Chahal looks to perform ‘at every given opportunity’ to secure T20 WCs pot

COLOMBO, July 26: Intense competition among a rich pool of players is driving leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal to perform “at every given opportunity” and firmly cement his place in the India squad ahead of the T20 World Cup.
With a good haul of wickets in the ongoing limited overs series against Sri Lanka, Chahal wriggled out of the rough patch that had confronted him during the truncated 2021 IPL.
After contributing in India’s victory over Sri Lanka in the first T20 International here, he acknowledged that one must perform to be in the side.
“It’s definitely (a healthy competition). If you have a pool of around 30 players, you definitely have the quality. All the spinners are doing well. As a spinner, you know that there are at least two guys who are ready, who have performed here and in the IPL.
“All I can do is think for myself and perform at every given opportunity. If you perform, you get to play, and if you don’t — be it me or anybody — then you are out.
“So, whenever I have the ball in my hand, I don’t think about others and I rather focus on getting the job done with the ball,” Chahal said on Sunday night.
The T20 World Cup is scheduled in October-November. (PTI)
