Legendary leg-spinner Yajuvendra Chahal, who performed the best bowling in an innings of T20 International cricket from India, also got an Indian record of the worst bowling analysis in an innings here yesterday. Chahal scored 64 runs in his 4 overs in the second T20 International against South Africa and he did not get any wicket. In this way, he has become one of the most expensive bowlers in an innings by India.
Earlier this record was in the name of Joginder Sharma, who had looted 57 runs in four overs in Durban against England in 2007. Incidentally, the record of best bowling performance in an innings of T20 International from India is also in the name of Chahal. He had taken 6 wickets in Bangalore in February 2017 against Bengal in Bangalore.
In terms of best performances, where the world is at third place in World Twenty20, the United States has reached the third place in the worst performance. Ireland’s Barry McCarthy (69 runs in 4 overs) and South Africa’s Kyle Abbott (68 runs in 4 overs) are the first two places in the list of the most expensive bowlers. After this, James Anderson, Sanath Jayasuriya, Andrew Tie and Ben Weiller are among the losers.
Voyager of New Zealand had looted 64 runs in Australia against Australia in Auckland last week. Australia’s Ti also gave 64 runs in 4 overs in this match. This is the 8th opportunity in T20 International, while an Indian bowler has scored 50 or more runs in an innings.
Chahal has been named for the second time in this list and he is the first Indian bowler to do so. In December last year, he had scored 52 runs in 4 overs against Sri Lanka in Indore, but then he also got 4 wickets. Not only here, there are 7 sixes during the match at the Chahal balls. In this way, he has also become the Indian bowler who has been the loser in an innings. Earlier, the Australians had made 6 sixes in Ravindra Jadeja’s 2 overs in Bridgetown in 2010.
