In the most recent turn of events, BCCI announced the 15-man squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup which is all set to take place in the UAE. While there were some relatively new names that came up in the squad, there were some surprising exclusions too. The exclusion of ace leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal turned to be one of the biggest surprises from India’s T20 WC squad.
As India’s squad came on up on the table during the late hours of September 08, 2021, fans and supporters started questioning Chahal’s omission. In the same light of events, spinner’s wife and dancer Dhanashree Verma has come up with an indirect story on her official IG handle where she has talked about the hard times. She made a point in her post (related to Chahal’s exclusion) that this is probably the tough phase in their lives but even this will pass eventually and that God is always great.
As soon as Chahal’s exclusion came upon the table, people started questioning it. However, India’s former pacer and head of selection panel Chetan Sharma opened up on the matter and added that they needed fast spinners rather than those who provide flight. Therefore, they went with Rahul Chahar, and Chahal was excluded from the lot.
