“We trust you”- Yuzvendra Chahal says Rahul Dravid always backs him
Yuzvendra Chahal grabbed the wicket of Brandon King to give India an upper hand. Chahal credited India head coach Rahul Dravid for trusting him to bowl the tough overs. “The coach always backs me. He tells me ‘Yuzi just back your strengths, we trust you,” Chahal said after the match. “And when the coaches and management give you that much confidence you are always ready to go and perform,” he added.
Chahal scalped two wickets and conceded 58 runs. He was the main bowler in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mohammad Shami.
“This change has come from the IPL, because there I was bowling the 16th, 17th and 18th over, so I got the confidence from there. My role was clear, I was told to bowl two-three overs after the 40th over. So I practice accordingly and also plan with our bowling coach.”
