Batsmen Couldn't Analyse MI's Rahul Chahar In IPL 2021: Laxman Sivaramakrishnan
Mumbai Indians (MI) leg-spinner Rahul Chahar was impressive in the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) because people could not analyze him, says former India leg-spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan.
Chahar bagged 11 wickets in seven matches to finish fourth in the wicket-takers list in the tournament truncated due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"Chahar was more impressive in his role because people were not able to analyze him that much. Chahar was definitely very gutsy, large-hearted - all the ingredients that a leg spinner needs - and more importantly, [he was] not afraid of getting hit. His body language looked good," wrote Sivaramakrishnan in his column on cricket.com
Chahar, from Bharatpur in Rajasthan, was the top wicket-taker among spinners who bowled in IPL-14, taking wickets at a strike rate of 15.27 and an economy of 7.21.
