Chahal: "It's not just Dhoni, but every individual"

"Apart from him, Virat and Rohit also always look to help us out. I think in our team every person is their own captain and we all respect each other," Chahal further said to IANS, as he asserted that every individual has a role.

Variations

Chahal plans to stick to basics

Speaking on his bowling, Chahal maintained that he has not fiddled with his variations much and instead, he would be mixing up the variations a lot this time.

"I have worked harder on my fielding and batting. I always feel you need to always add to your skill set and that is what I have tried to do," he professed.

Chahal will want to understand World Cup pitches

"Last year, it was a spinning wicket. But, that was only last year and we will get to know for sure only when we reach there. Once we do, we have got two weeks to prepare," he concluded.
