India leggie, Yuzvendra Chahal has lavished massive praise on senior spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin.

Yesterday, India was once again dominant in the second ODI at Indore against Australia with both bat and ball.

While the Men in Blue posted their highest-ever total in ODIs against Australia at 399/5, it was Ashwin who changed things completely for India.

With some rain delays in the middle, the target was revised to 317 in 33 overs for Australia.

Meanwhile, Ashwin created havoc for the Aussie batters as he produced quick and sharp turns from the surface.

In the process, he also got the prized wickets of David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, and Josh Inglis.

Meanwhile, Chahal after watching Ashwin’s heroics, couldn’t help but admire his senior. Taking to Twitter, Chahal tweeted,

Ravichandran Ashwin name is enough @ashwinravi99 #Legend #INDvsAUS

Chahal fails to make a cut for the ODI World Cup 2023

On the other hand, Chahal didn’t find a place in India’s tentative ODI World Cup squad yet again.

Moreover, the BCCI had to make a tough decision in choosing between Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.

Additionally, with the presence of Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel, the BCCI didn’t want any logistical challenges.

Now, Kuldeep’s inclusion in the squad has added depth to both bowling and batting for India for the World Cup.

Furthermore, Chahal has been through a similar experience back in 2021 after being snubbed from the 2021 T20 World Cup squad.

However, Chahal’s numbers in the IPL speak for themselves as he is truly a spin wizard in the tournament with 187 wickets.

He also has an average of 21.68 and an economy rate of 7.66 which makes it quite impossible to remove him from the playing XI.
