India and Rajasthan Royals leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal recently talked about his plans for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. He talked about how his current priority is the Indian Premier League. The 31-year-old also expressed that he is ‘confident’ about getting into the World Cup squad.
While speaking in an interview with Times of India, he said, “My first focus is on the IPL right now. I want to perform here and take my team to wins and take as many wickets as I can. I want to take it one step at a time. I want to go from tournament to tournament. Representing your team at the World Cup is a big honour for a player.”
“The two World Cups coming up are certainly on my mind, but I want to focus on the present right now. The way I am bowling, I am pretty confident that I will make it to the World Cup squad.”
He also talked about how the Indian team under Rohit Sharma can win the World Cup as they have a lot of talented players. He said, Yes, of course. I am confident Rohit bhaiya will take us to a World Cup win. We have a strong team. We have a bunch of talented players. We have 15 to 20 players who can do wonders for the team. We have a super-strong team and we have a bright chance of lifting the trophy this time.”
‘KulCha will dominate again’
In the interview, Chahal also expressed happiness towards fellow India wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav’s recent success in the opening match of the IPL as he won the Player of the Match award. Yadav was playing for the Delhi Capitals and took three wickets for just 18 runs.
He said, “I am very happy. Kuldeep is like my younger brother. We share a very good bond both on and off-field. He was coming back after injuries and raring to go. I missed him on the field. I hugged him when he hit the ground after a long time. I want to share the ball with him and take as many wickets as possible with him. KulCha will dominate again.”
