WATCH : Yuzvendra Chahal opens County account with dazzling leg-spinner


When India revealed their 15-man squad for the World Cup, one noticeable absence was Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the nation’s prominent spin bowlers. His bowling prowess alone wasn’t sufficient to secure him a spot on the roster.

However, the 33-year-old cricketer remained committed to honing his skills. He announced his maiden participation in the County Championship with Kent, and his debut performance against Nottinghamshire immediately set the tournament ablaze.

Chahal needed less than 10 overs to make his mark in England’s premier domestic competition. He left an indelible impression by dismissing Lyndon James with an absolutely unplayable delivery. The seasoned spinner floated a full delivery on the middle and leg, enticing the batsman to step forward defensively.

However, the cricket ball spun magnificently, eluding the outer edge of the bat, and crashed into the off-stump. The batsman appeared utterly bewildered by the turn of events and took a moment to come to grips with the remarkable delivery.

As the innings progressed, Chahal went on to claim two more wickets in quick succession, elevating his figures to a remarkable 3/52.
