IND vs SL 2021: “Rahul Chahar reminds me a little of Rashid Khan”

Former Team India opener Aakash Chopra has hailed young leg- Rahul Chahar for his impactful performances in the recently-concluded limited-overs series in Sri Lanka. Chopra paid a massive compliment to Chahar, stating that the young leggie reminded him a little of Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan.

Although Team India ended up losing the T20I series 1-2, Chahar impressed with four wickets, including 3 for 15 in the final T20. He also claimed 3 for 54 in the only ODI he played.

Speaking about Chahar on his YouTube channel, Chopra praised the young bowler and said:

“Rahul Chahar doesn’t not play regularly in the Team India squad since Yuzvendra Chahal is the No. 1 leg-spinner. Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar are also other spin options Team India have. Varun Chakravarthy is also trying to make a name as a mystery spinner. But Chahar has grabbed every opportunity that has come his way to play for Team India.”

“Chahar bowls with a lot of confidence and is incisive and accurate. He bowls quick through the air and the ball often zips past the batsman on pitching. From his action, it seems like he is bowling a googly when he is actually delivering a leg-spinner. He has got this mystery about him and variations, which remind me a little about Rashid Khan. If he does well in the IPL, Team India will be tempted to play him in the T20 World Cup along with Chahal.”
