In such a situation, his luck now rests on the upcoming Sri Lanka tour and the remaining IPL. No one has any hesitation in saying that Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are excellent bowlers, but former India leg-spinner and commentator Laxman Sivaramakrishnan feels Varun Chakraborty will do well in place of Yuzvendra Chahal.
‘Varun Chakraborty can be a good choice’Sivaramakrishnan says that the Indian team should look at Varun in the tour of Sri Lanka. Along with this, he should also give him a chance in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Laxman also says that the team should find other options, apart from this Laxman also believes that if Varun pays attention to his fitness, then he can also get a chance to play T20 World Cup.
Chahal pay attention to variationLaxman Sivaramakrishnan believes that the batsmen have understood Chahal’s balls well for the last few years. Due to which the batsman can easily face his balls, so he wants to advise Chahal to make some changes in his bowling and work on new variations.
