Yuzvendra Chahal is honing his skills ahead of the limited series against Sri Lanka and says this time it will be “a more confident Yuzi” who will bowling in Colombo. It focuses entirely on the current series.
Although he played his last ODI in November 2020, he will be the team’s lead statesman, a role he was briefed on by head coach Rahul Dravid.
“I’m playing an ODI series after so long, but we’ve played here before – two practice games. [We’ve been practicing] early in the morning to get used to the heat. It will be totally different from the 20 overs below, we are in the field for three and a half hours, ”said Chahal at a virtual press conference on the announcement of the title sponsors of the Indian tour in Sri Lanka.
Chahal isn’t someone who has a huge ball turner or a menacing googly, but what makes him successful is his ability to keep the ball on the stumps. 25% of its wickets are lbw, 11% are bowling.
He frequently uses the drift to push the ball towards the batter’s leg stump, often resulting in error in judgment.
This is one of the reasons he also works on his angles.
“I have a few variations and it’s not like using all the other deliveries. You will see a more confident Yuzi in this series. I work on my angles and I take a closer look at which one I have to play the most, ”he concluded.
