Yuzvendra Chahal thanks Kohli, Dhoni for success

Take Me To Post Comment Form

ndia leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal continued his excellent form with the ball as he picked up his maiden five-wicket haul in the second one day international against South Africa at Centurion on Sunday to script India's nine-wicket win.

Chahal finished with 5/22 in 8.2 overs, ripping through the middle-order as India won the toss and skittled their hosts for 118, South Africa's lowest total in home ODI matches.Chahal, who had got two wickets in the 1st ODI at Durban last week, got the wickets of Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy, Khaya Zondo, Morne Morkel and Chris Morris as India bowled out South Africa in 32.2 overs.

This was South Africa's lowest total in an ODI on home soil. Their previous lowest score was 119 http://www.footballvikingsofficial.com/Authentic-Mackensie-Alexander-Jersey against England at Port Elizabeth in November, 2009."Great feeling, Jalen Mills Youth jersey my first five-wicket haul in ODIs, it's a good feeling to perform well for the country. There was a bit of spin, so my idea was to vary my pace.

"This wicket was much better when compared to Durban, the turn was consistent. The captain always backs me, MS (Dhoni) gives me ideas, I have played a fair bit of matches and I know what to do now," Chahal said at the mid-innings break.

The 27-year-old http://www.officialtigerstore.com/Miguel_Cabrera_Jersey started his spell with de Kock's wicket in the 13th over and then continued to pick up wickets in his second spell getting Zondo, Duminy, Morkel and Morris in every over he came on to bowl starting from the 27th over.

Chahal's bowling figures of 5 for 22 are the second best recorded by an Indian bowler against South Africa in ODIs. Former left-arm off-spinner Sunil Joshi tops the list with 5 for 6 Womens Troy Stecher Jersey in Nairobi in 1999.

"Enjoying bowling here. http://www.dallasstarsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Adam-Cracknell-Jersey We used to play in such conditions in India. It's about how mentally tough you are when you go overseas. When I first struck, Kuldeep came in and took two wickets. It puts pressure on the batsmen," Chahal said.

This is also the third instance when Indian spinners have taken 8 Authentic Nolan Cromwell Jersey or more wickets in an ODI outside the subcontinent.Spin twin Kuldeep Yadav was the next best bowler in the first innings as he finished with 3 for 20, which is also his best bowling performance in an ODI bettering the 3 for 34 he got in the previous match at Durban. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah also picked up one wicket each.

India then reached the victory target in 20.3 overs to humiliate their hosts.After victory in the opening match of the six-game series in Durban, India always looked in control of the chase as opener Shikhar Dhawan (51 not out from 56 balls) and captain Virat Kohli (46 not out from 50 balls) made light work of the home attack.

The third match in the series will be played in Cape Town on Wednesday.
