REGARDED as a limited-overs specialist, Yuzvendra Chahal has been a vital component of India’s varied bowling line-up as he forms a formidable partnership with fellow spinner Kuldeep Yadav. An attacking leg-spinner, the 28-year-old Chahal is a genuine wicket-taker as already proved by his exploits in this World Cup. West Indies could find him a difficult proposition given their weakness against bowlers of this type.
WITH his team battling to stay in the World Cup, West Indies captain Jason Holder is a deeply worried man at this point in time after having led the region to the quarter-finals of the last mega event. A pace-bowling all-rounder, the 27-year-old Holder will be pretty disappointed with his overall returns so far. Unless he head from the front, West Indies will continue to struggle.
