Rohit interviews Chahal after ODI win

Ahmedabad: India white-ball skipper Rohit Sharma turned anchor as he interviewed leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who achieved the milestone of reaching 100 wickets here in the first one-day match against the West Indies. India beat the West Indies by six wickets in the first ODI here at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday. Chahal was the star in India’s win as he claimed five wickets and was adjudged player of the match. Rohit asked Chahal how he felt after reaching the 100 ODI wicket landmark. “I have bit of ups and down in my career. It’s a good feeling to take 100 wickets in any format. I never thought that this would happen this early,” replied Chahal. The skipper asked Chahal if was working on something new in his bowling style while he was not the part of the team. In reply, the leg-spinner said: “When I wasn’t there in the team I thought about what I can improve. So, I used to see other bowlers, sometimes they used to bowl sidearm.” Rohit concluded the interview by saying: “You are a very important player for us, I want you to play with the same mindset. There is a high and low, so it is important to keep the mindset at the right place.” Chahal has 103 ODI wickets in 60 outings in the international cricket. He became the fourth fastest Indian bowler after Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav to reach 100 wicket mark. UNI BAV MR
