India’s best spinner at the moment and one of Virat Kohli’s go-to men in tight situations, Yuzvendra Chahal has a knack for picking up wickets when it is most needed. He first turned heads with his impressive performance in the Under-19 Cooch Behar Trophy of 2009. He ended the tournament as the leading wicket-taker and also scored 300 runs. Initially picked up by the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, it was his move to Royal Challengers Bangalore and subsequent performances that made him a household name. It is his ability to outsmart the batsman that has seen him become India’s finest wrist spinner.
