Chahal has made the most out this chance

Chahal is one of India's three spinners in the squad.

The other two are Kuldeep and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.

What Chahal showed today, was that skipper Virat Kohli can count upon him when given a chance.

Kuldeep is the ideal option for India, but Chahal can always stake his claim.

He has an impressive 62 wickets in 45 ODIs at an average of 23.76.

Chahal a vital member of this Indian side

With the ICC World Cup 2019 starting from May 30 onwards in England and Wales, the spinner has brought a positive mood in the camp with this show. There is no doubt that Chahal can have a lasting influence in the World Cup.
