IND vs NZ: Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal set to battle it out in Down Under, lead spinner spot heats up – Once India’s spin destroyers under Virat Kohli, Chahal and Kuldeep had a quick windfall. The likes of Axar Patel, Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Krunal Pandya, & Washington Sundar – finger spinners edged Chahal and Kuldeep the wrist spinners. A great IPL 2022 season brought KULCHA into the mix. Chahal finished as a purple cap holder, while Kuldeep ended IPL 2022 season with 22 wickets.

With Ashwin, Jadeja, and Axar Patel not part of the T20 series against New Zealand, Chahal and Kuldeep have a great chance to cement their places. But only one among them will be picked.

IND vs NZ: Why one among Chahal and Kuldeep will be picked against New Zealand?

  • Sundar will take one spot owing to the matchups he will give due to being a left-hand spin bowler. Also, the southpaw is pretty handy lower down the order.
  • Three pacers will likely play in the playing XI owing to the seam and swing conditions on offer in New Zealand.
  • With four spots gone, only one spot remains and KULCHA will have to fight for that one wrist spinner slot.
  • Chahal, who was benched for all six games in the T20 World Cup 2022, is likely to get that spot owing to his experience.
  • The leg spinner has scalped 22 wickets in 19 T20I matches in 2022 and is in good form.
  • Yadav has played only two matches in 2022, picking up three wickets.
  • Leg spinners like Shadab Khan, Ail Rashid, and Ish Sodhi had a great impact in T20 World Cup, and hence management may try Chahal in the second T20I.
