With the T20 Cricket World Cup set to begin, former cricketer Harbhajan Singh feels that Yuzvendra Chahal should be included in Team India’s roster for the showpiece event. The Indian squad can be changed till October 10 and Chahal was also not included in the standby list which includes Shreyas Iyer, Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar. Chahal is currently with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season in UAE, and he has played a crucial role with the franchise qualifying for the playoffs.
The leg spinner had earlier posted a tweet where he told fans that he was ready to give his 100 percent for the playoffs with RCB still seeking their first IPL title.
“On the edge of my seat for the rest of the #IPL with @RCBTweets . Ready to give my 100 percent”, he wrote.
Harbhajan retweeted the post and hailed the 31-year-old.
“You have given ur best as always.. keep it up.. and make sure u keep bowling the right pace.. Not too slow OK..still hoping to see you in team India for T20 World Cup.. Champion bowler”, he wrote.
