Mount Monganui. The leg-spinner of the Indian cricket team, Yuzvendra Chahal, on Tuesday did not give a clean sweep to New Zealand against New Zealand, saying that there is so much consistency in India’s performance in the last 5 years that the defeat in the ODI series is not worrying. New Zealand won the third ODI by 5 wickets on Tuesday to clinch it 3-0.
Chahal said after the match, “Overall if you look, in the last 4-5 years we have lost only the fourth or fifth series. The other team also plays. You cannot win every match. We won one series, lost the other, so it is not so serious to be churned out. ”Chahal said the youngsters would learn a lot from the experience of playing in New Zealand.
The leg-spinner said, “Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal came in the team, so the youngsters got an opportunity to play outside India. Playing in New Zealand is not easy. But overall, it was just one ODI series. We had won the T20 series 5–0, for the first time, this is also a positive side for us. ‘
Lokesh Rahul hit a fourth ODI century while Shreyas Iyer also hit a half-century which helped India to 296 for 7 wickets. Chahal appreciated the effort of both of them.
He said, ‘You can see confidence in him. He is 25–26 years old and batting with maturity. They understand the situation very well. Batting in the middle overs will not be easy, especially when the spinner is bowling. Rahul has also batted in the top order. So it shows maturity that he knows what the team needs. ‘
Chahal praised the hosts but also said that fielding is a matter of concern for India. He said, “He gave an exceptional performance in this series. So we have to appreciate it. Poor fielding also occurred at times. It happens in 1 out of 10 series, we have time till the next one-day international series. ‘
When Chahal was asked that he and Kuldeep Yadav have not played together after the World Cup, he said, “Ravindra Jadeja is performing brilliantly, be it batting or bowling or fielding.” So I play half the matches and half Kuldeep. ”Chahal, however, said that after playing a limited domestic season, playing 8 limited overs matches in 22 days has nothing to do with his defeat.
