Axar Patel or Yuzvendra Chahal? Who should be India Cricket Team's third spinner at the ICC T20 World Cup to pair Jadeja & Kuldeep

Team India’s bowling unit is yet to be finalised for the ICC T20 World Cup. A lot of permutations and combinations could be done based on the squad India will be sending to the USA and West Indies. A huge focus will be on the spinners owing to the slow nature of the pitches in America. This leads to the question – Who will be India’s third spinner in the team?

India’s spin department will be headed by Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav. However, should the occasion arise, when India need the use of a third spinner – who will it be? Axar Patel or Yuzvendra Chahal?

Axar Patel or Yuzvendra Chahal?

Yuzvendra Chahal started IPL 2024 with a bang. But, batters slowly picked his trick and went on to hammer blows. Ever since the hammering by Sunil Narine, he has bowled at an economy of above 10. The highest coming against SRH where it was above 15.

Now it certainly will be a huge risk to bring in Yuzvendra Chahal where batters can freely swing their arms to hit the ball out of the park. In such a scenario, Axar Patel is the best bet to have. Not only does the southpaw contribute with the bat, he has been good with the ball as well.

10 wickets in 12 IPL 2024 matches with an economy if 7.32, speaks volumes about his calibre. As a result, Axar, Jadeja and Kuldeep can form a formidable spin trio in the T20 World Cup.
