Ahead of the Zimbabwe tour, Yuzvendra Chahal was not sure what kind of a person MS Dhoni is but, now being in his company for a few days and even having shared the change room with him, the leggie says that the wicketkeeper-captain is really an easy going person and playing under him, it never seems such a big personality is in charge.
According to Chahal, the simplicity of MS is what really stands out. You don’t have to think twice before going and saying anything to him. He listens to everyone, be it a debutant or a senior player.
Chahal managed to have only one scalp yesterday in Harare, but, he was on the top of the batsmen all the time. The chances went past the slip on two occasions; otherwise, he would have come up with a three-for on debut.
Chahal is someone who still does not always happen to be in the XI of his first class team. Haryana is the state he plays from and the home stadium of Haryana has quick pitches.
So, three fast bowlers pick themselves automatically on the conditions there and it leaves the space for just one spinner to play and that one spinner has to be Amit Mishra as he is the much senior fellow.
Chahal is not even the understudy to Amit Mishra at Haryana.
Jayant Yadav who also belongs to the same region and is a batsman too apart from being an off spinner has the edge over Chahal when Mishra is unavailable for the state.
However, the heroics in the Indian Premier League have got Chahal donning the blue shirt and if he makes the 6 Zimbabwe games count, it would pave the way for a longer stay for him with the Indian side.
