Yuzvendra Chahal is all geared up to take part in the ODI and T20I series against England set to take place from Thursday, July 7 to Sunday, July 17. Chahal has been in excellent form over the last three months or so. The leg-spinner won the Purple Cap while playing for the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
He picked up 27 wickets from 17 matches as RR finished as the runners-up following their defeat to Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans in the final in Ahmedabad. Thereafter, Chahal also bowled his heart out in the five-match T20I series against South Africa and two-match T20I series against Andrew Balbirnie’s Ireland.
In the meantime, the official Twitter handle of the Royals posted a hilarious picture where Chahal was seen striking one of his iconic poses. RR made a collage of three pictures and wrote, “Yuzi has well and truly arrived in England!”

Chahal has been a key member of the Indian team for the last seven years. Although he hasn’t got the chance to represent his side in Test cricket, the tweaker has well and truly made a serious impact for the Men in Blue in the limited-overs formats of the game.
Chahal came to the limelight after he shifted from the Mumbai Indians (MI) to the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL. For the Challengers, he picked up more than 100 wickets before turning up for the Royals in the 2022 edition of the IPL.
