bat. Chahal also has a big heart and he is not afraid of a big hit. On many occasions, he came back after being hit for sixes to claim wickets,” he told NDTV.

Risbah Pant also played well scoring 198 runs while Kunal Pandya contributed with bat and ball. He scored 327 runs and took 6 wickets in the tournament.

Gavaskar making about comments Pant and Pandya he said, “They have also done well in the tournament though they need some improvement. But Chahal is my top pick as he has been the most consistent.”
