New Delhi: The Indian cricket team beat England by 66 points in the first ODI. With the victory of this game, India has now achieved a significant 1-0 lead in the 3 game series. In this match, Kuldeep Yadav got a chance in the squad in place of the leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, on which now the former Indian batsman of the team Virender Sehwag was badly burned. Sehwag said when the rest of the players can get a chance, why not Chahal.
Chahal hasn’t played since third T20
After showing himself to be costly in the first three matches of the T20 series against England, Yuzvendra Chahal was excluded from the squad for the last two matches and replaced by youngster Rahul Chahar. Something similar was also seen in the first game of the ODI series. Chahal doesn’t have a chance in the squad yet and Kuldeep Yadav has been lined up for him.
Raging Virender Sehwag
Virender Sehwag has raised big questions about Chahal (Yuzvendra Chahal) not being placed in the squad. Sehwag said in a conversation with Cricbuzz: “ You rule out the bowler only after a bad game, but you gave KL Rahul four chances and then you sat in game five and then game five. If Jasprit had been Bumrah and his four matches didn’t go well, would you have considered removing Bumrah from the squad as well. No. You say, he’s a good bowler, he’ll come back.
