Yuzvendra Chahal, remember that name the next time you are talking about one of the best bowling performances of 2019 by an Indian cricketer.
After finally getting an opportunity to play for his country following skipper Virat Kohli's decision of him replacing the now resting Kuldeep Yadav, Chahal came out with a blistering performance in the third match of the series as he became the first international spinner to pick six wickets in an ODI in Australia.
Ever since his first over, Chahal was in attack-mode as he picked up two of the most important wickets of Shaun Marsh, who was Australia's only hope during the second ODI in Adelaide, and Usman Khawaja.January 18, 2019
After the early break, Chahal was back at it again in the 30th over when, with the efforts of Rohit Sharma who took a sharp catch at slip, the spinner was able to dismiss the very dangerous Marcus Stoinis for meagre 10 runs before baiting Jhye Richardson for an easy catch to Jadhav in the 44th over.
Eventually, Chahal scalped the only threat left on the pitch, Peter Handscomb to achieve his second ODI 5-wicket-haul before quickly dismissing Adam Zampa to record his ODI career-best six wickets at the cost of just 42 runs.January 18, 2019
Chahal's blazing comeback to the Indian cricket team was supported by a highly economical debut by Vijay Shankar, and bowling marvels Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami, both of whom were able to secure two wickets each.
This was the best performance put up by India's bowling side during the ODI series as Australia was wrapped up for a below-average score of 230.
With the Indian batting order looking pretty comfortable right now, it is now up to Virat Kohli and his batsmen to bring this one home.
