Asia Cup 2018: Yuzvendra Chahal Credits Fast Bowlers for the Win Against Pakistan
Team India cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal credited the pacers for building pressure on Pakistan during their consecutive win against Pakistan in the Asia Cup.
Meanwhile, India scripted another convincing victory in the six-nation tournament. Pakistan bettered the 163 they scored the last time they faced India, in the group stage. However, they could not capitalise on the position of strength but stuttered towards the end of the innings.

However, India in both the games, have picked wickets with the new ball which has put Pakistan under pressure. If it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first game, Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav did the damage on Sunday.
Yuzvendra Chahal, who returned with two for 46 credited pacers for creating enough pressure early on. He also added that the spinners came later to capitalise on the pressure.
“The new-ball bowlers usually bowl seven to eight overs before we spinners come into the attack, and the pressure they build on the batsmen with the new ball – they concede not more than 20-25 runs – helps us plan our line of attack as to where to bowl to maintain that pressure,” Chahal explained.
“Because if you don’t give away boundaries in this format, the batsmen will inevitably be under pressure,” he added.

Yuzvendra Chahal came to attack in the eighth over, inside the first Powerplay. He responded immediately by trapping Imam-ul-Haq in front of the wickets. Chahal admitted he is now comfortable with bowling with field restrictions given how much he has bowled in the Powerplay in T20 cricket.
“I have bowled quite a lot during the Powerplay in the IPL [Indian Premier League] and T20s, so this isn’t anything new for me,” he said. “I keep practicing for it in the nets and vary my pace and lengths according to the wicket,” Chahal concluded.
