Not worried about the flat tracks in England: Yuzvendra Chahal

NEW DELHI: Australian batsmen driven them out in their convenience zones, handing a rude reality check, but Yuzvendra Chahal is assured that one detached collection will not impact his and Kuldeep Yadav's performance at the World Cup.

Despite his just right display in New Zealand, Chahal performed only one sport against Australia, where he used to be a marginally unlucky because of shoddy fielding earlier than Ashton Turner took him to cleaners.

"I don't think we need to worry too much about the Australia series. We have played enough matches against them. Obviously, you can't win every game that you play. The manner in which Australian batsmen played us, they deserved to win. We should laud their effort and try to do better when we face them next time," Chahal told PTI right through an interview earlier than leaving for England.

In the 2-Three defeat, what used to be being concerned used to be how Kuldeep and Chahal were being easily learn and now not used to be the workforce control taking part in both in tandem. It used to be Ravindra Jadeja who used to be favoured ahead of Chahal.

Asked if the last few months had been different from the primary 18 months, Chahal responded in affirmative.

"I don't see anything different in the past six months when either me or Kuldeep played in the XI. I think most of the times when we both played. It's all about the team combination and what exactly is required in specific conditions," he said.

The flat decks in England could be a nightmare for bowlers but the 28-year-old Haryana leg-spinner is infrequently perturbed, having performed a lot of cricket at the Bengaluru belter.

"I am not at all worried about the flat tracks in England as we are used to playing ODI cricket on flat tracks. And please don't forget that I myself play a lot of matches every year at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, which is one of the best batting tracks," said Chahal, who has 72 wickets from 41 ODIs with two five-wicket hauls.

"And also when we are talking about flat tracks, if as a bowler I am under pressure, even the opposition bowlers will be under equal amount of pressure when we would be batting."

Chahal's greatest asset has been his large middle as he is not afraid to flight the ball even if he is underneath assault and that's the mindset which is helping him against marauders like Andre Russell and David Warner.

"Against the best batsmen, you can't have a defensive strategy. When you are bowling to a Russell or a Warner, you shouldn't think about containing them. They are such players, you have to attack them and in my mind, every delivery that I bowl to these players is to get them out. I want each and every ball that I bowl to to be my best delivery," said Chahal.

The 18 wickets on this 12 months's IPL for the Royal Challengers Bangalore will without a doubt spice up his self belief as there's not anything like taking just right shape into a large event like IPL.

"Obviously, it was very important to do well in IPL. Before a marquee tournament like World Cup, a good IPL acts as a confidence booster."

Before transferring to aggressive cricket, Chahal had represented age-group national workforce in chess pageant, a sport that has more than likely helped him evolve as a master craftsman.

He fondly recollected the days when he would watch a Vladmir Kramnik vs Vishwanathan Anand or Anand vs Kasparov games on Youtube.

"When I used to play competitive chess, I would buy chess books and read the moves made by Anand in specific ties. It would help my game. I would also watch his matches on Youtube. Now I don't get the time," he said.

His lifestyles has changed prior to now two years with fame and adulation which is a normal for any participant doing neatly for the national cricket workforce.

"When you play for India and also start performing, your fan base increases, the media highlights your performances. You feel a sense of positivity with all the praise and adulation that comes your way," he signed off.
