Yuzvendra Chahal’s Asia Cup snub, according to Tom Moody

Yuzvendra Chahal’s Asia Cup snub, according to Tom Moody. Yuzvendra Chahal not chosen for India’s team to compete in the upcoming Asia Cup.

India’s 17-person lineup for the next Asia Cup has been criticize by Tom Moody for not include an off-spinner. Kuldeep Yadav will be the only frontline spinner for India, with all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel serving as the spin all-rounders.

Kuldeep and Yuzvendra Chahal, according to Moody, don’t offer anything with the bat. Which is why the selectors were unable to include both of them in the side for the Asia Cup. The 57-year-old responded that the lack of an off-spinner in the lineup wouldn’t be a problem because Kuldeep will be there to remove the ball from left-handers.

Chahal and Kuldeep are both specialize bowlers. Stop there. They don’t provide any other services. They are unable to impact that batting order at No. 8 and provide them depth. On the Star Sports/ESPN Cricinfo program “Selection Day Live,” Moody stated, “I think that’s one of the factors that has gone against Chahal.

In the end, Kuldeep is spinning the ball away from the left-handers when you are talking about no off-spinner. So, you’ve covered that ground. I don’t see a significant problem. You may consider an off-spinner if you had a spare position, but I honestly don’t believe the squad needs one,” he continued.

Tilak Varma could be an option if India want to have an off-spinner 

The young Tilak Varma made an impression in his first series in the Caribbean, winning the most runs for India in the five-match T20I series and earning a position in the Asia Cup team as a result. The 20-year-old is a capable off-spinner, and in the fifth T20I, he bowled a few overs and removed the in-form Nicholas Pooran. Tilak might be helpful with his supplemental bowling if India can squeeze him into the starting XI. However, with seasoned players like Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul returning to the team, it will be challenging for him to earn his ODI cap in the Asia Cup.
