India’s leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is counted as one of the finest spinners of the modern era. Chahal is a class bowler produced by the Indian Premier League. The leg-spinner got fame due to his exploits for the franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore in the T20 league. An impressive performance in the T20 Championship fetched the leg-spinner an Indian call-up in 2016.
Since his debut for India in June 2016 with a T20 International against Zimbabwe, Chahal has represented India in 56 One Day Internationals and 49 T20Is. The 31-year-old has 97 ODI and 63 T20I scalps to his credit at an economy rate of 5.20 and 8.32 respectively.
As far as the Indian Premier League is concerned, Yuzvendra has played 107 matches picking 126 wickets at an economy rate of 7.72 and an average of 23.3. The right-hander is currently going through a lean patch in his cricket career. The leg-spinner has failed to produce a decent show with the ball in the recent past.
Chahal’s poor form in the international circuit and the IPL resulted in the leg-spinner getting dropped from India’s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup. However, the Haryana-born is expected to bounce back stronger from the setback as he has a lot of cricket left in him.
Who is Yuzvendra Chahal’s wife Dhanashree Verma
Coming to Yuzvendra Chahal’s personal life, the veteran found his life partner last year only. Chahal tied the knot with Dhanashree Verma in December 2021. The two had a completely filmy story. Notably, Dhanashree is a popular dancer who runs a dance academy.
The two met during the lockdown in 2020 as Chahal requested Verma to teach him to dance. As Yuzvendra and Dhanashree talked with each other, they build a connection and soon started dating each other. Yuzu and his wife Dhanashree had a proper big fat wedding in Delhi.
