Yuzvendra Chahal misses simple run-out chance: The Indian spinner had an off-day on the field in the last T20I against Bangladesh.
During the third T20I of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of India in Nagpur, India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal committed a blunder to miss dismissing Bangladesh opening batsman Mohammad Naim.
It all happened on the second delivery of the 12th over when Naim cut a Chahal delivery to India pacer Deepak Chahar at point. The attempt to run a risky single saw Naim short of his crease at the non-striker’s end.
With Chahal collecting the ball a bit far from the stumps, his aim to under-arm the ball to the stumps saw him missing it altogether. The reaction on both Chahal and India captain Rohit Sharma’s face was enough to explain the situation.
With Naim going against the Indian bowlers, it was vital to get him out. The same was eventually done by all-rounder Shivam Dube who registered praiseworthy bowling figures of 4-0-30-3.
The highlight of Naim’s innings remained him targeting Chahal and hitting three consecutive fours off the first three balls he bowled. Other missing the run-out, Chahal also remained expensive tonight with bowling figures of 4-0-43-1.
Chasing a 175-run target, Bangladesh were bundled out for 144 in 19.2 overs on the back of Chahar registering best-ever T20I bowling figures of 3.2-0-7-6. The 27-year old cricketer also became the first Indian bowler to grab a T20I hat-trick.
The record-breaking spell saw Chahar winning both the Man of the Match and Man of the Series award. Given his consistency in the format, the right-arm pacer has put forward a serious case of playing the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia. In seven T20Is, Chahar has dismissed 14 batsmen at an average of 10, an economy rate of 5.75 and a strike rate of 10.4.
