Perfect Opportunity For Parvez Rasool, Yuzvendra Chahal To Seal Their Spots: Virat Kohli
India skipper Virat Kohli has insisted it would be a perfect opportunity for the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Parvez Rasool to seal their places in the T20I side, come the England series.
India are set to play a three-match T20I series against England with the first match scheduled to be played on January 26 at Green Park, Kanpur. The new skipper has backed both spinners to play to their potential as he has observed them from close during their time at RCB in the IPL.
The BCCI, on Monday, decided to rest the two premier spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the wake of the upcoming Test series against Bangladesh and Australia in February.
With both premier bowlers rested, the Board has called Rasool to the national team. The upcoming series provides a perfect chance to showcase his caliber against the mighty English batting line-up, which contains some of the best power hitters in the world at the moment.
On the other hand, Chahal looked decent in the warm-up game as he came back well in his spell after going for plenty of runs in the initial overs. However, he’ll not have so much time in the T20 game as he’ll need to get his lines straight from the very first ball.
Both will need to play their best in the match as other spinners like Amit Mishra and Kuldeep Yadav are also in the ranks and could very well be called if the duo do not bowl to their potential in the upcoming T20I games.
