- Rahul Chahar has been dropped from the team.
- Rahul took 2 wickets in the UAE edition of the IPL.
- He took one wicket for 43 runs in the warm-up match.
Former India captain Aakash Chopra has ruled out Rahul Chahar, who has been ruled out of Mumbai Indians’ last few matches due to a lack of form. It was Rahul’s discoloration in the warm – up match that led Chopra to such an assessment. The England batsmen scored easily in Rahul’s overs.
Chopra has hinted that he will not get a place in the team. He, however, declined to name the bowler. Yusvendra Chahal was dropped and Rahul was included in the squad. But while Chahal is playing in good form, Rahul’s fading is a headache for the Indian team management. Varun Chakraborty and Ravindra Jadeja will be India’s key spinners in the World Cup. R Ashwin may also get a chance in some games.
Rahul has played in four matches in the UAE edition of the IPL. He took 2 wickets in total. And Rahul was not stingy in conceding runs. If such a player is played in the World Cup, India may suffer a setback. India reached the World Cup with five spinners. However, Chahal, India’s best spinner, was left out. If India perform poorly in the World Cup, the omission of Chahal may be criticized in the future.
