Yuzvendra Chahal says “Confidence is key in bowling” in IPL 2021. Chahal has said that he has recovered his confidence. After a difficult spell that saw him lose his spot in India’s squad for the ICC T20I World Cup. He has found his form in the second part of the IPL in the United Arab Emirates. After his match performance in the RCB win over the Rajasthan Royals. Yuzvendra Chahal believes the series against Sri Lanka in the lead-up to the Indian Premier League. It is for helping him to restore his confidence.
“Two left-handers were batting, so Virat said let’s go with the medium pacer,” Yuzvendra Chahal after the game. “He told me I will come when Lewis gets out, but I came on since Lewis was still going good. (Bowling style) I wanted them to play over covers since it’s wider there. Wanted to also blow slower. In the first half of IPL, I didn’t bowl well in 3-4 games. Then I spoke to players and families about what I’m doing wrong. And then I regained confidence in Sri Lanka. Confidence is key in bowling, so I am using that here.”
Yuzvendra’s spell to be a determining one. It helped swing the game in the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s favor. Chaha took the important wickets of Mahipal Lomror and Liam Livingstone. Moreover, his bowling at the death proved to be excellent. He conceded just 18 runs in his quota of four overs.
Lastly, the result means that Bangalore now has 14 points to their title. Chahal will be hoping that he can continue to perform. At the level that he has shown in recent games.
