Chahal jumps 92 spots in latest ICC T20 Rankings

England’s Joe Root and India wrist-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal have made impressive gains in the latest ICC T20I Player Rankings, which were released on Thursday following the three-match series which concluded in Bengaluru on Wednesday.

Root finished as the leading run-scorer in the series with 126 runs for which he has been rewarded with a jump of two places that has put him in fifth position.


Virat Kohli: "Chahal has a lot of skill and he has the character as well"

Heaping praise on leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, whose six wickets helped India clinch the third and final T20 International against England by 75 runs, India skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday said he has a "lot of faith" in the youngster's abilities.

Chahal returned with figures of 6/25, to trigger England's collapse which saw eight wickets going down for eight runs as the visitors' innings folded for a meagre 127 in response to India's mammoth 202/6.


Morgan said: "Outstanding bowling from Chahal"

Terming it as the "worst performance" in the last two years, England skipper Eoin Morgan reckoned that his and Joe Root's quick wickets was the turning point for India's 75-run win in the third and final T20 International on Wednesday.

"We made a fatal error in losing two in (set) batsmen when we were going so well. Our batting performance was possibly the worst in the last two years, but we won't necessarily dwell too much into that," Morgan said in the post-match presentation after India clinched the T20I series 2-1 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Eight wickets for 8 runs in 19 balls instigated by 26 year old leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's match winning figures of 6-25 in his 4 overs enabled India to rout England by 75 runs in the third and final Twenty20 International of the series at Chinnaswamy Stadium, and with it take the series 2-1.

Batting first having been put in to bat, India recovered from their poor past performances to post a competitive total of 202-6 in their 20 overs, led by half-centuries from Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni, assisted by a late blitz from Yuvraj Singh, who pummeled 27 from just 10 balls.
