Chahal now leads the wickets tally for India in overall T20s. He owns 281 wickets from 248 T20s at 23.88. The tally includes two five-wicket hauls.


Chahal is the only Indian spinner to have taken over five wickets in a T20I inning (6/25 vs ENG, 2017). The feat has been attained by just one other Indian.


Despite winning accolades in white-ball cricket, Chahal hasn't had much dominance at the FC level. He has claimed 84 scalps across 31 matches at 33.21 (two five-fors).
