The young leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal who plays a crucial role in the Indian cricket team on Tuesday said that he has developed two variations of Googly ahead the England Tour. He feels that this will benefit him in the long run.
Chahal on the eve of India’s opening T20 International against Ireland, "I have two googlies - one closer to the head and one more side-arm. So I try to mix it up. Batsmen have to look at the head position, so it is an advantage for me".
Chahal feels that a leg-spinner has more variations than a left-arm spinner.
"For example, a left-arm spinner can have only two variations, but a leg-spinner has at least four variations so the batsmen are always thinking about what he is going to face next," said Chahal.
Though Chahal knows that wrist spinners will not automatically win matches but the wiry Haryana bowler feels that current conditions in England will help him.
"Wrist spinners are a recent trend, and it is not like without wrist spin you cannot win here. But I think conditions here (in Ireland and England) will help spinners. English spinners have picked up wickets in the ODI series against Australia, so that is encouraging for us. England has scored 400-plus tall scores against Australia, and not us," he added.
It would be Chahal’s first tour of United Kingdom and he is desperate to make it memorable.
Chahal said, "Every tour is important for us, but for me especially this is an important one because I have come here for the first time, whether it is Ireland or England. Yesterday, I bowled in the nets in London and the weather was hot, almost same as in the sub-continent."
"I hope the weather stays the same and I am looking forward to more hot days like that. Whether I get to play in the first T20 or the second, I am going to enjoy my outing here," he added.
We hope that Yuzvendra Chahal makes India team win the series with his bowling skills.
